Hear Karen O's Song From The Jackass 3D Soundtrack image
Satirical country singer/songwriter Roger Alan Wade's music has been featured in the previous two Jackass films, both because his songs kind of fit with the rough-and-tumble style of the two movies and because Johnny Knoxville is his cousin, and well, you stick with your family when they're that talented. For Jackass 3D Knoxville is keeping his cousin involved, but has brought in a voice you might not expect to cover Wade's most apt song. Karen O, frontwoman for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and indie darling, has covered "If You're Gonna Be Dumb, You Gotta Be Tough" for the movie's soundtrack, and you can listen to the track below.

It's seriously delightful, especially with the memory of Karen O's haunting, nostalgic work for the Where The Wild Things Are soundtrack still fresh. The connection here, believe it or not, is Spike Jonze, who has produced all three movies and clearly has plenty of affection for his MTV roots. Just listen to the track below-- and stick the whole way through to hear the Jackass guys join in at the end-- and try to wipe that smile off your face.
