"Stay Together for the Kids" is the third single from pop punk band Blink-182's record "Take Off Your Pants and Jacket". Although Mark Hoppus sings the song's two verses, Tom DeLonge, who sings the choruses, wrote this song about his parents' divorce during his teen years.

The bridge of the song "Ben Wah Balls" on the "Cheshire Cat" album contains a riff very similar to the intro of "Stay Together for the Kids", possibly an early incarnation of the riff.

Video

opted to re-shoot the video, as they felt the images of the house coming down were too similar to the images of the attacks in New York. The original version of the video is only available on a few of the band's DVD releases, as well as on [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moidPfDvRic YouTube] .

They re-shot the video several weeks later, with a similar theme although this time the house used wasn't on the verge of falling down (intense winds instead swept through the band's performance during the song's chorus), and didn't come down during the video though they used the same extras in both versions of the videos. The original version of the video is only available on a few of the band's DVD releases. The scene where the house is hit by the wrecking ball can be also seen in the video for "Not Now".
