If you are not familiar with CKY, you most likely have unknowingly heard their music in the shock/stunt/skate videos Landspeed,CKY2K, CKY3, and on the television show "Jackass". Their involvement with the videos almost certainly happened due to the fact CKY's drummer Jess is the big brother of "Jackass" prankster and professional skater Bam Margera. Other that having their music in the videos, the ties between the band and the show are virtually non-existant. For being associated with such goofy antics on film, this is a band who takes their music very seriously - and it shows.

CKY incorporate elements of several styles of music and blend it into their own unique mix. While genre-bouncing isn't something new for a band to try, most efforts end up sounding pieced together and unnatural. This is not the case with CKY, however. Combining the riffage of Black Sabbath, the spacey effects and Moogs of electronic music, the groove of funk, and the and layers of guitar (a la Billy Corgan) CKY has made a sound distinctly their own.

From the opening riff of the song "Welcome to Hellview" it becomes instantly apparent that the band has created a sound not found anywhere else. The guitar has a distinct distortion tone that I just cannot put my finger on when describing. The vocals vary from to clear and strong to breathy and emotional, often within the same song. Thankfully, the singing never falls into the annoying nu-metal trappings of bands like Korn or Godsmack.

I am curious how a four-piece band is going to pull off all the layered guitars and keyboards in a live setting. Whether they use additional musicians, backing tapes, or just eliminate the parts altogether is a mystery to me. Their tour is hitting my town soon so I will just have to find out for myself.

This album is a definite progression from their previous work, both in song quality and level of production. The material sounds much cleaner and tigher than anything they've done in the past. Every song has a hook and a really natual flow. While their earlier major-label album "CKY: Volume 1" had two or three gems buried within its track list, "Infiltrate.Destroy.Rebuild" is solid from start to finish.

Not to say this is a perfect album, however. The album has some brief moments that become almost too poppy for its own good (the song "Plastic Plan" comes to mind). Another shortcoming is the album's length. With only 10 songs clocking in at a little over half an hour, I was left feeling like there needed to be more to the disk. This is not necessarily a bad thing though, I would rather have 10 tracks of quality material than a dozen with a couple being fodder not even suitable for B-sides.

I purchased this disk for under 10 bucks and it undoubtedly is worth the money. If you are interested in trying something a little different than the current wave of screamo-emo clones, give CKY a listen.

Really well written review, although I'm kinda confused by the rating given how much praise you had for it. Personally I give it a 4.5 out of 5 as it's really awesome music, but not quite my style.

Kaitlin (March 2, 2007)

I definantly agree with you! CKY rocks. I also had a few of my friends listen to their music and they love them now! one of my best friends said that this band has inspired her to start a band of her own and so she has! I cant wait till a concert rolls in to town here i will most definantly be one of the first ones to get a ticket!

This is probably my favorite album, every song has its own unique sound. Deon Miller, is an amazing guitarist and a great vocalist. I've met the whole band and even though they're on a major label they still work their own merch booth and have never sold out. For some reason though, my brother hates them and I dragged him to one of their shows and he loved it...
This album is amazing, if you don't know what cd to buy sometime give this a shot. CKY has a very unique sound. Either you love 'em or hate 'em.

Some of the shit you guys say is seriously pathetic (see also WussEmoRock's idiot posts below). Are you this fucking stupid in real life? Just trying to get a rise out of people over the Internet? It's hard to tell.

"Every skater in the world...", you stupid shit fuck I skateboard and I have been for a long while. I have never heard cky off the cky videos, I could care less about them really. It's people like you who just come to your dumb fucking assumptions and reveal something so far from the truth. I have a bunch of people I skate with and none of us listen to cky.

I thought the review was above average. I dont agree with all of it, but, its not bad.

This album is by far the best album ive ever bought. Every song is good. Every song is different. And it all goes together smoothly.

And to all the people yelling "poser poser!!!" all i have to say is quit spending your time an energy analyzing and paying attention to all these labels - punk, skater, etc etc - No one needs labels. labels are stupid and very shallow. Create your own "look." why try to be someone and something that has already be done? be an individual. be yourself. refuse to acknowlege STUPID labels that were created by the media in order to persuade you into buying certain products.

By calling someone a "poser" you too are playing into the media's definition of what a certain "label" is. its like saying "that is not the correct definition of what a skater is!!! skaters dont wear that - they wear this!" And the fact that there is a LABEL for "punk" is an irony in itself. isnt the idea of punk that you dont conform to labels? yet you are labeling yourself????????? i dont get it. basically is labeling yourself as being non-label.....??????

the moral of the story... who gives a shit about labels. ignore them. ignore the tendency to label things. its old. its no longer needed. we are smarter than that. who cares what someone wears??? and trying to label music is a thing of the past too..... music needs to be DIFFERENT. if we can label music that means its something that has been done. we dont need something that has been done. There is one mona lisa. If someone came and made a replication of the mona lisa, would it be as valuable as the first? no. cuz ITS BEEN DONE!!!! if the artist would have made a million mona lisas, would ANY of them been valuable??? no! we only need one. thats whats so great about it..theres just one!!!! if someone else were to copy it and said "look at me im so cool!!! look what i made!!! im so talented!!!!" well no you are not. you stole someones idea. do something YOURSELF. sheesh!

