In 2001 Blink 182 released "Take Off Your Pants And Jacket", which sold 350,000 copies in it's first week of sale and has since gone double platinum. It was originally released on 3 different coloured CD's, each colour containing 1 bonus proper song, and 1 bonus joke song, these were fairly limited. Take Off Your Pants And Jacket contained 3 hit singles with "the Rock Show", "First Date", and "Stay Together For The Kids". After touring the "Pop Disaster Tour" in 2002, Tom started a side project band called "Box Car Racer", to experiment his musical ambitions with songs that were't "Blink Friendly". It served it's purpose with just 1 album being released, although is basically a spiritual predecessor of "Angels And Airwaves". Take Off Your Pants And Jacket is probably my favourite album.
