* SellOut: Devo often likes to point out that they avoided the usual hypocrisy contemporary punk bands engaged in, i.e. preaching anarchy and anti-capital/corporatism in their lyrics, yet ending up selling out by singing up with the music labels, as selling out was always a part of the de-evolutionary mission statement.

->''"We thought the things that we'd seen would justify a whole new generation of Music/{{Bob Dylan}}s or Music/{{Woody Guthrie}}s, and it wasn't happening; instead we were getting {{disco}}, and concert rock. Y'know, Music/{{Foreigner}} and Music/{{Styx}}. Nobody was really talking about the issues, and the arts. We thought, well this is the time for us to do something; to say something. And that's how we began."''

Devo (often spelled DEVO or DEV-O), is a new wave/post-punk group hailing from Akron, Ohio. Most people remember them for their red Energy Dome hats and the 1980 single "Whip It", but their catalogue and achievements extend well beyond that. "Devo" stands for "De-evolution", the band's part-satirical, part-serious take on social and political corruption, bigotry, increasing dependence on consumerism and willful surrender of freedom among the common individual (a.k.a. the "spud"). They were formed by Music/MarkMothersbaugh, Jerry Casale, and Bob Lewis in 1973 partly as a response to the Kent State shootings (which Casale and Lewis personally witnessed).