alright dude if your going to write a fucking article about a band do some research and get it the fuck right! CKY the band came before the videos that bam made and if you ever seen any of them you would know that the band members appear throughout it and the first song is "Escape from Hellview" not "Welcome to Hellview" fucking dumbass, anyways i dont care if your a so called "poser" it doesnt matter what kind of gear you have or if your a sk8er,all that matters is if you listen to CKY,fuck i am girl and i listen to CKY, they are a great band and have a sound like no other! i wouldn't say that I.D.R. is the best album of our life time because CKYs next album i am sure will be just as great or even better! dont get me wrong I.D.R. truley is a masterpiece! and i am very proud of Deron, Chad, Jess,and Vern they have made it so far! And for all you scumfucks who claim to hate CKY or CKY is lame then why did you take time out of your precious life to read the article and make a post about how much you hate it? Grow the fuck up! nobody cares what you have to say! maybe you just wanted to get some attention,well here you go,or maybe you think its fucking funny pissing people off it doesn't matter what your intentions were i could give a fuck what little 12 years have to say!

as a member of the alliance i have to say, it makes me sad to see people take so much energy to argue back and forth over the validity of CKY. who cares who thinks what, if the only reason you listen to CKY is because of jackass or you saw them on mtv2 or something who cares? your listening to good music weather you knew them before mtv or not. im sure chad, deron, vern, and jess dont mind or even care that you think they are sell outs, they got your money. there the ones who won. if you hate CKY or you love CKY, dont let it be the reason you decide you "hate" these people... or your annoyed by these people. just listen to it because you love it. long live CKY and the alliance. and in case the band reads this, thanks for an excellent show, i'll remember it when im 90 and am wearing depends and married to some 24 year old.

you kiddos are being naive. i had sometime off from talking to my girlfriend so i read all the comments, and wow... waste_elite and wussemorock are actually on the same ground. me too. i call people fucking posers, so what? i call people posers to those who think blink 182 is the punkest shit out there. i frankly don't really give two flying shit if i'm a punk or not, but come on... labeling is the easiest thing to do out there, and we all label shit one way or the other. the difference is, there's some people who admit they label and have their own standard of what's "poser" and what's "4 reah", and there's this other people who pretend they don't label, but they're actually the "elit force" of punk. oh well, i hope you get the moral of the story friends. if you don't, feel free to blow your dad.

and errr, cky's music is weird. there are some songs i like, but that's about it.

"Some of you "punk" idiots not to judge you by your apperance yet you judge someone automatically because they're wearing a "hurley" shirt or whatever."

ok, so if i see someone walking around with a big fucking swastika on their shirt i shouldn't think they are a nazi because judging by appearances is soooo not punk. shut up. what you wear usually indicates something a little deeper.

i don't understand why people wear brands like hurley and atticus or anything else of the sort. you are paying money to be a walking billboard for them. you're a fucking tool and you don't even realize it.

that's what cracks me up about skaters these days. yeah, they are so rebellious and so anti-corporate yet they sport a million different corporate logos. and they pay out the ass for it too (have you seen a ccs a catalog lately?).

I love the way they combine metal, electronic, and funk into one amazing orgy of sound. While "Volume 1" had a few standouts, I-D-R has almost every song there a standout. "Flesh Into Gear" is a fuckin amazing song.

this cd is a wok of art. if you like good music, there is no reseon why you wouldn't like this band/cd. originality is pretty much the basis of this band. might not be punk but this definently rocks. i honestly have never heard a cKy song that was not kick ass. yeah, about the videos, they are named after the band. Word up alliance!!!

Don't they have a song on the Tony Hawk 3 soundtrack? It's the most annoying song on there and it fucking sucks.

I don't care about this band anymore. I have their first album on volcom entertainment signed by the entire band. Anyone think I could make any decent money on ebay for it?

"Other that having their music in the videos, the ties between the band and the show are virtually non-existant. For being associated with such goofy antics on film, this is a band who takes their music very seriously - and it shows."

Thats not true, not only is Jess on every cKy video there is also a cKy documentary included in the box set that has a huge part about the history of the band, all the memebers, and how they got big. Also, the lead singer of cKy appears in random skits throughout the films. Also the video for "Sinking Fast" includes your favorite cKy stars mingling with the band showing that that they are all actualy close friends who hang out and dick off together, not just the band that plays the soundtrack. Any way....cKy is the shit

The first song is called "Escape from Hellview", which is kind of like a sequel to "96 quite bitter beings" from their first record (which, by the way, wasn't a major label release, it was released by Volcom, and later distro'd by island/defjam).

Other than that, good review. CKY are one of the most original and exciting bands out there right now, and I'd like to see 'em go far.

"Allience, what??"
