Skateboarders have pretty diverse music tastes, but for a while many years ago, it seemed like everyone thought we were only interested in two genres: Rock or Rap. Thankfully, we have been growing away from those limiting molds, with videos like Pretty Sweet mixing it up with pretty diverse tracks, even if we weren’t huge fans of it. In this mix, Brian Anderson takes it a step further, throwing in Aphex Twin, Phil Collins and even a new Lady Gaga song for good measure. A bold move, and just one of the many many reasons Brian continues to be the best: he doesn’t let “skate law” or others dictate what he should or shouldn’t be doing.
