Blink-182 - Dude Ranch

Alternative Press just said this was one of the most influential albums of the 1990's. Together with Green Day's Dookie, Blink-182 forever cemented skate-punk into the mainstream. Rudimentary chords, and lyrics that sound like they were written by a sophomore in high school, Tom Delonge, Mark Hoppus, and Scott Raynor (this is pre-Travis Barker) took the basics of punk and applied to to girls, parents, and how much school sucked. This seriously sounds like a well-produced demo tape. But for some reason, it's amazing. Standout tracks: "Dammit," and "Josie." Rating: 10/10
