Devo 2.0

I was contacted a while ago by someone from Disney Records asking me “to promote Devo 2.0 and to expose new and old fans to their music”. First up: yes, I get email from Disney Records. When you’re done giggling, you may wonder: Who is Devo 2.0?

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.

“Say What?!”, indeed. More on Punk News

    Devo? I think much of Devo’s music is tip-top. I recall reading a Zappa interview where he said he liked them too.
    BUT…!…This Disneyfied shit has GOT to GO!

    In the 90s, a similar kid cover band existed. They were called the 8-Teens, I think, and they did Abba covers. I believe they were sponsored by Disney as well. I think it’s really odd thet Devo are involved in this. Kind of a cut-rate version of that Rock School thing that plays Frank’s music, no?
    I wonder when a teenage version of Aerosmith will be put together. They can change the song to “Cheney’s Got A Gun”…….

    This is sacrilege on so many levels! I like Devo, so to see (and hear clips of) this makes me ill. What’s next? Oingo Boingo 2.0?

    The Backstreet Spuds?
    Devo probably digs sacrilege. Didn’t they make an album of Muzak-like covers of their own songs? I like the Devo records I’ve got, but the thought of Devo Muzak… has anyone here heard that album?
    Menudo remaking the “Freedom of Choice” album with a Mariachi band (a la Laibach’s Balkanized version of “Let It Be”) would be more worthy of Disney’s investment and would find a larger audience.
