Hardcore[]

"Hardcore" was first used as DEVO's name for official compilations of demos released as albums, in two volumes. Devo say these are 4-track demos, recorded from April 1974 to December 1977 in Akron , Ohio . The compilations are known by several names. The first official release of these demos was in 1990 and 1991 .
Hardcore Volume 1 was released by Rykodisc in 1990 in CD and cassette formats. It was also released on CD in France by Fan Club in 1990 on LP and CD.
Hardcore Volume 2 was released by Rykodisc in 1991 on CD and cassette.
Both albums were re-released via Booji Boy Records/Superior Viaduct in 2013, featuring liner notes by Henry Rollins and 4 previously unreleased tracks were added to the end of HardcoreVolume 2

DEVO Live: The Mongoloid Years - a 1992 audio CD release - documents three live shows from '75 to '77.

Hardcore DEVO Live!- released as audio and video - documents the 2014 Hardcore DEVO tour which returned to this early music and was performed in tribute to the late Robert "Bob 2" Casale.

DEVO subsequently released the box set Art Devo 1973-1977 - beginning with an LP issue - in 2023.
