Karen O "If You're Gonna Be Dumb, You Gotta Be Tough"
Published Oct 06, 2010Despite its mixed reviews, one thing everyone could agree on was the fact that Where the Wild Things Are had an amazing soundtrack, courtesy of Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O. As such, our anticipation was piqued when we heard that she would be contributing to the Jackass 3D soundtrack.
Rather than continue down the kid-friendly twee route, however, O has chosen to cover country singer Roger Alan Wade's "If You're Gonna Be Dumb, You Gotta Be Tough." The track is built around a straightforward acoustic guitar, but towards the end, it gets exciting with some giggling, some background noise and, best of all, some epic group vocals.
