View Full Version : Devo

As part of a sweep of FOPP's £5 section at the weekend I picked up Hot Potatoes, the best of Devo.

It's great. I absolutely love it. I think Through Being Cool should be Counterglow's anthem.

We’re through being cool
Eliminate the ninnies and the twits
Going to bang some heads
Going to beat some butts
Time to show those evil spuds what’s what
If you live in a small town
You might meet a dozen or two
Young alien types who step out
And dare to declare
Spank the pank who try to drive you nuts
Time to clean some house
Be a man or a mouse
Waste those who make it tuff to get around
If you live in a big place
Many factions underground
Chase down mister hinky dink
So no trace can be found
Put the tape on erase
Rearrange a face
We always liked picasso anyway
Mash ’em

Through Being Cool's lyrics just seem almost perfect* for CG.

*Picasso instead of Van Gogh

I'm listening to 'are we not men' right now. It has the worst album cover in the history of bad album covers.

I like that Mark Mothersbaugh went on to write music for kids cartoons :)
