Devo recorded the theme song for Monster Man, a show on the SyFy network about one of Hollywood's most respected monster prop building workshops. "Devo has always loved retro sci-fi," says Devo founder Gerald Casale. "When the stars of the Monster Man TV show approached us about writing a theme song and performing on the show in a video where we are incinerated by  the fire breath of a monster, I had it written in 15 minutes."

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
