While creating something you’re truly passionate about, you’re never really sure whether it will work out or not. Throughout history, the biggest success stories almost always have one thing in common – their main goals were never to become iconic, the goal was to create art as well as something people would truly enjoy. So, this list compiled that dives into the past of the most famous bands in history while looking at how all of them looked before fame struck – from the innocent Bee Gees to hardcore partying with Metallica – this list shows how life was for these iconic bands before they ever dreamed about becoming as big as they did.
1. Depeche Mode
Depeche Mode was formed in 1977 by two schoolmates, Vince Clarke and Andy Fletcher, who were influenced by the band, The Cure. Back in the day, the band was called No Romance In China. Funnily enough, Fletcher later commented he was in the band simply because he played the guitar and had a bass so they forced him to play. We bet he did not feel sorry for his decision when later on, Depeche Mode became one of the most influential bands of all time.
