On March 20, 1990, Depeche Mode took over The Wherehouse record store in West Hollywood for the signing of their new album “Violator”

I was not there for this event, but I sure wish I would have been. I’ve been a Depeche Mode fan for many years now and to have been there with over 15,000 people, would have been epic.

The video above is a compilation of KROQ 106.7 coverage of everything that went on that night. It’s a bit long at just over 18 minutes, but worth watching if you are as big of a Depeche Mode fan as I am.

Take note of the different news anchors in the video, flubbing the bands name.
