"Secret Agent Man" had been recorded first in 1974 for Devo's first film and performed live as early as 1976.

In 1978, the B Stiff EP was released by British independent label Stiff, which included the single "Be Stiff" plus two previous Booji Boy releases.
Recommendations from David Bowie and Iggy Pop enabled Devo to secure a recording contract with Warner Bros. After Bowie backed out of the business deal due to previous commitments, their first album, Q: Are We Not Men? was produced by Brian Eno and featured re-recordings of their previous singles "Mongoloid" and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction".
Devo was also a pioneer of the music video, creating many memorable clips for the Laser Disc format, with "Whip It" getting heavy airplay in the early days of MTV.
