Joy Division were an English rock band that formed in 1976 in Salford, Greater Manchester. With their dark, cavernous sound and use of guitars, throbbing bass, and electronics, they pioneered the post-punk sound of the late 1970s. In May 1980, after the suicide of its lead singer, Ian Curtis, the remaining members reformed as New Order and went on to achieve much critical and commercial success.

Though the group achieved only modest success during their career, and released only two official albums, they have since been acclaimed as one of the most inventive and influential bands of their era. Thom Jurek writes, "They left just a small bit of music and an echo that still rings".
