Earlier today before he was kicked out of CPAC (the Conservative Political Action Conference), white nationalist Richard Spencer was asked if he likes rock music, at which point he declared that Depeche Mode is the "official band of the alt-right," according to New York magazine's Olivia Nuzzi.

We reached out to the band's label, and a rep told Gothamist, "That is a pretty ridiculous claim. Depeche Mode has no ties to Richard Spencer or the alt right and does not support the alt right movement."

Earlier this month, in fact, the band was the latest to compare Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler when frontman Dave Gahan declared in a video interview (which you can watch here), "The things that he’s saying sound very similar to what someone was saying in 1935. That didn’t work out very well! The things that he’s saying are cruel and heartless and promoting fear."

Here is Richard Spencer's list of Depeche Mode albums, ranked.

Update: Spencer said he was joking. Lol?
