SKATE lines up a killer soundtrack

Ramones, Nirvana, Bowie, White Stripes...

If you're big into skateboarding, chances are you're big into music, which is why games based around gravity defying trickery and high speed self-propulsion on a bit of wheel-enhanced wood generally boast the best soundtracks this side of GTA. And newcomer to the spot - the incoming Skate - promises to carry on the tradition of killer soundtracks in spectacular, ear-pleasing style. Check out the play list below to see what musical treats are in store.

There are 45 songs in total, with a further 18 exclusive tracks from various 'world renowned' DJs, as well as skateboarding hero/guitar dude, Tommy Guerrero, also promised. Nice.

I don't have the energy to really hate anything properly. Most things I think are OK or inoffensively average. I do love quite a lot of stuff as well, though.
