Thanks to HannahRevenge of the Nerds is mentioned in the film American Splendor (which came out in 2003 I think) - the main characters of American Splendor go to see Revenge of the Nerds and discuss it on the ride home afterwards!
Thanks to Nick RobalikThe "concert" scene in ROTN isn't a parody of Devo - it's a parody of the older, and in my opinion much better, German, Industrial Techno act Kraftwerk, who - unike Devo - had their instruments strapped around their neck in the same fashion as the "nerds" in this movie. While the jumpsuits are decidedly Devo, as Kraftwerk usually wore fairly nice, conservative suits while performing, on more than one occasion they wore one-piece silver jumpsuits, much like the yellow jumpsuits in ROTN.
