* 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.

* 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."''
