Out of Britain's new romantic movement, Depeche Mode went on to become the quintessential electro-pop band of the 1980s and they were one of the first acts to establish a musical identity based completely around the use of synthesizers.
The group began as a bouncy dance-pop outfit but developed a darker, more dramatic sound and became one of the most successful alternative bands of their era. They have had forty-five songs in the UK Singles Chart, as well as one U.S. and two UK number one albums. According to EMI, Depeche Mode have sold over 75 million albums worldwide as part of total worldwide record sales in excess of 100 million.
Depeche Mode has been cited as an influence by many of today's popular recording artists, such as Pet Shop Boys, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand and Linkin Park, due to their recording techniques and innovative use of sampling.
