27. Jackass

Aired: October 1, 2000 - February 17, 2002 (MTV)
Theme Song: Minutemen "Corona"

The choice of early '80s indie rock band Minutemen "Corona" for the Jackass intro makes sense given the track's slight country western feel that brings to mind some crazy rodeo in the middle of nowhere. Considering the program was about jaw-dropping (and ball breaking) stupid human tricks, the fact that the song is named after a cheap beer seems almost fitting, almost as if it's a drunken toast to the insane daredevils who do anything for a laugh. Ironically, however, “Corona” is not some party anthem encouraging ass clown behavior, but rather a socially conscious ballad about the poverty-stricken conditions in Mexico.
