Devo is an American new wave band that formed in Akron, Ohio in 1973. The band consists of brothers Gerald and Bob Casale, along with Mark Mothersbaugh and brothers Bob and Jim Mothersbaugh. Devo was originally known for their quirky and irreverent style, which often incorporated science fiction and post-modern themes.

The band's breakout album was 1978's Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!, which featured the single "Mongoloid." The album also included their cover of The Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction," which became a surprise hit and gave Devo their first taste of mainstream success.

The band's second album, Duty Now for the Future, was released in 1979 and featured the single "Girl U Want." This was followed by the album Freedom of Choice in 1980, which featured the singles "Whip It" and "Girl U Want." The album also featured the single "Gates of Steel," which is often considered to be one of Devo's most iconic songs.

In 1984, Devo released their sixth album, Shout, which featured the single "That's Good." The album marked a shift in the band's sound and featured more synthesizers and drum machines than their previous albums.

In 1990, Devo released the album Smooth Noodle Maps, which featured the single "Post Post-Modern Man." The album marked a return to the band's original quirky and irreverent style, and was their last studio album for over 20 years.

In 2010, Devo released their seventh studio album, Something for Everybody. The album featured the singles "Don't Shoot (I'm a Man)" and "What We Do," and marked the band's return to the mainstream.

An interesting fact about Devo is that the band was heavily influenced by the writings of philosopher and sociologist R. Buckminster Fuller, who believed in the power of technology to improve the world. This influence is evident in many of Devo's songs, which often feature themes of technology and progress.
