Music Facts Wiki

"Man Overboard" is a song by Blink-182 from their live CD The Mark, Tom and Travis Show (The Enema Strikes Back!). "Man Overboard", however, is a studio recording. It was released as a single in October 2000 and peaked at number two on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart.


The words "So sorry, it's over" are repeated throughout the song, a reference to an earlier Blink-182 song on Dude Ranch, "Untitled." The song is alleged to be about drummer Scott Raynor departing the band.

Music video[]

The video was directed by Marcos Siega and released in 2000. It is a parody of Blink-182's previous videos. The band can be seen traveling to a show, falling asleep in the van. Mark dreams about midgets, who look like the band members, recreating the "What's My Age Again?" video. Tom is dreaming of the little trio recreating "Adam's Song". Finally, Travis dreams of them recreating "All the Small Things". These sequences are interspersed with footage of the band playing live at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, California. They arrive at their show at a Los Angeles club playing with Fenix Tx and are greeted by the tiny trio in their dream sequences, resulting in the members screaming and running.
