I first "met" Mark through that skit on YGG. I have since come to appreciate his life work immensely. He also did the music for Thor Ragnorok and the theme to Rugrats.

Devo mean a lot to me, I'm glad he's getting better.

I read a story early in the pandemic about how much it sucks being on a ventilator in that you go through a lot of delusions and paranoia.  Story checks out.

He was Devo.  D-E-V-O.

He also does the music for What We Do in the Shadows which has an amazing opening credit sequence.

I saw them live at a charity festival, it was amazing even though Mark lost his voice halfway through. They played on, and put on an awesome show.

Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou has one of my favorite Mothersbaugh scores. And his Lego Movie scores are not only great, but the movies themselves are great thanks to Mark encouraging the studio to get Lord and Miller to direct.

Yeah I don't know what it is exactly, but "Let Me Tell You About My Boat" is just phenomenal.

I love DEVO. Glad he's recovered.

He is 70?

Man, I feel old.

There are two black Devo fans. I am one. The other is a guy who played for Zappa. WE ARE RABID.

Also, old as F.

I like the absurdity of the ice cream.

Yes, all of us DEVO fans are indeed old.  I was in highschool in when Q: Are we not Men? A: We are DEVO! was released.

Long time spud here. Freedom of Choice was my first vinyl purchase. One of my favorite Devo memories was the cat listening party (All hail King Orange!), they had for the Something for Everybody release. I sat and watched the whole thing with my 5 (now 15) year old Devo loving daughter.

I met the boys during a meet and greet a few years later and thanked Mark for all the happy memories with my daughter (Yo Gabba Gabba and all the other kid stuff) including the cat party. He laughed at the mention of King Orange.

They need one more tour so my kid can experience Devo live! Get well soon!!!

I've loved Devo forever and always will. I could never get anyone else to dig them with me. Except my kids (23 and 18). They love Devo too. A small parental success I think.

The perfect blend of catchy and nihilism.

Devo was brilliant and Mark is a legit musical genius. I love pretty much everything he does and his work is everywhere.
