HBO’s “The Last Of Us” has been taking over the world by storm with its unique storyline and impressive post-apocalyptic setting. Aside from delivering fan-favorite episodes, the series also featured old songs, including a classic from Depeche Mode.
More recently, the band finally reacted about the track being featured in the show and amassed massive attention from a new generation decades after its initial release.
According to NME, the song “Never Let Me Down Again” was featured at the end of the TV show’s first episode titled “When You’re Lost in the Darkness.” It was later played again on episode six.
The track originally appeared on the 1987 album “Music For The Masses” and despite getting released more than 30 years ago, it had its resurgence and saw a whopping 220.5% increase on streams in the United States.
Frontman Dave Gahan spoke to the outlet regarding his reaction, saying it was “nuts” and the band didn’t expect it to get big like that.
“It’s like it’s our time again and you can feel it in the air. It’s amusing to me, because we’ve f****** worked hard and we’re getting this weird recognition again of, ‘This band are important and cool and they deserve to be here,'” he added.

The singer also noted that it feels incredible to get that recognition and they’re fortunate to attract a new generation of audiences.
“I hope that anyone who discovered that song would be interested to get into everything else we’ve done,” he added.
