* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Joy Division has a strong cult following in UsefulNotes/NewZealand. When Ian Curtis died, a fan had painted a tribute to him [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lamnl0GpB51qbv0nvo1_500.jpg on a wall]] in UsefulNotes/{{Wellington}}, which still remains today, although it had been relocated and re-painted a few times.

* JerkassWoobie: Ian Curtis. Yes, by many accounts, he wasn't the easiest person to deal with, but given how much he suffered in life, it's nearly impossible not to feel sympathy for the guy. He had ''severe'' depression, very, ''very'' bad epilepsy (with regular tonic-clonic seizures), and of course, this was at a time when nobody understood it enough to effectively help him. The pills he was prescribed only served to exacerbate his depression, and the constant performing with the band only serve to make his illness worse. There's also the fact that Curtis frequently felt like his audience [[DancingBear only came to shows to watch him have epileptic fits]] instead of trying to get the message of his band's music. [[TheChewToy His life was]] [[{{Understatement}} not a very good one]].

* AwesomeMusic: Pretty much everything they did.



** Which is better, ''Music/UnknownPleasures'' or ''Music/{{Closer}}''? The latter is commonly considered the band's MagnumOpus. However, some prefer the less experimental, more rock-oriented style of the former and dislike the experimental, synth-heavy direction on the latter with its comparatively dry production.

* TheScrappy: Fans tend not to like Peter Hook due to his feuding with the other band members, seemingly being hell-bent on cashing in on the band's legacy and eradicating whatever mystique the band possessed.

* YokoOhNo: ''Touching from a Distance'' gets some critical reviews on Amazon from fans who don't appreciate Deborah Curtis exposing how cruel Ian could be to her.

Added DiffLines:

* CreatorBacklash: As mentioned above, Sumner and Hook (and Morris as well) were not fond of the production on their albums, claiming that Hannett took them too far away from their live sound. Hook and Morris eventually came around and are quite fond of the albums' overall sound now, but Sumner never has.
