(Newser) – Mitt Romney's infamous decision to strap the family dog to the roof of the car on a vacation trip will be immortalized in song. Devo will release "Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro! (Remember Seamus)" on Aug. 25, reports Rolling Stone. (You can listen here, via a Huffington Post link.) Group founder Gerald Casale is apparently a big dog guy, because he's also got a Seamus-themed website and a smartphone game in the works, and he's a supporter of the Dogs Against Romney movement. The song is sure to be on Times columnist Gail Collins' download list.
