Reliving the legends of the past: Depeche Mode

I come here today to talk about a classic by many of the young is not known or has been forgotten, Depeche Mode.

Depeche Mode was formed in 1980 is a British electronic music band, but in particular synth pop and new wave.The band began in 1977 but only completed his training even in 1980. It currently has 12 studio albums, 9 compilation albums, and 2 live albums, plus much more singles and remixes.
Actually I'd prefer not to focus too much on the history of this band, because it is interesting how far their influence extended(they influenced bands like The Cure, The Killers, Deftones, Franz Ferdinand, Linkin Park, Pet Shop Boys, and many others), many covers of Depeche Mode were made, and sometimes many do not even know are covers of this band. So I picked a few tracks that I find incredible touched by Depeche Mode and their covers that I selected.

I'll start with one of the most acclaimed band's songs, Enjoy The Silence:

This song has many covers I would list all day, so I chose particularly the version I like the most that was done by the band Failure (my favorite band), the interesting thing is that , the members of Depeche Mode were reportedly very pleased with the album, and track with the Failure Particularly, Andrew Fletcher (co-founder of depeche mode) Actually he said that prefers their cover over his band's original version.

 I chose another song of Depeche Mode that I really enjoy is
Shake The Disease:

 and the version made ​​by Odyssey Band from the album "Re-Inventing the Past" (2010):

Another classic People Are People:

and a really cool cover made ​​by Dope:

and finally Personal Jesus:

 and the version made ​​by Marilyn Manson:

Well I would like to post so many covers of Depeche Mode but it would be too extensive, but I leave here the link to the wiki with most of the covers made ​​of Depeche Mode, I believe you surely have recognized several bands of the list

List of covers:
