Brooklyn band The Men already had a grimy version of Devo’s excellent “Gates Of Steel” in its repertoire before Undercover came knocking, but in a beautiful display of rock symmetry, they brought it to us (and to you). The song is from Devo’s 1980 album Freedom Of Choice, a record that’s frequently overshadowed by its massive hit single, “Whip It.” But there’s far more to Devo (and to Freedom, which also includes “Girl U Want” and the killer title track) than “Whip It,” and The Men bring out the rockingest rock side of the source material here. The latest Men album—its fifth since 2010—is Tomorrow’s Hits.
