Devo - Turn Around
Devo were very underrated, in more ways than one.
Musically, they were groundbreaking. Ohio boys, and they remind us that Ohio was the place where Krautrock found its most receptive American audience. Anyone listening to KXLU in Los Angeles for only one hour in any decade since Devo started out will hear music that was either Devo inspired, or influenced by Devo copy bands.
They were also very clever social critics. This very song is a fine example.
