The 1980s don’t get enough credit. It was the decade that gave us kitschy American icons like waterbeds and Blockbuster, but one of the standouts would have to be MTV and all of the heavy metal sub-genres it championed. A lot of those are included here in Sully’s mix: hair metal, glam metal, pop metal — you name it.
Regardless of category and the garb associated with it, ’80s heavy metal had an undeniable style and ethos that made it special. Similarly, Sully is rising through the ranks on his own terms and doing it with the kind of style and attitude that at times feels lost in skateboarding today. Headbang to this mix next time you’re out skating, and peep some of our favorite Sully parts in Potluck and Play Dead.
