I have had this argument I don’t know how many times with idiots who consider themselves DEPECHE MODE fans.

MODE have NEVER had a NUMBER ONE SINGLE on the UK CHARTS! and that is that!

Go look at for yourself arsehole!

I have kindly attached all Modes singles by year just to show you that the best they ever did was 4th on the singles chart. They did however reach that position 3 times.

I am a MODE fan by the way.

  1. LOL! Who’s the “idiot arsehole”? Name and shame!!

    You are 100% correct – they have never had a #1 single in the UK – and that’s from the 49 tracks released as singles.

    The same is true of the US charts – never a #1 single. Which, considering their impact and influence (and sales) in the States is even more perplexing to me personally. They have topped the US Dance and US Modern Rock charts on a number of occasions, but never the singles chart.

    However, singles aside….

    DM have made the #1 spot twice on the UK album charts. 1993’s Songs of Faith & Devotion and 1997’s Ultra. SOFAD is also the only Mode album to have reached #1 on the US album charts.

    By rights though, Voted!, you really should forgive the idiot arsehole – it is an honest mistake to make. I feel at least 30 of those 49 singles should be #1’s.

    • It is shocking actually, the fact that almost everyone in the developed and undeveloped world has at some stage in their life, JUST NOT GOT ENOUGH, yet no one bought the single? I also agree that they surely should have had a number one . Maybe it has something to do with competing songs in the same week? I will look into that next week! RC I think you just lost your un-used muso crit position!
