Flashback: Styx "Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto"

Flashback: Styx "Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto"

Poised somewhere between the tongue-in-cheek '70s Kraftwerk robots and Daft Punk's nudge-nudge wink-wink robots of the new century is the masterwork "Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto" by the awesome band Styx. Without a trace of irony or humor (that's OK, that's my job!) the lead singer goes on and on about how robots represent the worst of dehumanizing technology. That's an original critique! (And, ummm, why do the robots look Asian?) Anyway, I shouldn't mistake this song for something that's supposed to provoke too much thought. It's just cheesy rock 'n' roll at its best. Kilroy was here!

The robots look Asian because the song's called "Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto." That was a tough one. I need a nap.
