Devo is set to release a new single called 'Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro! (Remember Seamus)' on August 25th through digital distributer The Orchard. While the title may not sound politically charged, the song is about Mitt Romney's 1983 road trip in which he strapped his dog to the roof of his car and drove from Massachusetts to Ontario. Do you like it when musicians get political or does it distract from their music?

SLICINGUPEYEBALLS.COM reports:
Devo is about to dip its collective toes into this year’s presidential race as the quirky New Wave survivors later this month will release a song called “Don’t Roof Rack, Me Bro! (Remember Seamus)”

    Kind of like when every country singer came out with some horrible right-wing, pro-war song back in 2003 to get us all happy about invading Iraq.

    He has repeatedly said it was FOR the troops, because he did not want another group of soldiers to come home and be treated like the Vietnam guys were. it was FOR the soldiers, not to pump up the war-which he disagreed with, BTW.

    What a stupid comment. Supporting our troops is not being anti a specific person.

    All they're doing is alienating half of their audience. Shut up and sing.

    I'd prefer musicians and movie stars shut the hell up and entertain us. That's what we pay them handsomely for. If I wanted their opinion I wouldn't ask for it.

    i disagree. movies and music are an expression of the person(s) behind them--some we might call artists. if a painting can express an emotion (philosophy) without words, a movie or song can enhance it.

    i dont know which music you listen to, but outside of the mainstream...musicians care more about expressing their thoughts into words than into being played on clear channel. It's desired, but not at a cost.

    OK, I will admit there are occasional exceptions. If a star can work his/her protest into his act, I'm fine with it. :-)

    I support DEVO's First Amendment right to express their views. I will also exercise my right not purchase this song or see them on tour.

    Why not? .... musicians, as well as other types of entertainers are as entitled to their political views/convictions as any other individual(s).

    I don't like it when it's negative, but they have every right to say what they want. If I don't agree with them, I delete them from my playlist and never buy or pirate any of their crap again! Ha!

    I didn't see a whole lot of difference between riding on the roof and riding in the back of a pickup. These people are trying to find anything to criticize Romney about and this is the best they can come up with.

    Was anyone supposed to understand a word of that? I can only assume he was anti-something.

    Well, if you don't listen to punk music that much, I can understand it being hard to understand, especially because I chose a live preformance. I'd say watch the lyric video.
