2. "Adam's Song"

Even at the peak of their popularity, Blink-182 wrote more than just silly songs about sex and goofing around. In fact, they get about as serious as possible on "Adam's Song" for Enema of the State. It's basically a teenage suicide note in the form of a song. Mark Hoppus wrote it after reading about a kid that killed himself and left a note for his family. "Give all my things to all my friends," Hoppus sings. "You'll never step foot in my room again/You'll close it off, board it up." Controversy erupted when a Columbine student who lost a friend in the massacre hung himself after playing the song on repeat. The group stressed that the song was anti-suicide, but it still left them extremely rattled.
