Devo 2.0. Not a joke.

Posted by on February 9 at 13:25 PM

We just got this e-mail telling us all about Walt Disney Records’ new project, Devo 2.0.

Partnering with one of the 80’s most innovative and iconic bands, Devo, Devo 2.0 is a group of five talented kids that have re-recorded ten of Devo’s original songs, and added new energy. The original members of Devo played on the album and are very much involved and supportive of the project, which allowing them to pass the timeless music of Devo onto a new generation.

I just threw up in my mouth a little bit…

Yeah, I just found out about this myself the other day. You can see pics of the cute little tykes (and hear samples) at

I was a little disturbed at first, but I think Devo's laughing all the way to the bank on this one. If it gets little kids into Devo, then I'm all for it, as ludicrous as it is.

How exactly are they gonna work with the "Whip It"? With the, ahem, undertones and all...

Wait until you see the entire DVD. Regardless, beneath the candy-coating, it's pretty subversive. But definitely not for grown-ups.

I think the Residents have been doing that for years. I heard they were grooming their kids to continue with the band and since they always appear in costume, nobody would know when the original group had retired and the next generation had taken over.

Well, look at it this way: It's theoretically impossible for a band to sell out when half of its members used to have jobs in the advertising industry.
