Skateboarding has been closely associated with music for decades, and there are many songs that are popular among skateboarders. Here are some of the most well-known skateboard songs, that actually evolve around the skateboarding theme. Watch and listen to them, you’ll be surprised by the absolute variation of music genres and I particularly like the “kick push” by Lupe Fiasco, this one really caught me by surprise. 

There are many songs that feature skateboarding either in their lyrics or music videos. Here are some examples:

    1. “Skateaway” by Dire Straits – This song is about a woman who loves to skate and features lyrics like “She’s a rollercoaster, you can see it in her eyes, she’s a skaterboy.”

    2. “Sk8er Boi” by Avril Lavigne – This song tells the story of a girl who falls in love with a skateboarder and features the chorus “He was a skater boy, she said see you later boy.”

    3. “Skate or Die” by Teenage Bottlerocket – This punk rock song includes lyrics like “Skate or die, it’s a way of life, no pain no gain, we’ll ride through the night.”

    4. “Kick Push” by Lupe Fiasco – This hip-hop song tells the story of a young man who discovers his love for skateboarding and includes lyrics like “Kick, push, coast, and away, let’s roll, don’t stop, the wheels in my soul.”

    5. “heaven is a halfpipe” by OPM. This was a very popular song at the time and still is inside my car, which features lyrics evolving around the culture of skateboarding

Ok, hopefully that list has you pumped, so go, get out, and roll on.
