You may have noticed a glaring omission from Patent Pending's Spring Break '99 EP. Sure, they covered such classic artists as Limp Bizkit, Backstreet Boys and Smash Mouth, but when I think of music from 1999, Blink 182's Enema of the State is the first to come to mind.

Head to the replies to stream and download the medley.
