Whatever you may think of the JACKASS phenomenon, be it good, crazy, all-American fun or social Darwinism at its most base, this soundtrack at least provides the opportunity to hear the Rezillos once again conjure the spirit of punk rock with "Somebody's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In Tonight" and the Ramones try to meld the Beach Boys and New York punk with "California Sun." In other news, Swedish girlie rockers the Sahara Hotnights show what the fuss is all about with their "Alright, Alright (Here's My Fist Where's the Fight?)" and The Misfits do what they do best--rock like there's no tomorrow--on "Hybrid Moments."
Despite being divorced from the movie's undoubtedly hilariously harrowing visuals, the music still bumps and grinds in all the best places. And any album that manages to sequence Slayer's "Angel of Death" and Sir Mixalot's "Baby Got Back" together is obviously worthy of respect.
