"Useless" was the fourth single from the 1997 Depeche Mode album Ultra. It's a song I've never really listened to, but stumbling upon the video on YouTube I had a peek and a listen, and it's actually quite good. It's typical of the band in their 90's Nine Inch Nails phase, and although it's no match for "Barrel Of A Gun" from the same album, I do like it. And for those among you who are concerned with trivia, let's just add that Ultra was the first album without Alan Wilder who was the replacement member in the band when original songwriter Vince Clarke quit after the debut album Speak & Spell. As such, it was the start of the Depeche Mode's musical decline.
