I bet almost all of you over the age of 25 have played Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games. But did you know there was a similar PS2 game called Disney’s Extreme Skate Adventure, which featured Disney characters and scenes (Pizza Planet was by far the best level), as well as activities requiring the use of your character’s Nokia cell phone? In keeping with the Tony Hawk games they ripped off, the Disney skate game also had a top-notch alternative soundtrack featuring the musical talents of none other than Reel Big Fish, Smash Mouth, and Simple Plan, among others.
“Thirty Something,” the latest track from pop punk trio Eternal Boy, is a smash hit that would absolutely fit on the soundtrack of Disney’s Extreme Skate Adventure. It’s a kid friendly song that also appeals to nostalgic 2000s pop punk enthusiasts, like all of us here at Havoc. The music video even features themes of adolescent growth, with scenes depicting video games, Pokémon cards, an MCR poster, a Walkman, and the brightest drum set we have ever seen. Equipped with every element you'd want to hear in a Pop Punk tune, "Thirty Something" is a super catchy track that's hard to not leave on repeat.
Now we have to go play Disney Skate again and try to beat those impossible Nokia levels. For more fantastically fun music videos, art, and merch, make sure to follow Eternal Boy. We added this track to our Underground Punk playlist on Spotify. Check out the new music video below!
