Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo
Released: Oct 2009
Label: Warner Bros.
The über-dorks who made America uncomfortable for a couple years in the 1980s, Devo have emerged as one of the most influential bands of the decade, thanks to this 1978 debut. Not only did they make New Wave safe for the masses, they gleefully turned rock 'n' roll icons on their heads without forgetting to make music that rocks. See "Uncontrollable Urge" for proof.
