View Full Version : Wakeboarding Tunes

07-19-2012, 12:27 PM
Looking for some good jams to play when wakeboarding, not to be confused with just all-around boating songs.

I'm thinking Buckcherry's "Lit Up" would be a good one. Also just about any ACDC song, maybe "LaGRange" by ZZTop, and I will even throw in "I Gotta Feeling" by Black Eyed Peas. What do you guys think?

Anything Rage Against the Machine or Audioslave. :)

Ah, another wakeboarding music thread.

I have call me maybe/Barbie girl/give your heart a break/various assortments of Katie perry on repeat blasting through the rev's while riding. I'm the most hated person on the water. The Griggs crew knows this to be somewhat true

For real though, we own the sky/midnight city/young blood are my 3 fav songs to ride to

"5-1-5-0 - dierks bentley (warning-country)"
I have a hole country jam list, that ones on it along with Toby Kieth, Alan Jackson, etc, but usually stick to rock;

Arctic Monkeys, Dropkick Murphys, Rise Against, Cage the Elephant, Muse, for the newer stuff
A bunch of grunge, Metllica, etc for the 90s stuff
AC/DC, Sabbath, Hendrix, Stones, ZZ Top, etc for the classic stuff.

Not a single shout out for Low Rider by War. No other tune hits the mark when leaving the dock, barely afloat. I shouldn't even mention I Wanna be your Dog by The Stooges as you are not worthy!

Okay, a host of Beasties, Linkin Park, a few select Stones tunes, some current (Black Keys, Awolnation, etc), and, of course, Manfred Man's LP version of Blinded by the Light. Oh, just added Karen O's version of Immigrant Song.

Nope, no gayness allowed on my boat.

08-28-2012, 09:12 AM
Manfred Man's LP version of Blinded by the Light......

WOW, I thought I was the only one who new/liked Manfred Mann and Manfred Mann's Earth Band. My favorite is "Spirits In The Night"............ :D

If you lived through it, you must pay homage. In addition to above, Coconut and Stuck in the Middle are on the list. I have a small sampling from every decade I've been around, thus the list goes from the Stone's Street Fight'n Man to Korn.

Of course, "Sweet Emotion " is in the mix as well. If anyone here has "Evidently Chickentown" on their playlist (other than me), I'll eat my hat.

I enjoy the sound of a 351 ford myself.
