|Depeche Mode singles chronology|
It is the first Depeche Mode single whose lyrics are written by Dave Gahan. It is also the first Depeche Mode single that's not written by Martin Gore since "Just Can't Get Enough" in 1981 which was written by Vince Clarke and the first Depeche Mode single ever to be co-written with non-Depeche Mode members (Andrew Phillpott and Christian Eigner wrote the music).
The B-side for the single is "Better Days", a short song with an industrial-punk feel to it.
The song "Suffer Well" was nominated in the category of "Best Dance Recording" at the 2007 Grammy Awards but lost to Justin Timberlake's "SexyBack". The single version of the song adds a drum track to the song, and is shorter.
The video was filmed by Anton Corbijn in mid-December 2005 in California, following DM's appearance at the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas on December 11, 2005. It was his first music video for the band, excluding tour projections and promo videos, since "Useless" in 1997. The video started to air on TV in early February.
The video features a cameo appearance by Gahan's wife, Jennifer, once as the angel and once as herself. Another cameo is by the band's manager, Jonathan Kessler, who plays Gahan's limo driver. Other highlights include Gore as a bride and Fletcher as a groom. It also features the disco ball seen in the cover art of "Suffer Well". Some[who?] say the video is a metaphor for Gahan's drug troubles in the 1990s that almost led to suicide.
In December 2005, Gahan recorded a special vocal track for the song; with help from EA Games, the lyrics were translated into "Simlish" (the language of the game The Sims 2) and later appeared in The Sims 2: Open For Business as one of the games new songs. Other New Wave songs were also remixed in Simlish, and added to the game, such as Howard Jones's "Things Can Only Get Better".
"Suffer Well" reached number 38 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. It reached number 1 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, the band's seventh song to top this chart. "Suffer Well" was added to the playlist of Xfm London on 27 February 2006. However, it failed to make the playlist of any BBC Radio station. Despite this, it entered the UK charts at number 12, beating the position achieved by "A Pain That I'm Used To".

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
