!! OMG throwback: 20 years ago there was a Depeche Mode-induced riot !!

David Gahan of Depeche Mode making everyone horny.

How hard has your favorite artist made you swoon? Was it ever so hard that you rioted?

You know, when someone can spin your personal unactualized inner-world into a ‘progressive techno pop’ song, it taps into something. And if you also happen to be attracted to them, it’s a double whammy!

Depeche Mode had fans up and down the wall twenty years ago, in March of 1990!

When they visited a Los Angeles record-store to sign autographs, an estimated 15 000 excited fans showed up.

Check out to see how it all turned out for these stylish young folks, after the jump!
