COLUMBUS, OH (AP).- The oddball rock group Devo has donated one of the red conical hats from its hit video "Whip It" to an Ohio museum.

The Ohio Historical Society says it has received a small collection of artifacts from the band and its official archivist. The items include stickers, T-shirts, costumes and a flower pot-style hat worn in the band's memorable 1980 video.

Three of the band's founding members grew up in Akron and met at Kent State University in the 1970s.

The group's name came from a theory the human race is in a process of devolution, which members read about in an anti-Darwinism pamphlet.

The band most recently performed in Ohio in 2008 for Barack Obama's presidential campaign. An annual DEVOtional convention is held in Cleveland.
