Closing out Round 5 and the semifinals, Jab Jab Suckerpunch brought a 200-proof blast of pure, hedonistic rock 'n' roll to the crowd. The band's sound could be described as The Jesus Lizard by way of Motorhead by way of an aural curbstomping. It's hard to convey how punishingly loud the band was, but rest assured, many ears were still ringing the next morning.
