DEVO always loved to stir up controversy and consequently they were accused of being “Clowns” and “Neo-Fascist”. Oh, No! It’s DEVO. Is their attempt to sound like Neo-Fascist Clowns.
“Speed Racer” is a song with deeper undertones when compared to DEVO’s other works, but it does deal with social, economic, and political issues of the 80’s. There is also, like always, controversial lyrics.
