It was only a question of time, but on Saturday (Nov. 7), Depeche Mode will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2020. Other artists who are receiving the honor are Nine Inch Nails, The Notorious B.I.G., T. Rex, The Doobie Brothers, and Whitney Houston.
The celebrated English synth-pop band launched onto the music scene in 1981 with debut album Speak & Spell, with third single, the upbeat "Just Can't Get Enough," finding footing on Billboard's Dance Songs chart. From there, the band -- featuring Dave Gahan on lead vocals and Martin Gore penning the brooding lyrics and lending his own pipes -- continued to find and sustain success, with 1990's Violator peaking at No. 7 on the Billboard 200, 1991's Songs of Faith and Devotion topping the chart, and Depeche Mode's latest and 14th studio album, 2017's Spirit, peaking at No. 5.
