Devo: Don’t Roof Rack Me, Bro! (Seamus Unleashed)
Rolling Stone has the data: Song Premiere: Devo, ‘Don’t Roof Rack Me, Bro (Seamus Unleashed)’.
Devo’s Jerry Casale wants it to be known that their newest song, “Don’t Roof Rack Me, Bro,” isn’t meant as a partisan statement – even though it viciously mocks Mitt Romney for strapping his Irish Setter, Seamus, to the roof of his car for a 1983 family vacation.
“This isn’t a red-state thing or Devo stumping for Obama,” he says. “But I think any animal lover that hears the story will learn so much about the character flaw of Romney. It’s just a deal-breaker about the man. My God, the world is a scary place with seven billion people. What you want in a leader is a guy with some humanity at his core. I just don’t feel that Mitt does.”
Ry Cooder actually had a song about Seamus first, featured here last week:
