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.

Twist away the gates of steel 
Unlock the secret voice 
Give in to ancient noise 
Take a chance a brand new dance 
Twist away the gates of steel 

Twist away, now twist and shout 
The earth it moves too slow 
But the earth is all we know 
We pay to play the human way 
Twist away the gates of steel 

A man is real 
Not made of steel 

But the earth is all we know 
We pay to play the human way 
Twist away the gates of steel 

The beginning was the end 
Of everything now 
The ape regards his tail 
He's stuck on it 
Repeats until he fails 
Half a goon and half a god 
A man's not made of steel 

Twist away, now twist and shout 
The earth it moves too slow 
But the earth is all we know 
We pay to play the human way 
Twist away the gates of steel 

A man is real that's how he feels
