5. Depeche Mode - New Dress
The Mode's fifth album was released on 17 March 1986 and winds up with this incredible attack on the vacuous tabloid press. Dave Gahan relates various tragedies and sets them against to the papers' obsession with the Royal Family: "Jet airliner shot from sky / Famine horror, millions die / Earthquake terror figures rise / Princess Di is wearing a new dress."
