5 (2) Questions With Depeche Mode Ahead of Their Rock Hall Induction



The best band in the world is finally being inducted to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!!

Billboard sat down with Depeche Mode to ask them a few questions ahead of this momentous event.

Martin Gore on being asked whether the members balk at being called a "rock band": "We used to be electronic purists, but that changed at some point during the ‘80s when we started using guitars and other instruments, so I have no problem with being called rock."

On being asked to pick one album as an essential turning point in the band's career beyond Violator: "The big turning point for the band was Black Celebration. I think we turned down a dark alleyway that we quite liked."
