Tony Hawk and Goldfinger Perform Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Soundtrack Staple “Superman”: Watch

What’s better than playing Tony Hawk Pro Skater? How about Goldfinger brought out Tony Hawk to perform “Superman,” their standout single that appeared on the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater video game soundtrack.

The skateboarding legend joined the veteran ska band on-stage at their show in Anaheim, California on January 14th, and was introduced by Goldfinger frontman John Feldmann as “Mr. Tony Fucking Hawk”

 He kicked (flipped)  the rendition by asking the crowd “How are you?” before the band  launched into the track while Hawk, still gathering speed, casually added “I hope you know this song. Are you ready? Here we go.”

He also signed off with a challenge to the audience: “Do a kickflip!” Courtesy of Eric Girard, watch footage of the performance. 

Hawk’s recent collab with Goldfinger is not the first time he has taken a skate down memory lane with Pro Skater’s playlists in mind. Aside from “Superman,” he previously “covered” Millencolin’s “No Cigar,” featured on the soundtrack for 2000’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2, and starred in the accompanying music video, which recreated the retro graphics from the game’s early iterations.

“Superman” was also included on the 2020 remaster of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2.
