Devo started out as a willfully warped pseudo-punk outfit..... and wound up here? I'll bet they look back on this and laugh their asses off while they make a pretty penny off their numerous reunion tours (as well they should, because they're playing the old school tunes which rule me, rule you and rule your fatass mama, too).
So this is their last single before their breakup. It reminds me of the Vines' "Outtatheway" which isn't a bad thing, really. It's got the Devo flavor, albiet the latter-day-Devo flavor. And, sadly, it lacked the sharp, satirical edge of their earlier work which was still evident in this song, but "Mongoloid" it ain't.
Obviously, it's a shame one of the great satirical bands in rock had to end up with something this, well, devolved. But as a pop/rock song? It has its charms. And the video is amusing too. Go YouTube that shit.
Although as listening, the single itself is, like many singles with remixes, kind of redundant.
