Devo has been praised for being "new wave pioneers of sound and vision." Their music is equal parts art project, performance art, rock and roll satire, and a punk band. They were able to produce a fresh sound to the musical landscape. They fuse elements of new wave, post-punk, synthpop, and synthpunk.
Aside from Devo, the 15 remaining diverse nominated musical acts for the Class of 2021 include Mary J.
