I remember when I first heard the term “Skate Rock” – it was some time in the in the 80′s. I automatically wanted to hear what it was all about, and every band had their own sound, which was killer. Back in the day, you had two types of Skate Rock bands: the bands that had pro skaters in them, such as the Faction, Skoundrelz, Jones and many more; then there were the hardcore bands that just skated every fucking day and even wrote songs about it, such as JFA, Minor Threat, Suicidal Tendecies, The Big Boys and many more. The now editor of Thrasher Magazine, Jake Phelps, is an OG Boston punk rocker. He went to San Franisco while on tour with SSD and never left. Now let’s talk about the present day skaters who still love loud music and booze, so skate rock is still alive. In the Thrasher skate video Killing Time you can see exactly what I mean. It features Tony Trujillo, Julien Stranger, Dustin Dollin, Don Nguyen, Justin Figueroa, Thomas Bonilla, Al Partanen, Raven Tershy, Lee Ralph, Ryan Mcwhirter, Grant Taylor, Nick Trapasso, Dane Burman, Bryan Herman, Braydon Szafranski, Sammy Baca, Pat McLain, Sean Gutierrez, Jake Phelps & many more…this a film that takes you in the world of pro skating like no other! So after the jump, grab your six pack and watch Killing Time!
