If you're a fan of great music from the 1980s, or perhaps some of the best music of all time from any era, then you're probably already familiar with Devo. The Mark Mothersbaugh led band created a unique blend of pop, rock, and new wave to form their very own Devo sound that is unmistakably catchy. Whip It, of course, is one their biggest hits. It's also where we can see Devo's style of clothing and accessories, which is about as unique as their music. Let's dive in... is that a flower pot on their head, or what?
Nope. It's actually something the band invented called an energy dome. Like ancient Ziggurats of the same shape, the energy dome takes expelled energy from the mind and redistributes it back into the brain for increased mental awareness. That’s what the band claims, anyway. We're not sure what Devo did with all this increased mental energy besides create incredible music, but that doesn't really matter in the end. The energy dome just looks cool! And it became an icon of the band, along with the yellow jumpsuit.
Speaking of the yellow jumpsuit, this Devo Whip It costume for men actually comes with one! We don't know as much about the jumpsuits as we do the domes, but this costume is designed to look just like the classic costume Devo popularized in the 80s in all their concert appearances and music videos. Whipping it good? Recommended! Whipping it good and SAFELY? Highly recommended.
