How does it compare to the artist's other releases


Adams song came from the highly criticised Enema Of The State, but one thing that was always said - Adams Song was a standout track with superior quality.
Where Blink182 has always been assosiated with fast tracks about girls and jokes, Adams Song showed a completely different side to their music.

The track is about how a boy is feeling low and in a state of teenage depression. the song tells of a contemplation of suicide with lyrics such as " i never thought i'd die alone", " You'll be sorry when i'm gone" and with a reference to a suicide attempt " i traced the cord back to the wall, no wonder it was never plugged in at all". As the track nears the end we are shown how the boy overcomes his problems to have a different out look. This is shown with lyrics like "Tomorrow holds such better days".

The song is extremely deep, especially for a band who are ,most commonly known for their "potty" humour.

It is easily one of Blink182s best songs from all of their albums.

    Good op, I love Blink, but the Enema Album is definatly not their best, try their new one, "Take of your pants and Jacket", or thier live album, "The Tom, Mark and Travis show...The Enema Strikes Back!", Cheers, Dan
