Oberkorn (Luxembourgish: Uewerkuer pronounced [ˈuə̯vɐkuɐ̯]) is a town in the commune of Differdange in south-western Luxembourg. As of 2005, the town has a population of 4,493.

The new wave band Depeche Mode released a song called "Oberkorn (It's a Small Town)", which refers to the town, as a B-side on their 1982 single "The Meaning of Love". In addition, Depeche Mode also used "Oberkorn (It's a Small Town)" as a prelude to "My Secret Garden" from A Broken Frame album when recorded live at the Hammersmith Odeon, now named HMV Hammersmith Apollo.

The famous Spanish techno group OBK, from the song by Depeche Mode, also makes an indirect reference to the town.

Oberkorn is a British-made model of analogue step sequencer made by Analogue Solutions. [1]
