it's funny to go back to skateboarder magazines and read what wins the reader's poll each month for best band. it's usually LED ZEP, NUGENT, DEVO, SEX PISTOLS (in a punk month)...

Boca Raton, Florida: Tony, you turned me on to Ted Nugent's music by simply saying that you listened to his tunes while shredding pools and drainage ditches (I read this in an early Skateboarder magazine interview). Do you still rock out to The Nuge?
Tony Alva: Occasionally. I've kind of moved on, but I was enthusiastic about Ted's music at the time.

I've wanted to hear the Drunk Injuns since high scholl but never have. Do they rule?
Posted: Feb 9, 2006 9:22 pm
 
No. They're much cooler in concept than they actually sound.
Posted: Feb 9, 2006 9:22 pm
 
Not really skate punk, but "I Sin for a Living" by the Meatmen always got me, er,...stoked.

"Burn the little panties off of newborns w/a bunson burner..."

i have an old thrasher with a long interview with zodiac mindwarp.

in 7th grade i used to buy any music i saw covered in there. the first picture of lux interior i ever saw was of him drinking wine out of a high heel being poured by rodney mullen, so while not technically skatepunk either any of the stuff i originally found out about in there works for me.

That Notes From the Underground section was the shit, covering the Meatmen and Green On Red on the same page -crazings!

Stupids were great.

Let's Go Get Cokes is pretty excellent but the rest of those Faction songs aren't much better than the Drunk Injuns.

Lots of skaters I knew listened to the Cure. But then, I knew a lot of posers. That was also the summer of the first Urban Dance Squad tape.

a lot of the dogtown dudes became big suicidal tendencies fans because it was red dog's little brother's band.

S.T.R.E.E.T.S. skating totally rules everything else totally sucks. i think they are from vancouver. their pretty good, and most of their songs are about skating,

POWERMAD

I owned a couple Powermad albums. Shredding. They had a cameo in Wild at Heart too. Suicidal and the Venice crew (Beowulf, Excel) were pretty sweet in the early days.

I didnt bust that many boards. i wasnt living as large back when I was a kid.

Kilslug. All my skater friends were into them. You had to do all your moves in sloooowwww motion.
Posted: Feb 10, 2006 6:24 pm
 
Excel, SNFU's "Time To Buy A Futon" from Thrasher Skate Rock 5, Screaming Lord Salba and His Heavy Friends, 7 Seconds, Naked Lady Wrestlers, Bad Shit (tony trujillo's band with Jake Phelps), etc... but my all-time favorites are without a doubt JFA. I heard all this stuff way before the ramones, Cramps, sex pistols, etc. When I finally heard the Pagans, JFA even made more sense.

Mathew; let me guess, you rode a Zorlac board, right?
Posted: Feb 11, 2006 8:55 pm
 
Spits! but Eric got that covered.

runner up is Shed. Sam Hitz, Darren Navarette, AL Partanen and all they sing about is killing rollerbladers.

fuck yeah!

i just wanna say that (while it was posted what seems like years ago) the first half of the first side of the Surf Punks album is fucking - a (the a is for awesome dummy). This is what the Beach Dudes sound like but not nearly as sophisticated. By the way, stay off my wave.

Corrosion of Conformity was pretty skate when they did their first 2 albums. COC Bassist/singer Mike Reid was doing some pretty neato street moves outside the hall when I saw COC in Lincoln, NE in 1985.

Bl'ast! were both surfers and skaters (and the biggest rip-offs of Black Flag in history.)

Stalag 13 (Nardcore skating straight edge.)

Damn! Great answers all over the place. I just remember my face slamming against the concrete, chipping teeth, while listening to Minor Threat do '12XU'. I eventually realized skating was not for me...That's when I said "fuck it!" and started smoking cloves instead.
Posted: Feb 15, 2006 8:07 pm
 
Agreed with many others that JFA comes first to mind. I know a bunch of kids that listened to Posh Boy stuff like CH3 and that Beach Blvd. compilation (even though that's more pop-punk/surf style). Slayer, anyone??? I heard "7 and 7 is" first on a skate video.
Posted: Feb 15, 2006 8:41 pm
 
Alternative Tentacles has released this skate-punk series with FREE BEER (Tommy + Tony Guerrero) and LOS OLIVADOS releases. Not sure if there are any others.

My fave was Cryptic Slaughter

JFA
Anthrax

AT has the Drunk Injuns too

which I like but then maybe that's just cause I'm a Los O's fanatic

locally we had Opinion Zero and their great song "Skate Juarez" and Civil Order and their unhit "Glory Skater"...what I'm wondering is when skatepunk went from being a term about a band that skated to being a term for bands that wanted to affiliate themselves with skateboarding culture even if no members actually skated? was it when GnR got in thrasher with Axl on a mountain bike?

or are people just saying bands that they listened to while skating so therefore it's skatepunk?

what about Code Of Honor...or nowadays Hightower

i like to skate vert ramp rockin out to ENYA. or BREAD.......?
