Devo is an American rock music music group formed in Akron, Ohio in 1972. Devo's style has been variously classified as punk, industrial and rock, but are most often considered to be the 70s / early 80s New Wave band that ushered in the synth pop of the 1980s, along with other acts such as Gary Numan, Oingo Boingo and The B-52's. One of Devo's most well known songs is "Whip It".

Devo first performed on April 18, 1973 as the "Sextet Devo" at Kent State University's Creative Arts Festival at Recital Hall. Devo founders Gerald Casale, Mark Mothersbaugh and Bob Lewis were students at Kent State at the time the National Guard shot and killed four students at a protest against the U.S. invasion of Cambodia - the "pivotal moment" in their founding, according to Casale.
Devo's music and stage show mingle kitsch science fiction themes, deadpan surrealist humor and mordantly satirical social commentary in sometimes-discordant pop songs that often feature unusual synthetic instrumentation and time signatures.
Their work has proved hugely influential on subsequent popular music, particularly New Wave, alternative and grunge music. Devo created some memorable music videos popular in the early days of MTV.
