Bonus! Cognitive dissonance.

Devo, "The Girl You Want," circa 1980.

Terrible video quality in the clip, but man, check out the audience in the barettes, the granny dresses, and the FREDs, staring down at these boys in their glittery sharkskin suits, skinny ties and LEGO hats, taking the '80's right between the eyes.

That's Science Fiction, right there, boys.

Comments

I grew up in a tiny little town where the 80s didn't start until 1986 or so. What are FREDs, please?
According to the person who explained them to me, "Fucking ridiculous eye devices."

or "Field regulation eye devices," if you happen to be in the army.
Ohhhh! I had those! Shades, in every weird-ass configuration available. Including those oval ones that Sting had in his "If you love somebody" video.

I'm not going to mention that I still have them. No. Because that would be weird.
