“Now touring is your main income, and you really have to try and get licensing deals. Try and get in where you can on video games or whatever,” said Margera.

This prompted the show’s host to ask Margera about the band’s previous inclusion on the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series. Margera confirmed the band’s previous apppearance and stated that “we’re doing the new one coming out too”.

CKY’s previous appearance in the series dates back to 2001. The band’s song 96 Quite Bitter Beings was featured in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3.

Margera could be referring to a new entry, or a remaster of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 + 4. This is the most likely outcome considering CKY’s previous appearance in the series was in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 released last year, and marked a return to form for the series. NME Writer, Jordan Olomon reviewed the remaster last year, calling it “a magnificent remaster with a laser focus on all the right areas”.
