Added DiffLines:

* EpicRocking: Their cover of "Sister Ray" isn't as long as the original, but it still fits this trope at 7:36. Their longest original songs are 6 minute examples that barely qualify such as "The Eternal", "Autosuggestion", "Atrocity Exhibition", "Heart and Soul", and "I Remember Nothing"

* LeadBassist: Peter Hook carried the melody on a Rickenbacker bass, not unlike [[{{Music/Yes}} Chris Squire]] or [[{{Music/Rush}} Geddy Lee]].
** In fact, Bernard Sumner once said he's more into "rhythm and chords" than melody.

As ''Joy Division,'' they recorded an EP, which was basically UsefulNotes/{{Punk}} with literary lyrics. This and playing around Manchester, brought the group to the attention of Tony Wilson, and they joined his record label ''Factory Records.'' After a month in the studio with producer Martin Hannett, who completely changed their sound, their debut album ''Music/UnknownPleasures'' was released in 1979. In between touring, their second album ''Music/{{Closer}}'' was released in 1980. Both were critically acclaimed.

However, the relentless touring had a negative effect on the band. Vocalist Ian Curtis had epilepsy, and sometimes suffered seizures during concerts, leading to their cancellation. His seizures were getting worse as the band continued touring, but he pushed himself to the point of exhaustion, as the band needed to tour to become better-known in the fairly exclusive music scene of the 1970's: He concealed the extent of his disability until the breaking point. His lack of sleep and alcohol abuse only added to his severe depression, and he committed suicide on 18 May 1980 (supposedly after watching ''Film/{{Stroszek}}'' on TV and listening to Music/IggyPop's ''Music/TheIdiot'').

The band are portrayed by actors in the movies: ''Film/TwentyFourHourPartyPeople'' and ''Film/{{Control}}.'' The former is a bio-pic of ''Factory Records'' head Tony Wilson, with ''Joy Division'' playing a major role, along with their manager Rob Gretton, in the first part of the film, with some remaining members throughout the second act as New Order personnel. The latter is a bio-pic of Ian Curtis himself, directed by photographer Creator/AntonCorbijn, who took a lot of the band's pictures, during their early years, and directed the music video for ''Atmosphere''.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: If ''24 Hour Party People'' and ''Control'' are any indication, the band's manager ''Rob Gretton'' seemed to have been one of these. He had an abrasive, aggressive personality, but also had his bands'/record labels' best interests at heart.

* OopNorth: Influenced by the crumbling Manchester of the 1970s.
* PuttingOnTheReich: The cover for ''An Ideal for Living'' featured a Hitler Youth drummer; their name itself is an allusion to a novel about the Nazis.



* PostPunk: one of the most important bands of the genre, and the band that immediately comes to mind for many when the term is mentioned.

* UpdatedRerelease: In the early '90s, the cover art for ''Substance'' was reworked on the European editions. For the 2015 re-issue, a couple extra tracks were added: "As You Said" and an alternate version of "Love Will Tear Us Apart" from the single's B-side were added, collecting all of the band's non-album tracks.

** ''Control'' endorses this view as well, showing Ian being given ''phenobarbital'' for his epilepsy, which even by the 1970s was considered less than ideal as a treatment option.

Since they had a made a pact to change their name if anyone left, the rest of the band members renamed themselves Music/NewOrder, alongside Morris' girlfriend (now wife), keyboardist and guitarist Gillian Gilbert, who helped formulate their new sound.
