    Thanks for the website! Every band I loved growing up and was mocked for liking is now classic and loved by my mockers. The seminal moment in my life for music was DEVO on Saturday Night Live. I stood there literally mesmerized when they played Satisfaction and danced in a herky-jerky fashion through Jockohomo with tears running down my face. I had no idea music like that existed. It changed my whole everything for me.
