DEVO’s “Gates of Steel”


Gates of Steel is from DEVO’s third album, Freedom of Choice and it is a gem on an album filled with gems. I am not sure when it happened, but one day I woke up and it was my favorite DEVO song, this was in the 1980s and while I love so much of their work, I go back to Gates of Steel time and time again. When I saw them in concert and they played this I was hypnotized and could not move the entire time it was playing. I was just so paralyzed with joy.

They also redid this on their EZ Listening Album (which I also listen to a lot when working on the site).
