First off, some history: Satanic Surfers played a major part in the Swedish melodic punk explosion that took place in the mid nineties. Combining strong melodies and fast paced punk with both personal and political lyrics, the band soon reached audiences all over the world. Early influences include bands such as SNFU, RKL and The Misfits. The band was originally founded by Rodrigo and Erik in high school back in 1989 in Lund, Sweden. After having gone through the usual line-up changes during its formative years, their debut EP "Skate to Hell" was recorded in '93. After doing the first two pressings by themselves and selling more than 1,000 copies in a couple of months, the EP was re-released by Bad Taste Records in August '94, as the first Bad Taste release ever! However, by this time Burning Heart Records had shown interest in the band and the second EP "Keep Out" was released on BHR in September the same year.

Total plays on over the last 6 months
    Worn out words and platitudes, the more they talk the less we understand
    Shoved around in circles
    Like pieces of dirt while the oppressive forces alter back and forth
    Between left and right (x2)
    You went caught in the middle
    Worn Out Words  -  42,528 plays
    I have my opinions and I try to stick to them, call me childish if you want
    But I guess the concept of that depends on who sets the norm
    And if submitting to the expectations of our surrounding means growing up
    I'll try wholeheartedly to refuse and I hope you're wrong, you say I'm acting like a kid and one day I'll grow out of it
    There's clearly a difference on what we define as significant matters
    What Ever  -  46,660 plays
    So many times when I felt down
    You picked me off the ground
    And put me back on my feet
    Back on my feet
    I had a shoulder to lean on
    ...And the Cheese Fell Down  -  47,619 plays
    He used to be kind of a happy guy
    Then one day he said goodbye
    To the person he used to be
    And grew wings to set himself free
    He flew away from all of us
    Hero of Our Time  -  58,603 plays
    I have a friend who's only joy in life
    is to skate, surf and flog his log
    That is all he wants to do
    and I think that's really great.
    But one day he had an accident
