No. 41: Devastatin’ Dave – 50 Worst Album Covers
‘Zip Zap Rap’
Remember ‘Zapped,’ the 1982 sci-fi comedy starring Scott Baio as a nerd who gains telekinetic powers? Something tells us Devastatin’ Dave (The Turntable Slave) was tremendously inspired by that slice of cinematic excellence. But, instead of waxing righteously about lifting skirts and altering the paths of pitches on the diamond, DD uses his lyrical powers for an anti-drug message.
‘Say No to Drugs’ was the pop culture slogan of the ’80s, so we’re wondering why an album targeted to kids would have the word “zap” over The Turntable Slave’s Vitamin D. Please note that the rap’s lyrics will make you significantly dumber than any drug on the streets. Say no to whack rhymes.
