Warner Brothers AKA Warner Bros. (WB), AKA Warner Brothers records (WBR), AKA Warner Music Group (WMG), AKA "the bunny"

After some negotiations, Devo ended up with a multi-record deal, with WB as their main label. Virgin records got in on the negotiations and would publish and distribute Devo's music in Europe. These albums would be recorded by the classic Devo lineup of Jerry, Alan, Mark, Bob 1 and Bob 2.

Devo would later re-record many tracks for licensing, because the money from licensing the original tracks went to WB, under the terms of the contract.

As time marched on WB would "merge on" to own the other companies Devo recorded for and released music with. Finally, Devo would again sign a deal with the "devil they know," who owned Devo's back catalogue. This limited time "360" deal ensured there was Something for Everybody at WB from Devo's touring, merchandising, licensing, and album sales. Devo let in outside producers to work on the tracks and WB let the ad agency Mother spread the word.

Then Devo was again freed from WB, who said they wouldn't continue supporting the website platform they used for Devo and other bands. This led to the current official website Devo operates.

In recent times, WB bots seem to have stopped taking down every Devo online video. Instead WB posts their own videos online for almost Devo track off almost every Devo release.

The Devo track "Freedom of Choice" was included in the WB compilation "revolutions in sound: warner brother records: the first 50 years"
