Man, things are f’ed in Afghanistan. You know what they need over there? Yep. Skateboards. Exactly what I was thinking. Well fret not because Minneapolis punk act Mall’d to Death has created a music video as a promotional effort for Skateistan, a non-profit group that promotes skateboarding among youth in Afghanistan. You can check out the video here and visit Skateistan.com to see exactly how much of a difference skateboarding youths have made in the war-torn, impoverished nation.
Skateboards for Afghanistan is a song from the band’s upcoming debut LP Can’t Make a Living out June 15th on Geykido Comet Records.
