Karen O – If You’re Gonna Be Dumb You Gotta Be Tough

Since it’s the 100th post and all today, I figured I’d double team it and go for a good ol’ DP - double post of course.

I know this has been out for a while, but I thought this would be a fitting backdrop for my weekend plans of getting together with some old friends for a foolhardy and reckless time. Naturally what better way to celebrate that than with the theme song for the Jackass 3D movie by Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

In another impressive solo turn, Karen O covers Roger Alan Wade’s “If You’re Gonna Be Dumb, You Gotta Be Tough.” It’s a fun little song with Karen O singing with a Southern twang, losing her shit at one point, and finishing things off with a rowdy bar room chorus. All in all, a fantastically fun song.

Also, be sure to check out the original which is actually written and sung by Johnny Knoxville’s cousin, Roger Alan Wade.
