«skate punk» - best artists
Skate Punk is a subgenre of Punk Rock popular amongst skateboarders. It started in the 80’s, from the Nardcore punk scene in Oxnard, California. Both the subgenres tend to feature fast and aggressive songs, but Skate Punk tends to have more melody and harmonious vocals.
Many Skate Punk bands are skateboarders themselves. They make references to skateboarding (e.g., Millencolin, a Skate Punk band, its name deriving from “Melancholy,” an aerial skate trick).
The musical subgenre of Skate Punk is also known to some as “Skate Core.”
