    Is there such a use? If yes, why do you use it instead of "despite the fact that"? If no, what about these sentences?

    - Despite of the fact that you listen their music or not, there are some things that are eternal, which is obvious in this case.

    bbc.co.uk

    - Somebody who has yet to pack it in is Howard Dean. He is defiantly staying in this race, despite of the fact that he's done poorly just about everywhere.
