Devo - Be Stiff


On this date in 1978, Devo released their third single, "Be Stiff". It was backed by "Social Fools". Both tracks were included on the six song EP Be Stiff which was only released in the U.K. and Japan. Neither track was included on their debut album, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!, though the B side was added to the album on a later CD re-release. The Akron, Ohio punk/new wave band went on hiatus in the early 90's as the band members were involved in separate projects. They resumed recording and performing in 1996.
