This past Saturday, we stopped by the Backyard Bang, which stretched between Lincoln and Sherman on 12th. We noticed the riders all had headphones in, so being all about the music, we asked them what they were listening to during their respective drops, rail slides and whatnot in the scary-as-hell Scion Death Gap (note: Only one Scion was injured in the event with a broken windshield wiper, dented hood and scratched windshield). Click through to see what they said.
