Parts that made you buy the album

Never really heard a Ted Nugent song before this and after the DC video came out I bought his greatest hits album. Don’t think I care for any other song on the album but I still listen to Stormtroopin’ and get pumped to skate.

Almost every album I bought as a teenager was because of a skate vid...

Some notable ones include:
- 20 shot sequence - 101 / kook g rap - killer cuts
- Da deal is dead / Curtis mayfield - superfly
- Debbie does blockhead / black sheep - counting black sheep
- Virtual reality - Carrol / casual - fear itself
- Tim n Henry - Sanch / black sabbath

The list goes on....

I didnt buy the album but Mikey Taylor's song in Skate More got me really hyped to find that song and download it. Thats the first song I remember really sticking with me

As said above, most of my music influence as a teen came from skate videos. One major one for me that I can instantly remember off top was RJD2 - Ghostrwiter (Deadringer album) from Wenning and O'connor's part in Mosaic.

Herman's part in Baker 3 made me buy The Man Who Sold The World; MJ's Pretty Sweet part made me buy Ziggy Stardust. I thank skateboarding for introducing me to my favorite artist of all time.

Also, Dustin Dollin in Let's Live skating to Mercy Seat made me buy Tender Prey.
This thread makes me feel like I just came across two Juggalos fucking in an alley.

Steve Berra’s part ! I couldn’t agree more . I’ve become so obsessed with anything Jason Molina related .

I bought the King Crimson album because I really liked the song in the intro to That's Life.

I did not expect that every other song on that album would be a snoozer compared to 21st Century Schizoid Man.
if post- retirement duke nukem bagged that azz i have a chance too

There are probably more, but these few come to mind:

Hsu "Bag of Suck" - Cass McCombs "Sacred Heart"

Blake Norris "Julia" Part - Narrow Head "Cool in Motion"

Glue "Smut" - Biohazard "Scarred For Life"

Melodi "Bug Collection" - Pavement "In The Mouth a Desert"

Melodi "Passing Through" - Krutch "All Against Me"

KRod in Hockey "Dancing on Thin Ice" - Type O Negative "Drunk in Paris"

Servold in Emerica "Green" - Fuzz "One"

$lave "Radio Silence" - Killing Joke "Primitive"

Dustin Henry in Lotties x Vans "On God" - The Sundays "Goodbye"

Most parts from This is Skateboarding or Kids in Emerica made me get out there at 11-12 y.o. and find any record shop around. Hope I can spend the rest of my life without hearing Explosions in the Sky ever again lol. Even thight pants made sense after looking up who's Jimi Hendrix or Roxy Music back then ;D  I miss only having the option to skip a part (flip a record) rather than insta clips/part by part releases. Each new vid had at least a song that would make the whole thing so on point and brings you back just for the Vibes it made you Know. Fuck a last part.. the best song/part combo was the climax.

Great thread! This is one that was in constant rotation for me, and I probably wouldn't have been hip to it if it weren't for Foundation (which has a pretty good track record for soundtracks):

Probably would have never been into the band Placebo without Appleyard. Granted, most of their music sucks. Agree with all of the Krautrock bands mentioned above in $lave Radio Television. CAN is awesome.

Yes. Love that song. The song in Daewon's part was sick too.

I was like 11 years old and all the music I listened to was shitty pop punk like NOFX, Green Day etc but Reese Forbes' part in Element World Tour made me buy several Dinosaur Jr albums and those worked as a gateway to a more mature taste in music. Also, Radiohead - Let Down in the outro of that very same video had a huge impact on me.

Other noteworthy mentions from those days:
The Roots - Things Fall Apart (Because 100 % Dundee was featured in the chaos section of 411VM #34)
The High & Mighty - Home Field Advantage (Same as above but in 411VM #36)
Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation (Teenage Riot was in the Florida section of Transmission 7)

I hate to admit it but seeing the neckless wonder (biebel) and jeron's part in pretty sweet made me check out that meek mill song.

Other than that... BA in Yeah Right! put me on to interpol.

I wonder how many people tried to get a copy of that Knife song in Jason Lee’s video days part but couldn’t find one? Couldn’t have been just me

Love these tracks. Such a good part.
Is it true?  Or did you read it on the slap message board?

I remember reading somewhere that it was never officially put out but maybe it was on cassette. The Cry (H Street) is apparently putting out music again

I bought the album, but only liked the song.

Also, thanks to happy medium I started listening to deer tick and okay.

Evan schiefelbines part in the blind video introduced me to ambulance Ltd. Really good album.

Maybe more of a true confessions thing, but my last 2 purchases on iTunes in 2008 were BoH's albums from Guy's part.

Pretty sure I just got the Interpol albums from Limewire or Kazaa
