If Man Overboard had appeared on Enema of the State, where in the tracklist do you think it would fit best?  I feel like between Wendy Clear and Anthem is a pretty good spot for it.

I honestly don't think it would fit on the album. It seems more mature and less straight up pop which is what enema is.

Mark says Jerry didn't like it and that's why it didn't make the onto Enema.  It's funny to me that the song Jerry didn't like, was one of their more mature songs.  But then again Enema of the State has Adam's Song on it, and that's definitely more mature than Man Overboard is.

they demoed it at DML in escondido with partial lyrics; curious that jerry didn't like it. i always assumed it was intentionally held by the label to make sure there was a single in 2000 to hang the live album on.

It is interesting, I always knew Man Overboard was written in the Enema era but I always sort of associate it more with the TOYPAJ era.

To be fair, the two eras aren't very different. In my mind I actually consider those two albums part of the same era of blink, but TOYPAJ does feel slightly different.

Blink "eras" are sort of split by album pairs in my mind. Cheshire and Dude Ranch are early blink era. Enema and TOYPAJ are their own era. Untitled and Neighborhoods are the hiatus era (lol, I don't actually have names for any of these eras), and then California and NINE are the new era.

It's not perfect because obviously Cheshire and Dude Ranch are different. Untitled and Neighborhoods are different. Cali and Nine are different. But they kind of still all work as pairs at the same time.

I dunno I'm just rambling at this point lol

No, I completely agree, always felt the same when it comes to Blink's eras'

I think Man Overboard could have been a good closer, love that song.  Anthem was just okay, but anthems were a 'thing' at the time. 

Man Overboard probably would make for a better closer.  BUT, i really like the thing they've got going on where Enema of the State ends with Anthem, and then their next proper album, TOYPAJ, starts with Anthem pt 2.  There's like a sense of poetry or something there that I wouldn't want to disturb.

WHAT?! 

Anthem might just be my favourite song from the Enema & Take Off era haha. Although I do think Man Overboard would've made a great closer as track 13 on the album.

Lol funny you say that because that's how I always differentiated Enema and TOYPAJ.

Enema I think of red shirt Mark, backwards hat Tom, TOYPAJ I think of baggy black clothing

TOYPAJ is more immature than Enema. Enema has the sexual lyrics and lighthearted songs but not so low brow if you know what I mean

Also I don't associate Man Overboard with Enema. I used to think it got recorded in 2000, so I'll always think of it as a bonus track. Interesting that Jerry Finn didn't like it. Enema is perfect anyway so I don't know where it would fit.

I always felt bad for Scott Raynor that they made this song.. I mean its not wrong, but its just that they make this hit about him from their perspective, and since he was not in the band anymore he didnt really get the chance to speak his mind and are just silenced in some way
