Raynor claims he agreed to go to rehab, but that DeLonge and Hoppus were doubtful of his sincerity and subsequently fired him over the phone.

Contrary to DeLonge's statements, Hoppus said that the band had been getting along at the time of their final album. Hoppus went on to state that he and Barker eventually formed +44 at the end of the European leg out of frustration for DeLonge's constant reluctance. Rescheduled dates in early 2002 were also canceled due to DeLonge's problems with his back. Enema of the State went on to sell over 10 million copies worldwide making it the band's best-selling album to that point. In August 2006, Hoppus gave an extensive interview with B182.

Founded by Hoppus, guitarist and vocalist Tom DeLonge, and drummer Scott Raynor, the band emerged from the Southern California punk scene of the early 1990s and first gained notoriety for high-energy live shows and irreverent lyrical toilet humor. A tour with No Doubt in the summer of 2004 was also very successful. In early 1994, Blink signed with Cargo Records. A 4-track was used to record the material. After taking some time off in 2002, recording of the next record began in early 2003.

. Geffen Records released a Greatest Hits compilation on November 1, 2005 in the U. Further problems arose in discussions regarding the band's future recording endeavors. Hoppus and DeLonge had asked drummer Travis Barker of blink-182's support band The Aquabats to fill in for Raynor for the remainder of the tour, thus he had to learn all of the songs in a matter of hours before the show. The album was released in 1997 and was relatively commercially successful, selling 4 million copies worldwide.
Before the end of the year, the band released another two demos, one commonly known as Demo 2 while the other was entitled Buddha. The album reached number 6 on the Billboard 200 in the United States. Hoppus and Barker hesitantly conceded, leading to the cancellation of the upcoming tour. It's expected to be released early next year. In 1999 the band also had small parts in the film American Pie, though Travis Barker was incorrectly credited as Scott Raynor. Initially, Hoppus was hesitant to admit any deliberate correlation between the song and breakup, but has since admitted the song was about DeLonge and the breakup of the band.

It was at this point that Hoppus felt that blink-182 had ceased functioning as a band.
However, a European tour in winter 2001 was canceled in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks. Blink-182 is considered a key group in the development of pop punk; the band's combination of pop melodies with fast-paced punk rock featured a more radio-friendly accessibility than prior bands. According to Hoppus, only around fifty copies of the demo were produced to give to their family and friends. The film is titled One Nine Nine Four and looks at the genre of music in the nineties. Of this last record around 1,000 copies were produced by Filter Records, an independent record company headed by Hoppus's boss. . .
