80s Awesomeness! ~ 83


Depeche Mode!!!


Emo before there was emo, with a big heaping splash of synthesizers, Depeche Mode was the poster child for the offbeat 80s music. They weren't hair metal, they weren't bubble gum pop or punk. Up there with the likes of New Order, Depeche Mode touched the hearts of black-wearing, eyeliner toting teenagers everywhere. But don't forget the mainstream. Synths were it in the 80s so Depeche Mode was riding two waves at once. And winning.

Ah, memories! I was/am a HUGE D-Mode fan. Played them and The Cure so much, I think my mother was worried about my sanity.
