DEVO is near and dear to my elderly heart…they were the “naughty” punky band that upset the adults back in the olden days of 1982. When our high school cheerleaders did a routine set to the band’s big hit “Whip It”, the powers that be got all pissy wissy and threatened to get all “Footloose” and ban all the fun music!
Then we burned down the school!
No…wait. That was the Ramones in “Rock n Roll High School”!! Still…good times were had by all.
