Gotta laugh to keep from crying.

The music industry is a bee.

To get the full experience of what Devo is telling you here, I encourage you to track down Devo 2.0 videos on youtube.

Devo mocks the commercialisation process even as it mocks them. And they got a story about a near retarded Disney exec.

Win win.

You know all these years, since I was in fucking elementary school, I really DID think the song meant "life's a B" as in bitch.

Learn somethin' every day.

I remember when Bob 2 was the best looking one in the band.

Jesus, he might still be.

Can't wait for Rupert Murdoch to launch Devo 3.0!

I was working late night stock at Toys R Us when this album came out, and my lock-in manager was an Ohio native peer of these guys, who had spent many years working at a Sam Goody until getting caught subverting the sales of certain albums to certain demographics (convincing people not to buy country, for instance).

Anyway, this guy had zero work ethic and a chip on his shoulder, so one night we had a smoke-in and a record party in the back room with this album.

It eventually ended in the lot of us, the manager included, going on a shoplifting spree. He said "You've got twenty minutes until I turn the cameras back on" and away we went. It was like a Nickelodeon Toy Run, only with the insane Devo 2.0 weird corporate rewritten lyrics playing overhead and a very distinct pot haze over all of our collective choices.

maybe among the best work stories I've ever heard.

Should this story be on the internet?

Admit it, you're really Jesus.

Five points for the pre-load nose picking.

Also another five points because its their fault after all.

And another five points because for de-evolutionized peeps, they have nice ties.

And another five points because, well, Devo.

I heard they licensed "Whip It" to the Swiffer company for the sole reason that the new lyrics were even stupider than the original's, which struck the band as profound. Might be apocryphal, but that's how I imagine the Devo process.

I really, really, really love them for that.

They can blame Disney all they want for changing the lyrics but the bottom line is getting a bunch of kids to sing Devo songs is retarded to begin with.

I don't think you quite understand what Devo was hoping to accomplish here.
