B-52's.

Both bands had terrific debut albums followed by a bunch of so-so stuff.

The B-52's, being the best album ever made, is stronger than even Are We Men...?.

I see that I'm in the minority, however. Y'all's vote is understandable but I think that the B-52's squeak it out by a nose.

If any album could turn me gay, it would be that album.

you act like de-vo isn't completely gay.
in that gay=nerd/freak.

the only problem i had with this poll (chose de-vo) is that rickey wilson is my favourite guitarist.

fine, doesn't outweigh Hardcore de-vo, let alone the first four proper albums.

I think Devo changed who I am, slightly. B-52s didn't.

Hardcore Devo Vol.1 is one of the better CD's you can find yourself holding at any given time.

I'm not acting like anything. And it's DEVO, there is no - .

You can masturbate to photos of computers all you want, most likely that doesn't make you the gay.

I voted B52s too.

I love Devo but that first record by the B52s stands alone.

Absolutely true.

I listen to Devo very often and never find myself listening to B-52's on purpose.

This is a silly C/NC

The B-52s are a fine rock band, but Devo wins this one no contest.

Nothing the B-52s did comes close to the stuff compiled on the Hardcore Devo discs or the records from Q: Are We Not Men... to New Traditionalists.

D-E-V-O from O-H-I-O.

I've never liked the B-52s. In fact, i mostly sort of hate them.

I like the B-52's just fine, but there aren't many bands I'd put above Devo. Maybe three or four, tops.

I think the results of this poll are a bit sad.

17 to 3? Really?
