What do you get when you cross Depeche Mode with guitars?
One serious hot, rocking song and a huge hit song.
While Depeche Mode had a devoted fan base from their years of electronic-oriented music, this new direction for the band, which put a guitar in Martin L. Gore's hands and put Alan Wilder behind a drum kit, ended up bringing them one of their biggest career hits. The unexpected bombast, as it turns out, resonated.
As bombastic as that song is, it is somehow more so live. David Gahan somehow looks quite comfortable belting out the powerful, straight-ahead rock song.
