Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject Communications - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,5, University of Siegen, course: Poetry and (Rock) Music, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: "Depeche Mode are a modern religion including comfort and salvation, adoration and belief, cloister and resurrection." (Quotation of an unknown fan) For more than twenty years Depeche Mode have been filling their fans with enthusiasm. A band that seems to stay always the same: Never getting enough, always being left out a bit of the music scene, but although steadily playing at first front. The electronic Pop music of the 1980's and 1990's was mainly influenced by Depeche Mode. How could three teenage boys in the early 80s, bringing a quite new sound and style into the Pop music scene, become one of the most successful bands of all times? This paper is going to follow Depeche Mode from their early beginnings to their later stardom, taking a close look at their special kind of music and style. So, reach out and touch faith! (Quotation from the song "Personal Jesus," released in 1989)
