Template:Infobox musical artist

Devo 2.0 (also known as DEV2.O) is a quintet, created for Walt Disney Records (with the participation of Devo), of child actors who sing, dance, and (in their music videos and photo shoots) mime playing instruments along to songs re-recorded by some of the original members of Devo. Jerry Casale directed all nine of the DEV2.O videos.

A DVD and CD combo was released March 14, 2006. In the summer of 2006 the band began a limited series of live performances, and also contributed a non-album track, Monkey's Uncle, to a compilation of re-recorded Disney songs called Disneymania, Volume 4.

Altered lyricsEdit

The lyrics to some of the songs they perform have been edited to make them more "family friendly" and remove much of the innuendo and irony typical of Devo songs.

In "Through Being Cool", for instance, the line "Eliminate the ninnies and the twits" is changed to "Eliminate the time you waste in cliques", and the innuendo-filled "Girl U Want" is re-written as "Boy U Want" (although the video version of "Girl U Want" keeps nearly all of the original lyrics intact).

The song "Beautiful World" remains mostly unchanged until the end, where the words, "It's a beautiful world for you/It's not for me" have been changed to, "It's a beautiful world for you/I guess me too".

In "Big Mess" the line "I'm a boy with a gun" became "I'm a girl havin' fun".

The theme of "Uncontrollable Urge" changed from sexual anxiety to craving snack foods, and "Jerkin' Back 'N Forth", a techno dirge with a masturbation double-entendre, is now a perky song about dancing.
