Devo is an American rock band which formed in 1973. They are often easily recognizable by their unique costumes, which sometimes includes yellow jump suits and red cone shaped hats. Their first major single to chart high was “Whip It” in 1980, which has since become known for its strange content. Many of their songs include surrealistic and satirical themes.
On October 14, 1978, Devo was featured as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live. The previous week had featured The Rolling Stones, and Devo followed their performance by covering “(I Cant’ Get No) Satisfaction,” a popular song by the Stones.
