The Merv Griffin Show in 1980 had a feature appearance by Devo, who performed two songs, Whip It, and Girl You Want. During the chit-chat, it went as well as you would think.
This was a terrific group here, strange instruments though Jerry. Nothing we’ve seen before on this planet. …It’s hard to believe this group came out of Akron Ohio …they came out of there by popular request …oh boy it all works I’ll tell you and it must be a thrill to have a big commercial hit now huh.
