Song of the Day: '(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction' by Devo

Happened to see a special about new wave music on Axios the other night -- and it focused heavily on Devo, who were definitely pioneers of the genre. (This Rolling Stones cover always made me smile.) Having been a new wave geek since I was a teen, though, I must say I've met my share of Depeche Mode maniacs and obsessed Duranies. And I've met Lauper lunatics and fellow Blondies. I even knew sisters who were "saving" themselves for Nick Beggs of KajaGooGoo!. But  I've never come across someone whose favorite band was the boys from Akron. Leave me a comment if I'm wrong about this -- and some pointers are always welcome, too.

I saw them at the University of Houston back in the early 80's and that was one WILD show. Such a fun night. They got arrested after the show on stage. Cops went up and handcuffed them and hauled them away.
