Devo song Romney Seamus

Devo song Romney Seamus - Devo is preparing to release a song about Mitt Romney's old dog, Seamus, called "Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro! (Remember Seamus)." Seamus is the dog who traveled in a carrier strapped to the roof of Romney's car during a 1983 family vacation. President Barack Obama even cracked a joke about the incident this week.

Even Devo, the new wave band best known for 1980 single "Whip It," is hounding Romney about the Irish setter's infamous 12-hour car ride to Canada in a carrier tied to the top of the family car.
The band told The Guardian that its next single, due August 25, is called,
"Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro! (Remember Seamus)." The cover art shows a terrified pooch on the roof of a car driven by the Republican presidential candidate.
This isn't the first time Devo has had a political motivation behind one of its songs.
Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh told Songfacts that he thought of "Whip It" as "kind of a Dale Carnegie, 'You Can Do It' song for Jimmy Carter."
The story of Seamus was revived by none other than President Obama on Tuesday, during a campaign swing through Iowa. While talking up wind power, Obama tweaked Romney for recently saying: "You can't drive a car with a windmill on it." "Now, I don't know if he has actually tried that," said Obama, adding slyly, "I know he has had other things on his car." Romney, for his part, has said Seamus didn't mind the long, windy ride.
