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.

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

"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.

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

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

^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).

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.

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

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.

My dads called Ian Curtis. Random and confusing, especially when I saw his biography!

Speaking of favorite bands, Fancy, why is Brittney your icon?

I`m a big fan of self-destructive girls who flaunt their lingerie at society.

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.

...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...
