It's hard to know just how to take Jackass: The Movie. It's not exactly stupid — who else would have thought of releasing a movie that's pretty much exactly the same as the TV show it's based on? Cynical might be a better word. Or even inspired — as long as your definition of inspiration includes shoving a toy car in your rear end. Jackass: The Movie (the DVD) throws in thirty minutes of new stunts. In one, "Pocket Ass Return," Johnny Knoxville tries to return a gay-sex toy that he says gave him a "mid-shaft gash."

    “American Girl”

    Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

    It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
