  • Lyrics
  • A halfpipe is a slang term for a skateboard ramp shaped in a downward arch. The song became a skater anthem in the UK.
  • The band's distinctive sound is a combination of hip-hop, punk and reggae. The success of the song led to their debut album Menace To Sobriety being re-issued, having flopped the year before. The band lost their record deal with Atlantic soon after.
  • The line, "If I Die Before I Wake, At Least In Heaven I Can Skate" outraged many Christian sects in the UK. >>
