What the fuck is happening. Whip It is a novelty song that should have been on Dr. Demento.
Novelty song? If that's the case, all of Devo's songs are novelty songs.
I don't disagree. I've never been a fan of their brand of humor.

I think there's a lot more going on with Devo than just a joke band.

I also don't necessarily disagree with that (was being broad before), I just don't see it myself. I've tried to get into them a few times to no avail. I can't get past the gimmicks. I will say Gates of Steel is pretty good live.

Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Devo is absolutely neither a joke or a novelty act in the sense that it’s often used. The joke they’re talking about is a cosmic one.

Sounds like a toy my kids had when they were young, twist it, bop it, squeeze it!! I like Devo but really, best track 3 off every album?

I know that toy you speak of, it tormented me for years.

I see what you mean to an extent but the groove is just too great, and I have many happy memories of it playing at our local nightclub circa 1985.

Yeah, but it was released in 1980, so it obviously had legs. I was surprised to find it wasn't a major hit in the UK.

To be honest when I saw it nominated I had to go to YouTube but knew it straight away. I was surprised it was Devo.
