The cloudy town of Hellview: Population 96

If you grew up skating in the late 90s and were young and stupid enough to be convinced that Bam Margera was the coolest human being alive, there’s a good chance you have some residual love for the band CKY. Regardless of how obnoxious Bam and his gigantic, all-seeing mole have become, his brother’s band really does kick some pretty decent ass.

Nonetheless, none of their songs really received any kind of mainstream attention aside from inclusion in video parts and Jackass episodes. So when I heard CKY’s menacingly catchy “96 Quite Bitter Beings” mashed up with HOV, I was all like icon eek The cloudy town of Hellview: Population 96

The fact that the song also contains samples from Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles” and the fucking Jackson 5 and still somehow didn’t turn into a complete trainwreck is truly awe-inspiring.

Look, haven’t you heard — being green is the new hotness. Recycling’s where it’s at, homie. And considering the utter trash that most pop music today is, I honestly can’t think of a better use for it than to splice it all together like some horror film science experiment until it’s greater than the sum of its parts.
