So for most the past year I've been listening to a shitload of New Order. For a while I was even of the opinion that Ian Curtis' death was the best thing that could have happened to popular music. Yeah, it's extreme, I take it back. The past month, and maybe its circumstances, I've listened almost exclusively to Joy Division. That's quite an achievement considering their limited output. So I got around to wondering, who has had a greater impact on popular music, Joy Division or New Order? I honestly don't know.
