* Devo sent to Music/TheRollingStones frontman Mick Jagger and his lawyer their cover of "Satisfaction". 30 seconds into the song, Jagger was ''dancing'' to it. To this day he calls it the best cover of any Stones song.

-->'''Gerald Casale:''' We stuck our cassette into this big boom box and pressed Play. Jagger sat in total silence staring straight ahead. We thought, "God, he hates it". But then, he jumped up out of his chair and started dancing wildly in front of the fireplace. Dancing just like Mick Jagger. I thought, "Oh shit, he loves it!" Mark and I went home totally stoked and elated.

** 1980's ''Freedom Of Choice,'' a remarkable achievement on its own terms. Not only did it spawn "Whip It" and thus their greatest mainstream success, but it's also one of the best combinations of guitar rock and synth pop ever put on wax.

* In June of 2014, Devo hit the road again to perform sets almost entirely composed of material from the Hardcore Devo years, to an excited reception from, well, hardcore fans. Doing their most ''devolved'' material in 2014 is a strangely triumphant moment for Devo, but it's also got a little [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming]] in there too, with some of the proceeds going to the family of the late Bob Casale.
