Music has everything to do with skateboarding - every skater has his or her own favorite songs and bands that help get us stoked up to try stuff, help get us stay pumped, help get us into the mood for skateboarding.
The following list is half my own favorite bands to listen to while I skate, and half suggestions pulled from the Skate Forum.
Take a look for some skateboarding music ideas, and then drop in the Skateboarding Forum and say what music you like to skateboard to! CKY is famous for their music and videos, and the close link between CKY and Bam Margera (his brother is in the band), and Jackass - which then spawned Wild Boys and Viva La Bam!
CKY has been around since 1996 - the CKY videos and music have been a favorite of skaters for a long time.
Check Amazon rating » The Offspring has a huge pile of great music to get your blood pumpin' - I love listening to these guys.
Some favorites for skateboarding are: "All I Want", "One Fine Day", "Come Out Swinging", and "Falling".
But there's plenty more - The Offspring is the kind of music that will get your adrenaline going if you're into it.
I always seem to want to move a lot and break stuff when listening to Offspring ... Some of my favorite Dogwood songs for skateboarding are: "Building a Better Me", "The Good Times", and "Never Die".
Check Amazon rating » Dogwood is one of those bands that not everyone's heard of, but for those who have, you see Dogwood patches on their jackets. Dogwood works for me to keep me going, once I'm already stoked up a bit.
