Description

"It's No Good" is a moodily rhythmic, perhaps even "sexy" song with a distinct lyrical hook in the chorus:

Don't say you want me
Don't say you need me
Don't say you love me
It's understood

It played well on American radio and MTV, and is a favorite live.[citation needed] The "Speedy J Mix" made it onto Remixes 81 - 04 in 2004, as did the "Club 69 Future Mix" (Remix Peter Rauhofer), which was previously promo only.

The B-side is another instrumental, called "Slowblow". It was the last actual B-side from the Ultra era, making the album the only one by Depeche Mode to not have a non-remix/non-live vocal B-side track (Although if you exclude non-exclusive songs, Black Celebration can count as well). The instrumental itself is slow and moody.

The music video for "It's No Good" was directed by Anton Corbijn, depicting the band as a low-rent lounge act at a number of sleazy gigs. An alternate video was recorded for "It's No Good" in 2001 as a screen projection for the Exciter Tour.

On 15 May 1997, the band went on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and performed the song, a recording made available at The official Depeche Mode website. It was the first time they performed a song on an American TV show since 1988, when they performed "Strangelove". The "Hardfloor Mix" of the song was featured briefly in the Friends episode "The One with Joey's Dirty Day". "It's No Good" was also used in an episode of Nash Bridges.

Electronic musician Brian Transeau created a remix for the song. That remix, though, was never released publicly.

Chevelle covered "It's No Good" on 2002's "Wonder What's Next Deluxe Version". The Dreaming also covered the song on their 2011 album Puppet.
