Anyone like Mike V And The Rats? I would classify them as punk/grunge. Anyway, does anybody else like them?

Man Mike V is intense, I've seen him skate, play, lecture, wrestle, fight and he will still say thank you for holding the door. What a guy, seriously.

I never understood why skateboarding is such a big part of punk.

It's still a sport and has that jock mentality thats representative of mainstream culture. But I'm also an idiot.

well for a long time skateboarding wasn't as mainstream as it now is (with all the video games and such). it was seen as something that was radical and not well accepted (basically starting in the 1970s and 1980s) so it was somewhat synonymous with punk...

edit: oh yeah and it would be kickass if the name was "Mike V. attacked by Rats"

There pretty good. I could stand to listen to 'em.

And yes, skateboarding and punk rock, go together like peanutbutter and jelly. Someone said skateboarding contains a jock mentality. I don't see it. I'm a skater, and most skaters are laid back and accepting (or they might just be stoned...lol).

^ while it might not seem like a jock mentality on the surface, there's still that idea of trying to "one up" each other with tricks. I dunno, it always bothered me. I'm more interested in building fun communities than competing with each other in ditches.

Skating has really gone downhill since it's gone mainstream. Things like Bam, thps's, and Pac Sun have just totally ruined it. I think it's pretty bad ass that Mike V. is trying to keep it together through music.

It took me a few listens to appreciate the musical aspect though. Their lyrics are pretty generic and poorly written, but the actual music makes up for it and I got used to it pretty fast lol.
