The band soon attracted the attention of Music/DavidBowie, Music/IggyPop, and Music/BrianEno. They eventually signing with Creator/WarnerBrosRecords in America (which they later regretted) and Virgin Records in England. Their Eno-produced debut album ''Music/QAreWeNotMenAWeAreDevo'' was released in 1978; that same year they appeared on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' in yellow jumpsuits and dark 3D glasses, playing "Jocko Homo" and their infamous cover of Music/TheRollingStones' "Satisfaction". They followed up their debut with ''Duty Now For The Future'' in 1979, featuring more songs from their underground years, such as "Wiggly World" and "Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA" (the latter being a six-minute synth-punk fest that only picks up in intensity).

* HeelRealization: The theme of "The Shadow" is that HumansAreFlawed and everyone has a dark side, including the narrator.
--> Sometimes I fail to follow through
--> On things that I want to do
--> And other times I find myself
--> Doing the very things I hate



** In "Are You Experienced?" Bob1 plays a backards guitar solo which is the main riff from another Jimi Hendrix song, "Third Stone From the Sun" - a song which Jimi recorded backwards. This gives way to another mini-shout out, since the drums in Devo's version are recorded backwards.

* ColorWash: "The Girl U Want" music video is very purple-and-green, to the point that there almost aren't any other colours. Even skin is mostly purple.

* AccentUponTheWrongSyllable: Most people pronounce the band's name "DEE-voh," but the band members themselves insist it's "dee-VOH." The latter pronunciation appears in "Jocko Homo", where it can be considered a case of accentuating the wrong syllable to keep the rhythm (we ARE de-VO), and "Time Out for Fun", and is also used by Booji Boy in "We're All Devo!", Nu-Tra in "Nu-Tra Speaks (New Traditionalist Man)" and General Boy in "General Boy Visits Apocalypse Now" and "Duty Now for the Future!", from the ''Pioneers Who Got Scalped'' anthology.
