Devo - Jocko Homo Lyrics

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?

We're pinheads now
We are not whole
We're pinheads all
Jocko Homo

Are we not men?
We are Devo
Are we not men?

Are we not pins?
We are Devo

Monkey men all in business suits
Teachers and critics all dance the poot

Are we not men?
We are Devo
Are we not men?

Are we not pins?
We are Devo
Are we not men?
[some versions include the following bridge: ]

I got a rhyme that comes in a riddle
What's round on the end and high in the middle?

Together now, God made man
But he used a 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
I can do what a monkey do
God made man
But a monkey supplied the glue

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

Are we not men?
We are Devo

We must repeat

We must repeat

We must repeat

We must repeat

We must repeat

We must repeat

We must repeat

We must repeat
Okay, let's go

  10. Guy Boost

    Happy New year 2020 !
    Great Intelligent DEVO fans !

  11. Terry Mcgee

    Here in 2020, we listen to loud rap about rape, killing cops and ranting about racism with autotune. Anybody notice how Mothersbaugh looks like Bill Nye here? Or that boogie boy is sorta kinda like the pip boy from fallout ?

  12. Maggie P

    if you switch the playback speed to 1.25x it increase the anxiety by 150%

  13. Nathaniel Edwards

    My Mom and Dad were fans of Devo among other bands when I was growing up in the 80's. My Mom had a Devo badge. WTF. :) They weren't fan music types so finding that badge....

  14. oxiigen

    I wonder if they saw Talking Heads ever before?

    Guy Boost

    DEVO helped David Byrne on
    His solo album the Song
    Wicked Doll !


    @Guy Boost wow! didn't know that, thank you. he reminded me on David's video performance..

    Guy Boost

    This video is from 1975...

  17. Trumpgotta GO ITMFA

    BEST VIDEO EVER!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Kb Anderson

    Love this! It’s crazy how Devo stood for devolution back in the 70s and 80s and it is even more evident today. Go to any Walmart and you can see how society and mankind has fallen by the wayside.

  19. ocumstweezers

    When MTV first came out and they lacked content, because there weren't music videos, they used DEVO as filler.
    They had no idea that DEVO would be the high water mark of Music Videos.

  20. dip dip potato chip

    This is shit

  21. TheBaioken

    Pink guy?

  22. David Moore

    We all are devo.

  23. Maestropheus Astronauticus

  24. DailyDoseOfCancer

    How did I end up here...

  25. Al Mojica,Jr.

    America's Kraftwerk. AMJ

  30. frontbum666

    This is why I'm 76 and still taking loads of psychedelic drugs

    Gëfägnïs Sïngäfëg

    What’s your favs I’m pretty much an acid head but everyone’s got their favorites


    Gëfägnïs Sïngäfëg
    Psilocybin, Dimethyltryptamine and absinthe.

    Gëfägnïs Sïngäfëg

    Nice man lots of people say shrooms are their favorite too. I figured an old timer like you would be more into acid but DMT is honestly better. Keep doing your thing👌

  31. Gregory Bolton

    nuff said - Bijou Grandpa

  32. RL R

    If I suddenly watched some crazy ass, dressed as Boogie Boy, running towards me, I would be scared shitless in a nanosecond.

  33. Incoming Hit da dirt

    I'm really scared....

  34. satinwhip

    An original founding member of Devo asked to be compensated for his part in creating the band. The band refused and sued him claiming he had no part in it. He proved in court that they were liars. They settled with him. Nice guys.

  35. John Chase

    Pure shit

  36. Gustavo Mezcala

    When I got my first mohawk in Orange County CA back in 79, everyone would yell out DEVO!

  37. Peoples KarmaSquad

    The Golden Age of Ohio

  38. RationalMindRiot

    what kind of music is this? DEVO what ? DEVO best videos ever

  39. Jason B.

    even more true today

  40. Stuart Jamieson

    class perfection

  41. Silent Cal

    this is awful

  42. lennie lurcher

    I was bought up on 60s rock, not the pop shite, this is exellent, I discovered them from the akron album. Hence the painted wall at the start. Superb

  43. gfcardi

    If only our Congress was like this! We. Would. RULE!

    Guy Boost

    Our Congress needs
    To be Committed
    We a New Government
    Learn from History
    Look what happened to
    Presdent John Kennedy
    Read the book
    They Killed Our Presdent
    By Jessie Ventura !
    We need a new Government !

