Devo - (I Can't Get Me No) Satisfaction

One of the strangest cover versions ever to be recorded, Devo's take on the Rolling Stones classic "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" (with an added "me" in the song's title) is almost as good and almost as iconic as the original. The new wave band from Akron, Ohio released their version as a single in 1977, and because of the extensive changes they'd made to the song the band's lawyer set up a meeting with Mick Jagger in order for him to give his blessing, whereupon Jagger said he liked it. That may be because Devo's lawyer had somehow convinced Jagger's lawyer that he would make a lot of money off it.

Watch and listen
