i'm just sayin'... :Y
Dude, it's still an original if he is not directly parodying a specific song.

BTW, This song has grown on me over the years, but still not one of my favorite originals.
It continues to grow on me. I give it a 4 out of 5.

I love this song from the first time I heard it. I feel that it's a call to be yourself and be happy. Dare to be different and enjoy life. Others may look at you like are stupid or inferior for not following the status quo, but they don't matter. It's danceable as well. I'm probably thinking way to deep.

You're not thinking any different than I am about this song.
Just your ordinary run-of-the-mill fangirl

I just watched a whole bunch of Devo videos and this back-to-back and man the amount of effort put into the video is insane because there's only a couple of moments in the video that don't have a direct reference/connection to a Devo music video (and a commercial they did, bizarrely)

What's even more impressive is that it doesn't really reference Whip It or Girl U Want, which I would argue are the bands biggest hits.
Sever your leg, please. It's the greatest day.

I love this song. Brings me back to memories of watching Happy Tree Friends AMVS in summer of 2007. I miss that summer. I remember back in this job training program me and one of my best friends sang the song together. Memories...
