Tony Hawk recently joined a Tony Hawk cover band called The 900 on stage in the UK, where they sang a few songs for a shocked audience, further demonstrating why he is such a good person. When Agent Orange’s Bloodstains, which was included in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4, emerged, Hawk and The 900 sang it at Signature Brew Haggerston. Hawk posted a video of the performance on Twitter. Bloodstains, according to Hawk, was a major influence on the music for his video game soundtracks.
From last night’s performance at @SignatureBrewE8, my / our version of Agent Orange’s Bloodstains,” Hawk wrote. This was one of the first punk songs I ever heard as a child, and it had a big influence on how the THPS game soundtracks were composed. I appreciate @The900Banduk calling me to the stage! Goldfinger’s Superman, which was included in the first Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and again in both Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, was also sung by Hawk and The 900.
In our review of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, we stated that it is the most recent installment in the enduring and adored skateboarding franchise “is such a huge improvement over Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 from 2015 that it’s hard to believe they even have a single gene in common. The levels are gorgeous and lovingly created homages to the past, the skating is approachable but challenging, and the music is like a warm embrace from an old childhood friend.”
