The group would release their first album in 1995 entitled Cheshire Cat. Two years later Blink-182 would sign a major label record deal with MCA records and released the album entitled Dude Ranch.

Our top 10 Blink-182 songs list presents 10 of our favorite Blink 182 songs.
# 10 – Josie
We open up our Top 10 Blink-182 Songs list with the great song “Josie.” The song was released on the band’s album entitled Dude Ranch. It was the fourth and final single released from the album. The record was released in 1997. There were so many great songs on the Dude Ranch album, but “Josie,” has always been one of our favorites. This is such the perfect opening song in the way the tune starts out with its Pete Townshend guitar riff setting up the rest of the tune that of course sounds nothing at all like The Who. This is very different rock and roll from that 70s sound. This is the sound of the 1990s and Blink-182 were one of the leading bands of that 90s punk rock pop sound that became so popular with bands like Sum 41, Green Day, Jimmy Eat World, Fall Out Boy, The Offspring and Paramore.
# 9 – Blame It On My Youth
Continuing with our Blink-182 Songs list we turn to one of the band’s most recent songs titled “Blame It on My Youth.” The song was released only two years ago in 2019 on the band’s great album entitled Nine.
