It depends. As far as I know, there are two main "branches" One is like the actual skate punk, which I can't say I've listened to. And there's the whole so cal thing. Bands like Bad Religion. But, I could be totally wrong on all of this.

casualties are not skate punk. i think skate punk is basically a few of the 80s hardcore and nardcore bands that appealed to skaters and often had members that skated. i believe there's a thread about it somewhere around here, probably on the second page.
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
Who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,
You fixed yourself, you said, "Well, never mind,
We are ugly, but we have the music."

Metal was started by bands like Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath in the early 70s; punk didn't exist until the late 70s. The early forms of both genres were in no way related.

The point of this post is:
1. Get your facts straight.
2. If you don't like punk don't post in a punk forum.
3. I don't know anything about skate punk. Try looking it up on allmusic.com

From Wikipedia:

"MC5 was a hard rock band formed in Lincoln Park, Michigan, U.S. in 1964"
"The Stooges are an American rock band that was first active from 1967 to 1974"


"Led Zeppelin were an English rock band that formed in September 1968"
"Black Sabbath formed in Aston (Birmingham), England in 1968"

If you want to get technical, Iggy and the Stooges, The MC5, and David Bowie all started in the 60's, and are considered by many to have started punk.

Cheers mate, but thats more dumbasses saying "I skate and listen to this band", rather than the actual sound.

I was kind of looking for the sound, the "All-Stars", if you will, of the actual genre.

I agree, that thread is complete sh!t.

Skate punk was started by Darby Crash and the people dumb enough to imitate him.



It was made popular by stupid movies like "Thrashin'".

I always saw "skate punk" as the upbeat pop-punk stuff that shows up in Tony Hawk videogames.
I'm the type of nigga that's built to last
If you fuck with me, I'll put my foot in your ass
See, I don't give a fuck cause I keep bailin

'Twas a tad more "thrashy" in its infancy.

Here's a bit of Agent Orange in an old Thrasher video to give you an idea.

Does anyone else miss the term "Gaylord?"

I mean, I know it is juvenile and it's not PC but seriously it's hilarious when you think about it.

I AM LORD OF GAYS!

I picture some dude on like a giant golden penis throne with a cape and scepter surrounded by gimps and man servants drinking from a jeweled golden goblet.

I miss 4th grade insults...

They cut so deep.
#29
The name Gaylord harkens back to an age when gay meant "happy".
The 1890s were known as the "Gay 90s."

Somewhere along the line, gay began to mean homosexual.
No one can pinpoint when this happened, but I'm blaming this guy.

Up north they said "gaybod" instead.

An amalgamation of gaylord and boderick, which is colloquial slang for a clever, obsequious schoolkid who always knows the right answer.

As for darby crash, sid clone, anyone?

I've never seen that much sydness in darby crash. I'm surprised.

Thank god, like his punk rock master, he's dead.

That's the fun part of punk rock:
Hating and berating people because they're such jackasses.

I honestly enjoy explaining to "normal" people why they suck.

It always comes as a shock to them that they're mindless, consumerist a$$clowns.

Hahahaha.

It's really bad.
It's "Class of 1984" meets "Fast Times at Ridgemont High", and not in a good way.

Plus, it's a cheesy rip-off of the movie "Foxes", starring Cherie Currie of the Runaways and Scott Baio of "Happy Days" and "Charles in Charge".
(Which also kinda sucked, but at least it had Cherie Currie in it).

It really ****ing bothers me when you guys say that skate punk is just "fa-s" trying to emulate Darby Crash. Darby Crash had nothing to do with skate punk, and if you actually meet people who are part of the skate punk scene and not the "Z0mG I sKaTe t0 tEh CaSuAlTiEZZzz" scene, you'll realize that there is no reason to have any disdain for them.

basically whatever skaters listen to. NOFX and Pennywise are big ones. Not all skate punk bands plan to be skate punk (rancid, Nofx, Dead Kennedys probably didnt) it just happens.
The Mitch Clem formula
1)make jokes about rancid and NOFX (as if they dont already make fun of themselves)
2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
4)??????
5)PROFIT (and an army of internet fanboys)

Gaylord was a great term. It just sounds so childish and ridiculous now.

And gay mans leg's, two poles with a sign connecting the top. If you walked through the gay man's legs you were a "****in' poofter!"


Ahhh, 9 year old homophobia.

Let's review, since you're obviously not very bright.

This is what a skater looked like in the late 1970s.
A long haired, stoner hippy surfber type ala Lords of Dogtown.


This is what Darby, one of the first 100 punks in LA and one of the first "skate punks" looked like in the late 70s.



I've met Duane Peters, Steve Caballero and Alan "Ollie" Gelfand and NONE of them were punks when they started skating.
Here's a pic of Duane by Glen Friedman from 1978.


The caption Glen wrote says it all.
DUANE PETERS still a long hair in 1978, when i took this shot at Marina Del Rey skatepark.

Duane and Steve got into the whole skate punk thing around 1979 or 80, when it took off thanks to Darby and the Germs and movies like "Foxes", which was one of the first films to have skateboarding in it.
