Devo Skewers Romney in Hilarious New Song About His Roof Racked Dog (LISTEN)

Ah, who can forget Seamus the dog, the Irish setter that Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney Shame-usly tied to his station wagon's roof rack as he made a 12-hour trip to his parents' lake house. Mutt lovers and Mitt haters alike have ravaged Mitt like he had Milkbone underwear (thanks, Norm Peterson) since Shamey's story first broke through the crate. Now '80s punk rock band Devo, the MTV fave famous for the song "Whip It" (Remember? Whip it! Whip it good!), wants to make sure Seamus is immortalized in song.


Devo's founder, Gerald Casale, remains so moved by Seamus's rooftop journey that he's designed a T-shirt to benefit Dogs Against Romney. He's also developing a smartphone game called “The Crate Escape: Seamus Unleashed.” Is this a dog fan or what?

But Casale's most notable gift to Shames will be his song, "Don’t Roof Rack Me Bro! (Remember Seamus)."

Casale told Rolling Stone:

This isn't a red-state thing or Devo stumping for Obama. 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.

Indeed, indeed. Who the hell racks a dog to the roof? Mitt Romney, that's who. Anyway, I'm thinking that Devo's song prolly goes a lil' sumpthin' like this:

When Seamus comes along

You must rack him

Because he's just a dog

You must rack him

Now rack him

On the roof

To the lake house

Get there fast

Before the Humane Society

Gets on our ass

It's Seamus

Now rack him good!

Well, not really. Actually, the song is below and you can take a listen. Seamus won't be listening, however, because he long ago passed over the rainbow bridge -- and not the rainbow roof rack. Seamus on you, Mitt!

What do you think of the song?
