A thirteen-track mix of some of today’s finest in punk, hip hop and modern rock – from SoCal Punk legends NOFX to the socially-charged Pennywise to MTV’s “Total Request Live” champions Sum 41 – Music From and Inspired by Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3’s tracks were inspired by Hawk’s own musical taste. “Since I’m such a big music fan, it seemed only natural to make a soundtrack based on the game,” says Tony Hawk. “Certain types of music are closely associated with skateboarding, and I wanted to represent that on a CD.”
