These songs are for the skater-centric scenes in my book. In addition to the ones I mentioned over at today’s Snapshot at NOGOODFORME.COM:
Guns N’ Roses, “Welcome to the Jungle.” It’s about the perfect time in my novel for Guns N’ Roses. I remember every dude I knew really dug this when it came out.
HEALTH, “Die Slow” (ok, not exactly of the time, but of the spirit)
Public Enemy, “Bring the Noise.” I remember one cute skater I knew really loved this tape when it came out. I heard it for the first time through him back in the day.
Nitzer Ebb, “Hearts and Mind”
And just for history’s sake and in honor of the skater I had a crush on in eighth grade who wore an INXS t-shirt all the time: “Need You Tonight”
