Lords Of Dogtown Soundtrack

There's an often-mentioned "useless" law that says it's illegal to ride a skateboard in a swimming pool in Malibu, California. Thanks to Lords of Dogtown, people will finally find out the law was passed because kids were looking for something to do during a record drought. City councils throughout Southern California had taken necessary water conservation measures, and the first thing to go was filling swimming pools. What to do, when the teens' hangouts were suddenly nothing more than concrete holes in the ground?

And so, Extreme Skateboarding was born. The rest is history.

The album opens with "Death or Glory," the great Clash tune, performed by Social Distortion. Their sound is as raw as ever. Mike Ness sounds rough, ready and ragged, his voice never smoothing at any age. There's no better bar band than Social Distortion -- and no bar band ever sounded so bigger than life.

Joe Walsh has made a career of great rock guitar riffs and "Turn to Stone" was always one of his best. The guitar sounds on this song were pretty rough to begin with and it's hard not to believe they were created with AM radio in mind. On the best or worst stereo, it always sounds about the same. That's its own strange genius, and there was no genius stranger than Joe Walsh.

Often overlooked but still deeply missed, T. Rex's Marc Bolan put the rock in glam rock. "20th Century Boy" is one of his most righteously rowdy, even though "Get it On" gets all the airplay. The riffs are still cutting edge and still compelling, 30 years after his untimely death in a car crash.

But the king of glam rock was always (Bolan's friend) David Bowie. "Suffragette City" has all the slam and boogie, and vampy charm of the times in which it was released. The Ziggy Stardust album had instructions "to be played at maximum volume" listed in the liner notes, and that's still the best way.

It's a fun little trip down memory lane, whatever town you may have grown up in. Extreme skating is big business now, but Lords of Dogtown is a fond reminder of the salad days of the sport.
