Why this song and what’s the meaning?

According to Dexerto, Ellie finds a Billboard No 1 Hits book with a piece of paper indicating a code: a ’60s song meaning they have nothing in, a ’70s song indicating there’s new stock and ’80s songs mean there is trouble. This is how Bill and Frank, who are yet to arrive on show, communicate with Joel.

The Depeche Mode song ‘Never Let Me Down Again,' released in 1987, spelled trouble. However, the nature of this trouble is still unknown. The lyrics also evoke the story of the show, “I’m taking a ride with my best friend, I hope he never lets me down again. He knows where he’s taking me, taking me where I want to be.”
