Get Into Depeche Mode's Top 10 Ginormous Billboard Hot 100 Hits!

"It was only a question of time, but on Saturday (Nov. 7), Depeche Mode will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2020. Other artists who are receiving the honor are Nine Inch Nails, The Notorious B.I.G., T. Rex, The Doobie Brothers, and Whitney Houston.

The celebrated English synth-pop band launched onto the music scene in 1981 with debut album Speak & Spell, with third single, the upbeat "Just Can't Get Enough," finding footing on Billboard's Dance Songs chart. From there, the band -- featuring Dave Gahan on lead vocals and Martin Gore penning the brooding lyrics and lending his own pipes -- continued to find and sustain success, with 1990's Violator peaking at No. 7 on the Billboard 200, 1991's Songs of Faith and Devotion topping the chart, and Depeche Mode's latest and 14th studio album, 2017's Spirit, peaking at No. 5.

The band has also found success on the Billboard Hot 100. Ahead of Depeche Mode's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Billboard takes a look at their 10 biggest Hot 100 hits.

Depeche Mode's Biggest Billboard Hot 100 hits ranking is based on actual performance on the weekly Billboard Hot 100, through the Nov. 7, 2020, ranking. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, eras are weighted to account for different chart turnover rates over various periods." - Billboard.com
