^^^ GOAT Depeche Mode song

Growing up in the 80s-90s they were really big at one time and were somewhat leaders of the alternative music scene. Then in the late 90s there was a point where you got clowned on if you listened to them, and labeled a f@g. I don't think anyone of the band is actually gay but they were rumored to be for a while. It's understandable, they used to wear outfits with leather straps everywhere, they looked the part. Today I don't think anyone gives them any thought at all, teens today probably don't know who they are.

Too many great songs to count. "Stripped", "See You", "Never Let Me Down Again", "But Not Tonight", etc.

I'll probably see them at the Hollywood Bowl next month. This one is a personal favorite of mine, though i doubt they'll play it: https://youtu.be/k51MAYeY0FU

My first concert that I used my own earned money to get tickets, and they weren't cheap. Saw DM live on the World Violation tour, in.. 90 IIRC.

Great band indeed, and one of the biggest bands in the world in the 80s.

Policy of Truth (BTW, the LP remaster is still be the best release. IMO they are holding out on a higher quality remaster for a later date).

Policy of Truth and Personal Jesus are really catchy songs but I like their older stuff a little better.

Everything Counts(the official video is gay AF though)

Blasphemous Rumours

The Cure and The Smiths are better British 80s bands though IMO(yeah I know DM and The Cure carried on successfully long after the 80s).

Nice pop band that exploited the fact that it took very little, artistically, to be "great" within the synthpop movement.

Little more than a pimple in the overall flow of the history of Music.

I feel like an old dude since I don't know them.. I'll check them on google play to see what kind of music it is. As long as it's not heavy metal, I can listen to it
