Charlize Theron continues her reign as action movie heroine, kicking major ass in a second trailer for “Atomic Blonde.” “I chose this life,” she says at the top of the preview. “And someday, it’s going to get me killed.” After slaying a bunch of men in a fancy hotel room, she pours herself a drink and says, “but not today.” Also Read: Charlize Theron Suffered Cracked Teeth, 3 Root Canals From 'Atomic Blonde' Stunts The whole trailer is full of brutal, visceral action set to an acidic ’80s playlist of Depeche Mode with the occasional Kanye West mashup. »

Nazi fop Richard Spencer can’t stop getting punched in the face, whether literally (by random humans on the street), journalistically (by investigators who uncovered he gets his money from an actual fucking cotton plantation), or even figuratively, by the very pop-culture artists he claims to love. First he confessed his life-long passion for Depeche Mode, to which the band replied with a curt, “Fuck off.” Then he attempted to claim Cabaret’s “Tomorrow Belongs To Me” for the “alt-right,” to which the song’s author’s nephew responded with another “fuck off.”
This same cycle has occurred with the greater “alt-right,” Spencer’s loose coalition of white supremacist trolls, who keep making polite overtures to pop-culture entities that want nothing to do with them. While the “alt-right” do have their own subset of bespoke, racist music, language, and media figures, they also are attempting to live in the world »

Depeche Mode performed their rousing new song "Where's the Revolution" on The Tonight Show Wednesday. Over Martin Gore's smoldering guitar, Andrew Fletcher's mechanized synths, singer Dave Gahan delivered the song with ominous flare. "You've been pissed on for too long/ Your rights abuse/ Your views refused," he sang.
"Where's the Revolution" will appear on Depeche Mode's upcoming album, Spirit, out March 17th. James Ford (Florence and the Machine, Arctic Monkeys) produced the record, which marks the band's first since 2013's Delta Machine.

On Thursday, white nationalist Richard Spencer was asked at the Conservative Political Action Conference (Cpac) if he liked rock music, and to Olivia Nuzzi of New York magazine, Spencer responded by declaring that British electronic rock band Depeche Mode is the “official band of the alt-right.” The only problem? The feeling is most definitely not mutual. In a statement released to Gothamist and several other media outlets, a rep for Depeche Mode called Spencer’s comments, and stated that Depeche Mode “has no ties to Richard Spencer or the alt right and does not support the alt right movement.” Also Read: Newsweek Retracts. »
