    Yeah, I've seen/heard about this...and the Mickey Mouse Club covering Devo ain't doing it for me.

    Having kids singing “Jerkin Back N Forth”, “Uncontrollable Urge”, and “That’s Good”? “With That’s Good” the lyrics sound innocent enough but if you ever saw the original video there is no doubt what they are talking about.

    I guess in a way it is sort of DEVO in its design but still.

    Speaking of DEVO...were you aware of this Buzz?

    They're also available individually, with 5 interchangeable heads. There's a Sam Goody near me that has/had the box set. I should probably go snag one before they close that place.

    I heard about DEV2.0 thing... I dunno if I'd purchase it or listen to it purposefully though... The original was just too awesome to beat...:lol

    I'm not buying into it. I don't think you can assemble a cheap cover band and just call them version 2.0... and I'm not even a big Devo fan to start with.

    Stay tuned to Them Funny Robots to see just how aware of that I am :D 

    If you want the full band the Sam Goody set is cheaper then getting the individual figures with all the heads… Unless you want 4 extra heads of each guy. You also get an autographed picture with the box set.

    I just don't know what to think of this. It sounds like a terrible idea, but then I hear the DEVO guys are actually involved in it, so I don't know. It does seem kind of pointless. I let my kids listen to (some) DEVO. No reason for them to listen to the same stuff, only sung by kids. They'll just listen to the original songs.

    I saw a commercial for this and laughed and laughed and laughed until I could laugh no more.

    Maybe it's one big joke, making fun of Kidz Bop? That would actually make sense.

    DEVO producing a devolved version of themselves? Brilliant.

    That said, I wouldn't touch that thing with a 50-foot pole.

    I will probable get it just because I have just about every thing they have put out including there PC game and its sound track CD. To bad the band they created for that (The Smart Patrol) didn’t spin off into anything.
