Devo's take on "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" from their 1978 album Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! kept the lyrics, but radically reinterpreted the music into their own staccato "mechanical" version; it was selected by The Telegraph as one of the 50 greatest cover versions of all time. Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh claims that the idea for the cover came from singing "Satisfaction" and "Paint It Black" at the same time, while going through a car wash.
