Devo's debut album "Are We Not Men? We Are Devo" was released 40 years ago Tuesday.
The band was started by students at Kent State University. They were on campus in 1970 when members of the National Guard shot and killed four unarmed students during an anti-war protest. That experience helped shape the band's belief that civilization was in a state of de-evolution.
This first album was produced by Brian Eno with assistance from David Bowie, who were both early fans of the group.
