Depeche Mode have influenced many of today's popular recording artists, in part due to their innovative work, recording techniques and use of sampling; however they are still often thought of as an "Eighties band". Though influential in the modern electronic dance scene, Depeche Mode remain in the rock genre. Their name was taken from a French fashion magazine, "Depeche Mode", which translates to "Fashion Update" or "Fashion News Dispatch".
In the early 1980s, the band's popularity was largely confined to Europe (particularly Germany). However, in 1984 Depeche Mode made inroads into the U.S., spawning the North American-only releases of the compilations People Are People and 1985s Catching Up with Depeche Mode, the former featuring their first transatlantic hit "People Are People".
In the mid-1980s and 1990s, Depeche Mode's popularity in the U.S. grew, as did their influence on the emerging techno and house music scenes. The band's 1988 Music for the Masses tour culminated in a final concert at the Pasadena Rose Bowl with a sell-out attendance of 80,000 (the highest in 8 years for the venue).
In February 1990, "Enjoy the Silence", one of Depeche Mode's most successful singles to date, reached #8 in the U.S. charts (#6 in the UK). It won 'Best Single' at the Brit Awards. To promote their new album Violator, they held an in-store autograph signing in Los Angeles, which attracted 17,000 fans. The album (Top Ten in the UK and U.S.) and the subsequent World Violation Tour were further successes. To date, the album has gone triple platinum in the U.S., selling over three million units. Notably, 40,000 tickets for the New York, Giants Stadium show sold within 8 hours and 48,000 tickets for the Los Angeles, Dodger Stadium show sold within an hour of going on sale.
On October 17, 2005, Depeche Mode released their long awaited 11th studio album, Playing the Angel, and received very good reviews. Many fans felt this album was their true return to form.
