    First record with a Parental Advisory label that my mom purchased for me. Got my hands them other ways prior to it, but this was the first one I was technically "allowed" to have.

    I remember buying it on release day. Safe to say this album was instrumental in forming my music tastes moving forward. It hasn't held up as well as their other releases but I still think it has some of their best songs (Online Songs, Every Time I Look For You, Please Take Me Home) and its still an awesome summer record.

    Probably well in the minority, but this remains my favorite from them. Can't believe it's been this long.

    Easily my favorite record, I think it's Marks finest hour personally.

    That's insane it's been that long. I'm pretty sure I like it more than Enema too.

    Ya know what's really stupid is Dude Ranch was the first CD I ever bought (with 'allowance' money, aw) and next year it will be 20 years old...

    My favorite Blink album also. Such a great summer pop punk record.

    I remember driving around Charlotte trying to find the three different versions of the record.

    Constant horror and bone-deep dissatisfaction.

    One of the best pop punk records of the '00s. No, well, actually one of the best pop punk records ever.

    We know it from the silence

    Had the "take off" cd, but really was hoping for the yellow pants one. 15 years, damn.

    Bought all three releases for the bonus tracks. Gave the others to friends once I ripped them.

    I think this is Mark's best album - and oddly, I think the back half is BETTER than the front. This is an "all hits, no misses" record up there with FUCT and Deja for me.

    SRC Vinyl teased a TOYPAJ announcement soon. Hopefully a vinyl repress. They repressed all their other albums except this one recently.

    If they do, it's spendy but worth it. I got the press they did a while ago. Two LPs and three 45s, each one of the three colors with the bonus tracks. Pretty cool.
