DEVO! Sings about dogs! And politics! "Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro."

"Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro" (Seamus Unleashed) takes the whole Mitt Romney strapping his dog to the roof of his car to a whole new 80s pop cultural level of awesome. 

According to Rolling Stone

Devo's Jerry Casale wants it to be known that their newest song, "Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro," isn't meant as a partisan statement – even though it viciously mocks Mitt Romney for strapping his Irish Setter, Seamus, to the roof of his car for a 1983 family vacation.

"This isn't a red-state thing or Devo stumping for Obama," he says. "But I think any animal lover that hears the story will learn so much about the character flaw of Romney. It's just a deal-breaker about the man. My God, the world is a scary place with seven billion people. What you want in a leader is a guy with some humanity at his core. I just don't feel that Mitt does."
