While people were going nuts over the Jackass TV series, kids with any sort of gumption were discovering that CKY (Camp Kill Yourself), a band featuring head ‘Ass Bam Margera’s brother Jess on drums, scored many of the show’s segments. The band also appears on the CKY videos and DVDs that Bam released before Jackass hit the air; a scene in which a pro skater defecates on the face of his slumbering peer is considered a classic by fans of this stuff. But behind the stunts and pranks lies a technically amazing band that makes intelligent heavy music. Too punk for one and too metal for the other, CKY would seem out of place at Ozzfest or on a hardcore bill, but its appearance would likely be the best thing to happen at either show.
