On-Air With Shelby | Blink-182 members Mark Hoppus and Matt Skiba sat down with with me before their Pepsi Center show to talk about revisiting Enema of the State 20 years later, and looking forward to the new record, Nine.

But first... if you say, 'I'm from Fort Collins,' the band replies with: 'Bill Stevenson.' Both Hoppus and Skiba knew where Fort Collins was before I had to say, 'It's a college town, an hour north of Denver.' This is because of The Blasting Room Studios, obviously.

'I think I like it better now than I did back in '99.'

Take a look back on the record that made 'nobody likes you when you're 23' a household phrase and brought us the song 'Family Reunion,' and while the band may not have fully 'grown up' over the last two decades, they've comparatively matured on the upcoming album (but I mean, yeah, there were still butt jokes last night).

The upcoming record Nine is still upbeat, pop-punk Blink, but it's lyrically heavy; so much, it earned Hoppus a new nickname.

Blink-182's ninth studio album, Nine, comes out on Friday, September 20.
