Depeche Mode Would Like to Clarify That They’re Not the ‘Official Band of the Alt-Right’

Because this is the world we live in now, Depeche Mode would like to clarify unequivocally that they are not, and have never been, the “official band of the alt-right.” After Richard Spencer (that neo-Nazi who got punched) told New York Washington correspondent Olivia Nuzzi that Depeche Mode is the white-nationalist movement’s official sound, the rock band rushed to refute that claim. “That is a pretty ridiculous claim,” a rep for the band told Gothamist. “Depeche Mode has no ties to Richard Spencer or the alt-right and does not support the alt-right movement.” The literal Nazis will have to find another band to soundtrack their nationalism — Depeche Mode is, again, totally not down.
