One chromosome too many

Devo tend to be sadly overlooked by journalists attempting to write popular music history. Which is weird. But there you go, and what I give you here is "Mongoloid", which by the way was a personal hymn of mine about 1,5 years ago. (SO MUCH TIME PASSED ALREADY?! What the hell?) Plus cover versions by psychobilly maniacs Demented Are Go! and Popchor Berlin (site's in German only) - the latter really gives the whole thing an apocalyptic touch. Plus be sure to go to Music for Maniacs and download Popchor Berlin's non-a capella cover. Plus the French cover band Nouvelle Vague with their version which I do not like at all, as I dislike Nouvelle Vague (I just don't get what is supposed to be so great or even funny about them), but since there has been a special request, here you go.
