Dogtown Sounds

(press release) In a skater boy's dream come true, the true story of skateboarding legends the Z-Boys comes to the big screen with the TriStar Picture's release "Lords of Dogtown." As accompaniment to the gripping story is the Geffen Records soundtrack CD, which boasts classic songs by artists like Jimi Hendrix, Deep Purple, David Bowie, Ted Nugent, the Allman Brothers, T Rex, plus new recordings by Social Distortion and Rise Against. The CD drops May 24th, while the film opens nationwide June 3rd. The lead track, a Social Distortion cover of the Clash's 1979 classic, "Death or Glory," impacts radio on May 3rd.

Rock 'n' roll has always been a huge factor in skater culture, and the new CD reflects that, old school style. In addition to the Social Distortion track, Geffen band Rise Against also contributes a cover of Black Flag's blistering punk anthem, "Nervous Breakdown."[see full story for more] - Click here for the Full Story
