Dare to Be Stupid" is an original song by "Weird Al" Yankovic. It is a musical pastiche (or "style parody") of the band Devo. Lyrically, the song encourages the listener to be stupid in various ways; mostly by advising them to do the opposite of common idioms (. let the bedbugs bite" or "put all your eggs in one basket"), with the occasional absurd non sequitur (. stick your head in the microwave and get yourself a tan").
