Devo ( /ˈdiːvoʊ/, originally /diːˈvoʊ/) is an American punk rock/New Wave band formed in 1972 consisting of members from Kent and Akron, Ohio. The classic line-up of the band includes two sets of brothers, the Mothersbaughs (Mark and Bob) and the Casales (Gerald and Bob), along with Alan Myers. The band had a No. 14 Billboard chart hit in 1980 with the single "Whip It", and has maintained a cult following throughout its existence. Their style over time has shifted between punk, art rock, post-punk, and New Wave. Their music and stage show mingle kitsch science fiction themes, deadpan surrealist humor, and mordantly satirical social commentary. Their often discordant pop songs feature unusual synthetic instrumentation and time signatures that have proven influ… more »

Hang your head
Hang your head
Hang your head
Hang your head

Some things never change
Some things never change

Hang your head
Hang your head

I saw the news today, oh boy
(Hang your head)
A thousand starry skies we've seen before
(Hang your head)

Small minds play at some big time games
And everybody else pays
Make no mistake, they're on the take
They like to keep it that way

Some things never change
Some things never change

I saw the light today, oh boy
(Hang your head)
It came on flashing bright, in red and blue
(Hang your head)

The man steps in with a terminal grin
Blue skies turn to gray
Young men die and the children cry, why is
It always the same?
(Hang your head)

Life must be eaten, or at least bitten into
To get past the surface, the moment of truth
You know when it's right, it's sweet deep inside
It's real and it's better that some things don't change

I saw the news today, oh boy
(Hang your head)
A thousand pictures of the lies we live
(Hang your head)

Small minds play at some big time games
And everybody else pays
(Hang your head)
They're on the take, and they don't give breaks

They like to take it away
(Hang your head)
(Hang your head)

Some things never change
(Hang your head)
Some things never change
(Hang your head)

Man steps in with a terminal grin
Blue skies turn to gray
(Hang your head)
Young men die, and the children cry, why is

It always the same?
(Hang your head)
(Hang your head)
(Hang your head)
