Peaking at number fourteen on the Billboard Hot 100, "Whip It" became a major hit, and found chart success in several international territories. In the band's forty-year history, "Whip It" remains Devo's only song to peak within the top forty on the Hot 100. As a result, Devo is often labeled as a one-hit wonder.
