Freedom of Choice

Devo  - Freedom of Choice video

Classic Devo and classic skateboarding, circa 1980. Maybe the first music video to feature skateboarding if you don’t count Skater Dater. The DVD compilation The Complete Truth About De-Evolution has been out since 2003, so it’s not surprising that this clip turned up on You Tube. Peep it via Earth Patrol Media, who had the good sense to spot this. Yes that’s Stacy Peralta up top. Some other pros are in it as well, but I can’t remember who.


  1. Of the eight skaters, I recognize Duane Peters, Tony Alva, Steve Olson, Steve Alba, Stacy Peralta, David Andrecht, Eddie Elguera and ??? Not sure about the final one. Anyone else?

    • Eric Grisham. They all did this video at night, until dawn on a Friday, a Gold Cup comp was on the next day and they all, part from Stacey skated in it without sleep, think it was Whitter, but could be wrong, been a while hahaha.

      • Looks like Marina Del Rey. Commenting ten years in the future, but I think that’s accurate.

  2. Peralta’s face in the picture looks kind of like to Devo guys in make-up…bizzaro. Re: the above question- wouldn’t Brad Bowman have to be in that video?

  3. If you get a chance check out the history of DEVOlution DVD. A must for any DEVO fan.
