Mood Music: Devo, ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’

‘Baby baby baby baby baby baby…’

Devo first recorded and released their Rolling Stone’s cover song, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” in the summer of 1977. The band’s version of the angst-ridden song really gained traction when they re-recorded it for their debut L.P., Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!, and performed a live version on TV’s Saturday Night Live in October of 1978.

I can remember seeing Devo for the first time on SNL and having my little 11-year-old mind blown. There was a buzz around school the next day of the “Did you see that weird band last night?” variety. I had, and I became a huge fan. Enjoy the official video below.
