The Disneyfication of Devo: DEV2.O

This is just too horrifying for words--four teenage kids doing Devo covers, with the blessing of the band.
"I'm honored to be the new Mark Mothersbaugh!" declared Nicole!
says a press release. But I guess it is just the next step in devolution...

They don't do "Mongoloid."

Something tells me they don't do Soo Bawls or I Need a Chick, either.

We are DEVO!

And worst of all they changed "She's just a girl..." to "He's just a boy, he's just a boy.. a boy you like"

So it's not just kids covering Devo, it's teenyboppers covering Devo.

Actually, worse still is that the musicians on the recording are the real Devo... the kids aren't playing the instruments.

And worse yet--this was given to me as a gift for my birthday!

This is the real truth about de-evolution!
