We will commoditise your dissent and sell it back to … your kids. by Simon Sharwood

Disney has resurrected DEVO … as a band for kids.

Check it out here.

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at this group of energy dome-wearing tweens performing note-for-note covers of DEVO songs and playing their instruments very unconvincingly in the online videos. And the lyrics have been sanitised. “Jerkin’ Back and Forth” appears devoid of onanistic allusion!
This is some kind of completely weird phenomenon which, at first glance, offends me on so many levels that I really cannot analyse it in any meaningful way and wonder if I will ever be able to.

I hope DEVO got paid a truly awesome amount of cash to let this happen.
