"(i Can't Get No) Satisfaction" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get me no satisfaction
And I try and I try and I try t-t-t-t-try try
I can't get no I can't get me no
When I'm riding in my car
And a man comes on the radio
He's tellin' me more and more
About some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination
I can't get no uh no no no
Hey hey hey that's what I say
I can't get no satisfaction
I can't get me no girly action
When I'm watchin' my TV
And a man comes on to tell me
How white my shirts could me
But he can't be a man 'cause he does not smoke
The same cigarettes as me
And when I'm flying around the world
And I'm doin' this and I'm tryin' do that
And I'm trying to make some girl
Tells me baby better come back later next week
Can't you see I'm on a losing streak

    General CommentThis song serves to explain, without explaining in plain language, what Devo is. They took a song, a legendary rock song, and broke it down into a basic, quirky skeleton of a song, thereby "de-evolving" it, and creating something totally new and somewhat disturbing. That's Devo.

    General CommentBRILLIANT!

    a great cover of a great song... this is how covers are supposed to be done. what makes this awesome is that DEVO has taken an already popular song and really made it their own. otherwise what would be the point? I don't even feel like i'm listening to a cover as this is DEVO through and through.

    General CommentThis is the trippiest Rolling Stones cover ever. Devo made it sound really weird, but it works. Yay for Devo.
