A song about sexual frustration as performed by robots. Devo's version has a layer of humor that isn't present in the Stones' version. You can actually believe Mark Mothersbaugh when he sings about not being able to get laid.

Another one where there can never be a "better" version. Like Cat Power, Devo tore it up and made a great new song but paid proper homage to the original.

Devo shows in classic style how a song should be covered.

I voted DEVO, they are an amazing band, Hardcore Devo Vol 1 & 2 and the short film, The truth about devolution, are quite interesting...

I think Rolling Stones win but funny that the Devo version was used in Casino the movie! Check out our site by googling Judemac forever

Let's put it this way: I can believe Mark from Devo has a tougher time getting laid than Mick Jagger ever will.
