The lead singer of Joy Division, Ian Curtis, committed suicide in 1980. The three remaining members of the band came together, added a keyboardist, and restarted as New Order. Although Joy Division was a dark punk-rock band, New Order eventally broke away from their roots and made some of the greatest, most original dance and rock music from the 80's.

Although they were never that commercially successful, they had dominated many of the dance clubs of the 80s, with hits like Blue Monday (1983), True Faith (1987) and Bizarre Love Triangle (1986).

The band went on a hiatus during the 90s after the release of Republic (1993), but they have come back in recent years. Their 2001 album Get Ready was a return to their guitar based rock roots, and their most recent album Waiting For the Sirens' Call (2005) is considered to be just as great as their albums from the 80's.

Some of the best New Order songs:

Age of Consent
Blue Monday
True Faith
Bizarre Love Triangle
Every Little Counts
Touched By the Hand of God
Vanishing Point
60 Miles An Hour
Hey Now What You Doing
"Why that's some of the best music I've ever heard! What is that?!"

New Order is the best band from the 80s. They have many sweet albums that inclube Substance, Low Life, and Technique (my favorite). NO has way better music than the cRap we see nowadays on MTV. Heck MTV doesn't even play music videos b/c all the music today sucks? Or it just isn't as good as NO. Unfortunately, almost all of the population (USA) hasn't ever heard of New Order, but they have heard of 50 Cent. This makes me want to cry.
-Best songs include:
Bizarre Love Triangle
True Faith
Vanishing Point
Blue Monday
Perfect Kiss
Mr Disco
Sooner than you think
Round & Round
These are some of my favorites.
Person 1: Hey! Wanna go listen to some New Order?
Person 2: Nah, let's go listen to 50 Cent;
we hardcore gangstaz y0
Person 1: /Cries from sadness.
