I do believe Devo is one of those bands that is an acquired taste. Everyone knows them for Whip It, which is kinda representative of their tongue in cheek humor.
First and foremost, they're a concept. They formed after one of their friends was killed at Kent State in the early 70s. Their concept of De-evolution is pretty fresh for its time, they were ahead of the game as far as punk or "new wave"...John Lennon and David Bowie were pretty much responsible for them getting their record deal through Warner Bros. after they had seen the Devo movie from 1976:

That's their manifesto

Their proper LPs are not super solid but they have many brilliant tracks. I was introduced in the mid-90s when my older brother got their Greatest Hits. It was pretty cool to play this music when everyone was listening to grunge.
From then on, I became acquainted with Are We Not Men, Duty Now for the Future, Freedom of Choice, and New Traditionalists. Their 70s demos are on the Hardcore volumes, one of which Bottle Up was on the Ariel Fact mix, I do believe that was Bottle Up...
They also had many fictional characters like General Boy, Booji Boy, just a very conceptual band who made some of the greatest/funniest music videos. Very kitsch and very perverted in some of their lyrics. It's hard to put them in a nutshell

I could list favorite tracks if you're interested.
