Where did Let's Go come from?
« on: August 06, 2022, 12:01:54 AM »
It's the most annoying phrase in skateboarding and I wanna know who's to blame. Feel like I heard it from Foy first?

its just something people say?? People have been saying "lets go" out of excitement for decades. its in songs from the 80s. its just a phrase

Tom Brady says it a lot. There's even a commercial of him saying it repeatedly. MMA fighters and weightlifters and other broey dudes say it a lot. It's been around a long time but its current popularity comes from jock and meathead culture.

That would fit the kind of contest bro skater guys that popularised it as a roll away celebration like Foy, Zion, etc. Does the jah use it?

Now, we used to say we put on our tights to put on the world. So I don't think it tarnishes the image at all.

Ric Ocasek wrote it. Blame him.
Is it true?  Or did you read it on the slap message board?

It's just a greater culture thing that trickled down into skateboarding

My guess is from people wanting to go


Mike V was the first one I saw he even put it on his street plant merchandise

Yeah, Rancid are to blame and Tim Armstrong --- he invented "Let's go" and the idea of going

I think it must have come from wherever they are wanting to go to.

Pretty sure Brady made it popular.
