* ItAmusedMe: The interviews with the band about Devo 2.0 strongly indicates that their main reasons for approving of the project was that they found the idea of Disney trying to sell kid-friendly versions too absolutely hilarious to pass on.

* TheMerch: They have been called the "thinking man's Music/{{KISS}}" partly for this reason. Much of their live gear was made available through Club Devo, and their vinyl albums often came with a catalogue.

* BlackComedyRape: The demo track "Shimmy Shake" features drunken vocals about the narrator's plans to rape a woman 'Nothing's gonna stop me from getting in your pants girl'. Despite having a very catchy tune, it's quite obvious why they didn't return to it.
