Tony Hawk Joins Punk Rock Supergroup On New Pair Of Singles

Everyone knows that skateboarding and punk rock go together, like ramps and scraped knees or mohawks and denim jackets. Legendary pro skateboarder Tony Hawk clearly understands this, as evidenced by the stellar punk rock bands that appear on his hit video game series, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, now in its 20th iteration.

Bands like The Ataris, The Suicide Machines, Dead Kennedys, The Vandals and more add energy and attitude to the game’s digital environment, inspiring players to perform crazy kicks and slides bold!

Now Tony Hawk is stepping into the spotlight for his first tour as the leader of punk rock! Hawk joins legendary punk rock supergroup, Punk Rock Karaoke for their debut single. Punk Rock Karaoke featuring Circle Jerks/Bad Religion guitarist Greg Hetson, drummer Darrin Pfeiffer (formerly of Goldfinger), Randy Bradbury of Pennywise and Stan Lee of The Dickies, has been a SoCal staple since 1996 and is now releasing his first single with the help of Hawk who strings together two classics – “In The City” by The Jam and “Neat Neat Neat!” from The Damned.

Hawk had this to share about the release: “I was honored to be chosen to sing these iconic songs with such legendary musicians. The Jam and The Damned were two of my favorites growing up, so if my career as a singer ends with this 7″, it was worth it.”
