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.
