'[[Interlude No. 2 - Crucified]]' is the first of two unlisted instrumental interludes that appear on the 1990 [[Depeche Mode]] album <i>[[Violator]]</i>. It is also commonly referred to simply as 'Interlude #2', with '[[Interlude No. 1 - Mission Impossible|Interlude #1]]' appearing on <i>[[Music For The Masses]]</i> and '[[Interlude #3]]' appearing between '[[Blue Dress]]' and '[[Clean]]' on <i>Violator</i>. The interlude occurs between '[[Enjoy The Silence]]' and '[[Policy Of Truth]]'. Notably, the mostly instrumental interlude features a vocoded vocal by [[Andrew Fletcher]] ominously chanting the word "Crucified".

He has his own 'special' style. We used some of his playing as sound effects in one of the crossfade sections of ''Violator''."
