In 1978 the greatest band of all time (to come out of Akron) came out with, arguably, the greatest first album of all time (to come out of Kent State) "Q: Are we not men? A: We are Devo!"
This flower-pot wearing band put out some of the greatest music of our time (from Northern, Ohio...specifically Kent & Akron).
-Greatest song of all time involving a whip? -Whip It (obviously)
-Greatest cover of a Rolling Stones song - Satisfaction
-Greatest song that you'll never hear at a karaoke bar - Girl U Want
Mark Mothersbaugh (lead singer of the greatest band to ever play the mini-moog) has created more film and television scores than there are films and television shows...and I'm only exaggerating a little...
He composed the music you hear in the Get a Mac commercials.
He single handedly wrote the song that shut up Barry Manilow.
Devo has been around for 35 years. I've heard everything they've ever played. While I'm not a Devo-tee (that's gotta be the fan club name, right?) I would say I know more about them than most.
So why did it take me until yesterday to find out that Devo stand for De-Evolution?
