Jocko Homo, Devo - 1977

by Dick Mac

Devolution, de-evolution, or backward evolution is the notion that a species can change into a more "primitive" form. See, Devolution (biology).

Devo is an American band formed in 1973 consisting of members from Kent and Akron, Ohio. See, Devo

Jocko Homo: a straight jock who is so straight and so jock-like that he's obviously a neandertal and/or gay. Almost always from the suburbs. See, jocko homo

Excerpt of lyrics
Jocko Homo, by Devo:
They tell us that
We lost our tails
Evolving up
From little snails
I say it's all
Just wind in sails
Are we not men?
We are Devo!
Are we not men?

God made man
But he used the monkey to do it
Apes in the plan
We're all here to prove it
I can walk like an ape
Talk like an ape
Do what a monkey can do
God made man
But a monkey supplied the glue

Are we not men?
We are Devo!
