    Question Skateboarding Playlist

    When I skate, I tend to listen to music. I haven't found a playlist that was specifically good, so I was wondering what you guys listen too to enjoy skating.

    Here is my current list:
    -Minority - Green Day
    -Express Yourself - Labrinth
    -Raincoat - Crash Kings
    -You Cried Me - Grampall Jookabox
    -Dead! - My Chemical Romance
    -Basket Case - Green Day
    -Homesick(Acoustic) & Another Song about the Weekend(Acoustic) - A Day to Remember
    -Rock You Like a Hurricane - Scorpions
    -Paranoid - Black Sabbath
    -Drunken Lullabies - Flogging Molly
    -Paper Wings - Rise Against
    -Three Little Birds & No Woman No Cry & One Love - Bob Marley & The Wailers
    -Float On - Modest Mouse
    -Kick Drum Heart - Avett Brothers
    -All-Star - Smash Mouth
    -TNT - AC/DC
    -My Name is Jonas - Weezer
    -Cliffs Of Dover - Eric Johnson
    -Don't Hold Back - The Sleeping

    I tend to just shuffle these songs, and they seem to work..

    What about you?

    I don't really listen to music while I skate but if I did it would consist of something like this:







    All Beck, but he makes some sick skating music IMO. I like a bunch of other stuff but wouldn't skate to it. Beck songs have that flow.

    I don't have a skateboarding playlist per se, but like xger said I usually like high energy unless I'm just cruising, so mostly I listen to various forms of punk rock when I'm skating, some days are hip hop days though so I guess jus depends on how I'm feeling that day
    any relationship that matters - a friendship, a family, a romance, a band - anything - is a perilous and fragile thing because along with all the amazing experiences and creations that can come from something so intimate and exhausting comes the possibility for things to crumble and shatter or whither and die. when that happens, it's easy to forget what was precious amidst all the disaster. we should always carry our history with us but never let it bury us.

    I don't listen to music while skating. I have before, but my iPod would flop around, or the headphones wire would get tangled in my leg when I ollied or something. It was just more of a hassle than anything, plus I seem to skate better when I can actually hear.

    Yeah, I need to hear the board whether I'm skateboarding or snowboarding, and music on headphones tends to distract me. I don't mind it when it's coming out of a boombox, then I can tune it out.

    I don't listen to music while I skate. I like to talk with my friends and joke around, that's like part of the session!

    i don't have my music anymore, since my ipod keeps disappearing for months at a time.

    but i do have my boombox, and i have a geto boys album, hieroglyphics and affiliates mix, punk rock mix, rap mix, and i gave away my 36 chambers tape to a kid i liked at the park.

    but if i had to make a playlist for skateboarding just today, it'd be something like

    gangstarr - just to get a rep
    biggie smalls - come on
    scarface - still that nigga
    mr green - undefined
    del tha funkee homosapien - pissin' on your steps
    hieroglyphics - mics of the round table
    dr dre - lyrical gangbang
    snoop dogg - vapors
    warren g - regulate
    kurupt - trylogy
    red and meth - rockwilder
    mos def and slick rick - auditorium
    big l - 98 freestyle
    eazy e - wet em up
    brotha lynch - back fade
    wu tang - protect ya neck
    blackstarr - definition
    ugk - murder
    n.w.a. - always into something
