Music recommendation - Millencolin.



Most of you guys have probably heard of this band before, be it by playing Tony Hawk or just growing up on punk music in the 90s.

I am of course talking about Millencolin. A pioneer in modern punk. Combining skate punk with pop.
Formed in 1992, this band has released 7 studio albums and 1 complication album.
The band name is derived from a skateboard trick called Melancholy.
Shortly after the band gained success, they made an annual skateboarding competition called the Millencolin Open in Örebro, Sweden.

The band consists of:

Nikola Sarcevic - bass, lead vocals
Mathias färm - guitar, backing vocals
Erik Ohlsson - guitar, backing vocals
Fredrik Larzon - drums

Recommended albums: Life on a Plate, Some Old Tunes, Pennybridge Pioneers, Kingwood and Machine 15.

  20. It's been a while since I've heard a song like this. The music brings me back to my younger years with the old PsX sports games. I can't really say I prefer it, though.
