Remember Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2? As a 14-year old kid interested in skateboarding, videogames, and pop punk, this was pretty much it. This game was my introduction to a number of great artists including Millencolin, Consumed, and Lagwagon. My favorite track on the album was “May 16″ and I always try to make a silly point of listening to it today. My summer break after this game came out consisted almost exclusively of laughing at the ridiculous game physics, teaching myself punk songs on guitar, and getting injured trying out tricks on a home made half pipe (with maybe two inches of actual vert). I hope it invokes the same kind of nostalgia in you that it does for me.

Lagwagon – “May 16″

THPS2 is pretty much the foundation of about 2/3rds of my entire musical history. As such, "May 16th" is my favorite Lagwagon song, too. AWESOME song!

Also...glad to know that I'm not the only one who makes it a point to listen to this song on this day every year :-P. Interestingly enough, last year May 16th actually fell on a Saturday.

What Masochist says, but apply it to me :)

However, this year was the first year where I forgot all about playing "May 16" on May 16th. Every spring I look forward to playing this song on that date and this year was no different and then Sunday came and went and I forgot. Bummer. Oh well, I'll play both album and live versions right........now!

Thanks for bringing this up. Good to know I'm not the only who feels the same about this song and this game.
