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.

Some things never change
Hang your head
I saw the news today o boy
A thousand stories that we've seen before
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
I saw the light today o boy
It come on flashing bright in red and blue
The man steps in with a terminal grin
Blue skies turn to grey
Young men die and children cry
Why is it always the same

Life must be eaten
Or at least bitten into
To get past the surface
The moment of truth
You know when its right
Its sweet deep inside
Its real and its better
That some things don't change

I saw the news today o boy
A thousand pictures of the lies we live
Small minds play at some big time games
And everybody else pays
They're on the take and they don't give breaks
They like to take it away
Some things never change
Hang your head