  44. Gëfägnïs Sïngäfëg

    Probably the 15th or so time I have seen this and it still makes me disturbed yet oddly satisfied


    90% of the views are from me☺️😋 I like mr devos dancing skills 👨🏻‍🦲👊

  46. WootTootZoot

    Those were some pretty snappy dance moves

  47. Toughen Up, Fluffy

    If you think you understand Devo, you don't understand Devo. Not only is Devo strange to imagine, they're stranger than we can imagine.

  48. William ckemons


  49. trevor brown

    Mad as as a box of frogs and yet strangely brilliant. Love it! I bet at the time Devo really divided people

  50. Eric Beer

    So this is how Beck learned to dance!

  51. Ernie Miller

    An Amber Alert came through while I watched this video. Somehow, it fit.

  52. Mario Terranova

    DEVO The TRUE PIONEERS OF ROCKAND MUSIC Videos ahead of Their Time

  53. Ericramone78

    Why is the quality so terrible? I mean this is shit. The video and audio? The song is cool though of course

  54. The Real YahNation

    I bump this loud as fuck with headphones on smoking a fat bowl every once in a while.

  55. Taga Cale

    Too Much David Byrne on vocals

  56. • bruh

    That drill solo, is sampled from Stress

  57. eworldtraveler

    Suburban Lawns , rips almost as much as "Devo" .

  58. Freeway

    Interesting video with Mark

  59. David Schlotterback

    I don't see what the appeal is for these guys.. the song's not catchy, the music video unmemorable, not particularly good at their instruments. Influential? Absolutely. Good band? I will debate that until the end of time.. they're OK, but there were much cooler bands during the early 80s like Siouxsie and the Banshees and Blondie and shit..

    fern Haloo

    Try The Residents you jagoff.

  60. C S


  61. Monsecko

    lobotomy in audio form

  62. leyetnin1

    Let’s make sure this important message makes it on the next space rover.

    This song is out of control, in a very artist way....nothing comes close.

  64. kieron kjar

    I think the begining started Slipknot

  65. DirtyBoySingToGod

    Crumbs, i freakin love this too much. Perfect in every way, from start to finish.

  66. 3rd eYe

    I am a Truther and if you are still asleep you will never see the messages hidden in mainstream Music, DEVO are brilliant but they as many others tell a story especially in this track, now you can go back to your slumber......

  67. killer b

    my fav devo song by far

  68. MotoBrendo yeah

    How many people here know the singer is the artist from yo gabba gabba?

  69. Hermes The sarcastic motorrad

  70. Adam Walch

    Top ten 'videos' of all time

  71. Luis Martin

    Warner Bros. Records carried this? Amazing...

  72. irishguy13

    It begs the question: Are we not men?

  73. synthmalicious

    Didn’t Justice sample the beginning for Stress?


    JustOneGuy surprised me to say the least

  74. Freeway

    Video West, anyone?

  75. This Sucks

    Damn. That video and music is one of the most original you'll ever see.

  76. [ O s w a l d ]


  77. Wenceslao Futanaki

  80. James Lambe

    1976: Devo devolves 1. The first Harlem Shake video! 2. The source for David Byrne’s character in the Talking Heads Once in a Lifetime Video (1980/81)


    Been lovin Devo since hearing my older brother would blast them from his bedroom in the 70s but for some reason I keep thinkin of the rug rats theme in this lol. I know he did that too

  82. N.Z. Storm Waver

    Lol my Dog lifted his head when he heard the music in the beginning lol


    So did mine. But then he did the same on Uncontrollable Urge too.

  83. N.Z. Storm Waver

    If I was a Science Teacher. I'd show this video and Thomas Dolby's "She Blinded Me With Science" to them.

  89. Edward Mahoney

    When they came out, I was in Junior High. They're tunes and attitude always cracked me up.

  90. Alan Lloyd

    Mark Mothersbaugh is a better dancer than Michael Jackson!!!!

    Guy Boost

    They both went together in Double Dates
    Because DEVO helped The Jackson Family on Their
    Album s !

  91. DTOM, ¿eStamos?

    Inthejunior high in my hometown was a gym teacher named jocko who became known forever after this song came out as jocko homo. I think he was not a big fan of devo.

  92. George Mortimer

    Why is De-evolution?

  95. James Devlin

    That intro music is amazing.

  96. Dave Pledger

    70s trippin. You had to be there to be anywhere close to understanding it.

  97. Alan Lloyd

    This came out in the 70's. Imagine how far ahead of it's time it was AND STILL IS..

  98. I Wd

    Frank Zappa beat off to this song...
