In 1996, they decided to start another band, oiL, with a friend they had met through their jobs at UPS, Ryan Bruni. The band recorded a number of demos, many of which featured tracks that would eventually become CKY songs. After a short while, Deron and Jess were ready to record Volume 1, largely without Bruni. It was at this point that Deron and Jess met Chad I Ginsburg, who was working as a producer. The first material he had heard was the "Disengage The Simulator" demo, and he immediately wanted to be part of the band, having left previous band Rudy + Blitz shortly before meeting Deron and Jess.

Deron changed the band's name to Camp Kill Yourself and decided to head in a new musical direction. In 1998, Jess's brother Bam Margera, a pro skateboarder, was featured on the Toy Machine film "Jump Off A Building" in a skit called "Bam's Park Footy". The Foreign Objects song "Genesis 12a" was featured in the skit, while in the credits there was contact info on how to get more CKY recordings.

When Bam Margera, fast growing in popularity, released a full-length video of similar antics through Landspeed Wheels called "Landspeed: cKy" in March 1999, he used CKY's music exclusively as the soundtrack. The band's first albums "Camp Kill Yourself: Volumes 1 and 2" were released on Teil Martin International to coincide with the videos.


The band embarked on the 1999 Warped Tour and played on the Volcom stage. During this tour, Ryan Bruni, the live bassist, left the band before a CKY performance, leading Ginsburg to play bass until Vern Zaborowski was recruited for the 2000 Warped Tour.

Volume 1 was released again in December. In 2001, CKY signed to major label Island Records, where they re-released a remastered and enhanced version of Volume 1. In September 2002, after being delayed by Island Records, the follow up album, Infiltrate•Destroy•Rebuild (IDR) was released.

All of the videos were directed by Bam Margera. In July 2004, the live bassist, Vern Zaborowski, and CKY parted ways due to personal and performance reasons.

CKY's songs have also been featured on the popular MTV show Jackass (which prominently featured good ol' Bam), and in 2001, both volumes of Camp Kill Yourself were reissued, just as the group was signed to Def Jam/Island.
Zaborowski exited the band in mid-2004 during sessions for their third album and (as what happened when Bruni left earlier) Ginsburg handled bass until a replacement was found.
CKY returned in June 2005 with An Answer Can Be Found, unflagging in their self-promotional swagger -- Miller spent much of the run-up to the record posting Internet messages about his band's total awesomeness.
