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. Rather than choose one song from the pop punk classic, Patent Pending recorded a medley of all 12 tracks. Due to legal complications, the band is giving the song away for free. Head to the replies to stream and download the medley.
