Depeche Mode - "It's No Good"

"It's No Good" is Depeche Mode's 32nd UK single, released on 31 March 1997 (15 April in the US), and the second single for the album Ultra. It reached number 5 in the UK Singles Chart.[3]

Description[edit]

The B-side is an instrumental, called "Slowblow". It was the last actual B-side from the Ultra era, making the album the only one by Depeche Mode to not have a non-remix/non-live vocal B-side track (Although if you exclude non-exclusive songs, Black Celebration can count as well).

On 15 May 1997, the band went on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and performed the song, a recording made available at the official Depeche Mode website.[4]

Music video[edit]

The music video depicts the band as a low-rent lounge act at a number of sleazy gigs. At the beginning of the video, Anton Corbijn makes a cameo appearance introducing the band at the club they perform at.
