ive always liked the trademark pick slide for punk pop, but i cant seem to figure out how to get that sound (example would be in blink 182 "not now" before the 1st power chord riff). it seems so simple but i just cant get it, any advice?

first, set your overdrive/distortion on really high.

and if its the not now sound you want specificall, do it on the g string, but in genrall, either d or g would work

Yes, high gain settings are always good for things like that and pinch harmonics, etc. But also remember to not actually "push" your pick onto the frets when you're sliding, but rather just run them along the grooves of your string without letting the pick touch the neck or frets.
