  • Lyrics
  • Although many of Weird Al's songs directly parody other songs, he also parodies song styles. This song is a parody of the Devo style. The video makes clear links to Devo costumes and videos. >>

  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxIn honor of this song, I went out and sold some wine before its time.
  • Matthew from Milford, Ma"And this victory will be the delicious mustard on that sandwich! The MUSTARD OF YOUR DOOM!!!"
  • Joshua from Chico, CaThis song was used in the old animated Transformers movie.
  • Ralph from Newton, MaThis is probably Al's best style piece. It captures Devo's style in both sound and lyrics. Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo says that that song came out when Devo was unable to recreate their own sound and he hates Al for being able to do them better than they could at that difficult time for the band.
  • Bob from Wheaton, Misince my stroke 8 years ago I can now understand Weird Al.
