Background Story

Take Off Your Pants and Jacket is the fourth studio album by Blink-182. The title is a tongue-in-cheek pun on male masturbation (“take off your pants and jack it”). Previous titles had included If You See Kay (a pun on the spelling of “fuck”) and Genital Ben, accompanied by a bear on the cover of the album (a reference to Gentle Ben).
