''The song has nothing to do with relationships. It's about the concept of fleeing from reality and the evil awakening afterwards. Any kind of fleeing. Drugs, alcohol, or whatever." - Martin Gore
"There was one instance regarding 'Never Let Me Down Again' when two separate people came up to me after a show one night and said, "I really like that song". One of them thought it was a gay anthem and the other one thought it was a drug anthem. They both loved the song, so that's fine by me." - Martin Gore
''Never Let Me Down Again'' was a stand-out track. It was especially effective when we played live. I think it is one of our classic old time tracks.'' - Martin Gore
