Block-Head (music)

There's a song off of Devo's second album that always intrigued me, probably because of the 11/4 time signature. In addition, the guitar solo is one of Bob Mothersbaugh's best, bridging the gap between a traditional country-western guitar solo ("Beautiful World") and a punk guitar solo ("Too Much Paranoias").

Plus, the song was great for a parody. When I went to college in Portland, a couple of us wrote "Flat-Head" in honor of TV/furniture salesman Tom Peterson.

But here's the original. Enjoy.
