How Did Depeche Mode Find Its Way Into Left 4 Dead 2?

The zombie apocalypse isn't where one expects to find product placement, so it was a little surprising to see Rochelle, one of the new Survivors in Left 4 Dead 2, sporting a pink Depeche Mode t-shirt.

Never heard of this band, they do look a bit pretty boyish, so I can already tell it aint my type of music, if it aint metal it aint hardcore enough.

WengYong3830d ago

I thought they should have been in Guitar Hero or Rockband, not Left 4 Dead!!!!

A HiFi3830d ago

They did the song 'Personal Jesus' which Johnny Cash covered along with Nice Inch Nail's 'Hurt' as his last single.

One zombie if it appears in Left 4 Dead 2 ... I would love to kill that one disgusting zombie over n over n over is "Simon Cowell".

Listen to my cries and place him in the game ... Simon Cowell and my Character's Bat ... gonna have good bashing time.

Your comment "if it ain't metal it ain't hardcore enough" made me chuckle.

This band kind of fits the console wars, eh?

So were different colours
And were different creeds
And different people
Have different needs
Its obvious you hate me
Though Ive done nothing wrong
Ive never even met you
So what could I have done
I cant understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand
People are people
So why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully
People are people
So why should it be
You and I should get along so awfully
Help me understand

dunno why they would appear in this game.. they not the right image?

if it's just a t-shirt ok.. mind you they do some good industrial style tracks.. so music could fit... or maybe they appear as infected.. and we can shoot them.. lol

Obviously Valve picked them because their music calms and then destroys zombies

Wonderfulwest3830d ago

I hate Depeche Mode, they think they are way beeter then they are. why couldnt valve get any better bands. I dont think Kadgagoogoo are busy lol

Ziriux3830d ago

Kadgagoogoo? With a name like that I don't think so lol jk. It's a zombie FPS lol, who cares what kind of music you put in it, as long as it's rock it's all well and good, no need to put a lot of money into what artist to put into the game, whatever is cheap, which tends to be this band at the moment.

A HiFi3830d ago

It's an extremely odd choice for sure...but I don't mind Depeche Mode.

This is why Left on Shelf 2 is gonna Suck

Ignore him; PS3 troll. Looking for reasons to put down Xbox games and failing.

This is about Left 4 Dead 2 not Left on Shelf 2. I'm looking forward to both though.
