It doesn’t surprise me that Demented Are Go would do a DEVO cover. Nor does it surprise me that they did “Mongoloid,” the now-barred term for someone of low-intelligence. Considering the mutant rock that comprises Demented Are Go, it seems like a fits-like-hand-in-glove territory. Fun music for the whole family.
Personally, I like the frenetic version of the DAG cover. The DEVO version always hit me as a statement on the devolving nature of conformity. The DAG version almost celebrates the titular Mongoloid while the DEVO version almost uses it as a warning that the system will undo any kind of progress. Or not. Which one do you like?
