Alt-right, neo-Nazi leader Richard Spencer claims Depeche Mode is 'official band of movement', band hit back

Alt-right, neo-Nazi leader Richard Spencer claims Depeche Mode is 'official band of movement'

Richard Spencer, the man with the most punch-worthy face on the internet and the self-claimed leader of the alt-right movement, has today claimed that Depeche Mode are the "official sound of the alt-right".

As Spencer was being escorted from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), he made the comments to a reporter. He has taken to Twitter to justify them and cite them as "jokes", before admitting Depeche Mode are his favourite band of all time.

A representative for Depeche Mode - known left-learners - has responded to the comments, telling Esquire: “That’s pretty ridiculous. Depeche Mode has no ties to Richard Spencer or the alt right and does not support the alt-right movement.”
