Charlize Theron inducted Depeche Mode into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last night, saying there has been a Depeche Mode song for every occasion in her life - her first date, leaving South Africe, first heartbreak, etc.
She says their music makes you feel like it's okay to be different, and that she cried when she saw them live. (You and me both, Charlize!)
She also says their induction should have happened 20 years ago.
In Dave Gahan's acceptance speech, he said, "I think music really brings people together, and God knows we need that more today than it seems any other time." He also says "music saved us" and that he would have been stealing cars or "something dodgy" if the band never happened.
