    ...I love this song.
    Although, if he had not died, New Order probably wouldn`t have made Blue Monday. And that would`ve been bad...

    to clue you in, your favorite bands like my chemical romance and panic at the disco wouldn`t exist with curtis and joy division.

    stop lying, yes they are your favorite bands.

    "The former Joy Division singer would have been 52 today. Still, he`ll always be known for Love Will Tear Us Apart"
    or to the rest of us:
    He will always be known as that guy that some people had heard of, but the rest of us don`t have a clue.

    She`s Lost Control is one of the awesomest clips. Great song, and Ian`s "dancing"... well it all kinda gives me shivers, cuz its that good.
    In my opinion.

    Can`t believe most of you ignorant smeggers don`t know who Ian Curtis was. Try typing Joy Division or New Order into your searchbars. It`s what the Internerd was built for. Well - mostly for looking at gimpporn actually, but it serves this purpose as well.
    Also still can`t understand how at the Brits in 2005 Angels by Robbie Williams beat LWTUA as the best song of the last 25 years. And he accepted the award. Cheeky Git

    To actually that current bands wouldn`t exist without Joy Division is just beyond dumb.
    Joy Division is one of those bands that people try to force on you. Not unlike U2, Rush, and Radiohead.

    ^yeah, no, but certain bands have been more influential than others in shaping modern music.
    so not that current bands wouldn`t exist, but that the sounds of today might be something quite different (and yes possibly better).

    As much as I hate Joy Division, I hate people who listen to "emo" music now and don`t know about the band.

    also, as a point of reference, joy division is alot better then the smith`s, who most emo bands site as their influence, so you can`t blame ian for the crappy music that exists today

    "I can`t believe someone stole his grave marker."
    Yeah, what`s up with that? When did that happen? I just heard about it today.


    Also: everyone who`s said they don`t know who Ian is is under the "13-17" category, not surprisingly.

    If he hadn`t kicked his own bucket and carried on, maybe my chemical romance wouldn`t exist

    I can not believe how many of you don`t know who Ian Curtis is, I`ve known who he is since i was 10. I love this song and it`s a shame he`s gone, but I suppose if he was still here, we wouldn`t have one of the biggest dance songs ever.
