Devo - Workin' in a Coal Mine
That said, "Working in a Coal Mine" is a merely decent Devo song. It's obviously a cover of the classic Allen Toussaint tune. Devo was always a bit weird in selecting their covers. They also covered "Satisfaction" by The Rolling Stones. For a band as strangely skewed as Devo I suppose any song would seem an odd choice for a cover. At any rate, Devo cranks out a workmanlike cover of "Working in a Coal Mine" on this single. There is no b-side, it's the same song on both sides of the record.
