Lagwagon is one of skatepunk’s most defining bands, and ever since the release of their song “May 16” on the album “Let’s Talk About Feelings” back in 1998, the date has commonly been referred to as Lagwagon Day or International Skatepunk Day.
This year, in honor of Lagwagon day, Korean pop-punk band WinningShot released a music video for their new cover of the skatepunk classic. It’s a great new take on an old song, and the addition of female backing vocals throughout the verses really adds a lot. The recording will be featured as one of WinningShot’s two tracks on the upcoming Korean punk compilation “Them & Us 3: Korea’s Punks at Binary Studios” but the band just couldn’t let the date pass them by without releasing the song for everyone to enjoy.
WinningShot recently released their split 7-inch with Seattle, Washington, US punk band Kids On Fire, and is heading into the studio next week to start recording their long-awaited first full-length album.
