A realy interesting band that gets underrated by none usual listeners. The more they talk about dark topics the more popular they get, this beacuse of the intense atmosphere around the deep lyrics and unique voice. While several albums are kinda mediocre, none of them is actualy bad, meanwhile their singles are allways great.

Fathers of dark pop, and best electronic band of the '80s. Mostly influenced by Kraftwerk but, on the other hand, DM influenced the whole german electronic scene. Synthpop bands as Diorama, Seabound, De/Vision, Beborn Beton, Covenant, Deine Lakaien, Wolfsheim, Rotersand etc, they wouldn't even exist if there wasn't DM. Their greatest works were between '86 and '93, and their greatest mistake...they let Alan Wilder go, in '94.

Without fear of being wrong, I dare say that Depeche Mode is one of the 10 most influential bands in history, and an underrated band.

I can't believe someone (@ShaneSpear) called Depeche Mode a "one-album wonder"!!!
Hallo? Which ONE album would that be? Some Great Reward? (US platinum)? Music for the masses (US platinum)? Violator? (US 3xPlatinum)? Songs of faith and devotion (US platinum)?
I've got news for you: Depeche Mode have sold in excess of 100 million records worldwide (which is a heck of a good deal for any "one-album wonder")!
