Basildon’s New Wave-Nodisco heroes, Depeche Mode, are to be inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2020, along with Nine Inch Nails, T. Rex, Whitney Houston, The Notoriious B.I.G., and The Doobie Brothers.

This was DM’s third time being nominated since becoming eligible back in 2006 (note: artists are eligible for nomination into the Rock Hall beginning 25 years following their first release). The band had earlier received nominations for both the 2017 and 2018 classes.

Former members Vince Clarke and Alan Wilder are to be included in the induction, along with the current lineup of Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, and Andy Fletcher.

“We’re honoured to be included as one of this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, and to stand alongside the other incredible acts in the Rock Hall and those joining this year. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported us and our music over the years,” the synthpop band tweeted a few days ago.

The induction ceremony is set for 2 May at the Public Auditorium in Cleveland, Ohio, and will be broadcast live on HBO. Who will induct Depeche Mode? Siouxsie Sioux maybe?

But the biggest question of all: Will Vince Clark and Alan Wilder join DM for a live performance?
