Human Highway is a 1982 comedy film starring and co-directed by Neil Young under his pseudonym Bernard Shakey. Dean Stockwell co-directed the film and acted along with Russ Tamblyn, Dennis Hopper, and the band Devo. Included is a collaborative performance of "Hey Hey, My My (Into the Black)" by Devo and Young with Booji Boy singing lead vocals and Young playing lead guitar.
Gerald V. Casale filmed the segment where Devo and Booji Boy appear as "nuclear garbagepersons" and sing a cover of "Worried Man." (This segment appears in "We're All DEVO", with short cutaways to Rod and Donut Rooter replacing the film's cutaways from Devo.) Booji also appears by himself, such as the (chronologically last) scene where he performs a monologue, quoting from his book "My Struggle."
Versions of the film were shown in select theaters in 1982 and 1983 and released in LaserDisc and VHS formats in 1995. Events in the 1995 release occur in chronological order, except for the first scene, a  flash-forward featuring Booji.  The film received poor reviews upon its premiere 1 and has received favorable reviews more recently. 2 In 2015 a 4th edit of the film was released in theaters and on video, after it premiered in 2014.[1] Jerry likes this edit the best.[2]
