Devo - Snowball (Live)

With the recent unveiling of Devo's Disney project for kids Devo 2.0, I thought it was a good time to post a couple songs from Devo's Live 1980 album to reflect on just how good they were in their prime. This is a band that most people still see as nostalgic fluff from the 80's, without even knowing just how subversive and musically revolutionary they were. Of course, their songs were pretty catchy too. I have to wonder though how it will be possible to make songs like "Be Stiff" appropriate for children. There are probably more than a few classics that will be left off that Devo 2.0 track listing.
