Devo -- (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction

Traffic sucks, so why not start your morning off with some music? You provide the toast and we’ll provide the jams.


If you think about it, it’s pretty incredible that this cover exists as it does, and that it got as popular as it is. A song originally sung by Mick Jagger, then covered by a pack of cyborg-like nerds in radiation suits.

Ours is a glorious world.

This song tops my “covers better than the originals” list. How many times did Mick Jagger ever pretend not to get satisfaction? 

Any member of DEVO on the other hand. This song was practically made for them to cover.

I’m patiently waiting for my Recombo DNA vinyl to arrive in the mail.
