Oh God!

"Dare To Be Stupid" is a song by "Weird Al" Yankovic, featured on the soundtrack to the 1986 film Transformers: The Movie.

A "style parody" of Devo, the song premiered on Al's third album, also titled Dare to be Stupid. It was used as the music for the "Junkions attack" and "Junkions become friends" scenes in the movie; the song's rampant pop-culture referencing certainly fits with the pop-culture-talking Junkions.

Reportedly, it was included in the movie soundtrack because Scotti Bros. Records, the label Al was at during that time, decided to promote acts on their label heavily, and Al (always popular with the kids) was one of the biggest. As Al himself tells it, he just got a phone call one day and said "Okay," and that was basically the last he heard about it, save the royalty checks.

The song is track 10 on all versions of the movie soundtrack.
