Bob Casale

Bob Casale, who was a key musical figure in Devo, a band that was at the forefront of the new wave movement in the late 1970s with their seminal irresistible smash hit “Whip It,” passed away on February 17, 2014 from heart failure. He was 61.

Born Robert Edward Casale Jr., but credited as “Bob2” in the band, the Kent, OH native’s passing was confirmed by his brother, bandmate, and Devo founder Gerald Casale, who posted the news to the official Devo Facebook page. Casale, who played guitar and keyboards, was a member of Devo during what is arguably the band’s zenith, from 1976 to 1991. He was also a current member of the band as well, having returned to it back in 1996, when Devo reformed after a five-year separation.

If you’ve never heard the song “Whip It,” I’m afraid you might be dead (unless you’ve seen a Swiffer commercial recently). Devo – that funny band of robotic nerds in matching plastic hats and space suits – have been around since the late 1970s. The aforementioned best-known hit was released in 1980 on their third album, Freedom of Choice. Also on this Greatest Hits compilation are other priceless gems like “Girl U Want,” “Jocko Homo,” and their cover of the Rolling Stones’ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction.” Devo’s quirky new-wave sound holds up well decade after decade, making this $5 MP3 deal a sound investment in your future fun.

Browse all 1,000 albums on sale this month for only $5 each, as well as several albums on sale this week for only $2.99 each.
