Love Will Tear Us Apart

This haunting ode to romantic melancholia was the crowning moment in Joy Division's brief career, but Ian Curtis wasn't around to savor its success. "Love Will Tear Us Apart" was released just prior to the British postpunk group's 23-year-old frontman hanging himself two days before the band's scheduled first U.S. tour. "Ian's influence seemed to be madness and insanity," said Joy Division guitarist Bernard Sumner — who, with his surviving bandmates, carried on as the worldwide successful New Order.
