Everyone knows the art-punk band Devo and its hugely catchy 1980 hit 'Whip It' -- not to mention those dork-tastic flowerpot helmets. But the old-school Ohio rockers have also left a lasting footprint in Hollywood through its movie-friendly music.

In particular, bespectacled frontman Mark Mothersbaugh has composed the scores for dozens of films, including such diverse gems as 'Dumb and Dumber,' the first four Wes Anderson features, and the 2010 documentary 'Catfish.' So we figured he'd be the perfect inaugural subject of our new recurring feature, Musicians on Movies.

Mothersbaugh recently took a break from promoting 'Something for Everybody,' Devo's first album in 20 years, to e-mail us the five movies he would have liked to have scored.
