Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan has claimed his band never get the credit they deserve for their world-wide success.
The singer says that the band go largely unacknowledged in their native Britain â€“ even though theyâ€™re one of the few UK groups to really crack the American market.
He tells The Sun, â€œI donâ€™t get it. Weâ€™re a band that has come out of England, lasted and done well. But no one seems to notice and it does hurt.
â€œItâ€™s a struggle here to get recognition for what weâ€™ve achieved. Weâ€™re that oddball band that people donâ€™t know how to categorise. We donâ€™t fit the rock category and are not pop.â€
However, youâ€™ll get a chance to pay your respects when Depeche Modeâ€™s Best Of album is released next week.
