Cast Your Vote For Joy Division & New Order’s Entry Into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame
The heart and soul of post-punk and deserving candidates for this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
It’s that time of year again when music fans around the world wait with bated breath for the announcement of the latest inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This year, we want to throw our support behind two of the most influential and iconic bands of the post-punk era: Joy Division and New Order.
Joy Division, formed in 1976 in Manchester, England, redefined the musical landscape with their unique brand of brooding, introspective, and hauntingly beautiful music. With lead singer Ian Curtis’ powerful lyrics and distinctive baritone voice, Joy Division created a musical legacy that has inspired countless artists in the decades since. From their debut album, “Unknown Pleasures,” to their final recordings, Joy Division left an indelible mark on the music world and continues to be widely celebrated as one of the most influential bands of all time.
After Ian Curtis’ untimely death in 1980, the remaining members of Joy Division formed New Order, a band that would become one of the most successful and enduring acts of the 80s and 90s. With their blend of post-punk, electronica, and pop, New Order continued the legacy of Joy Division while charting their own musical journey, producing classic tracks such as “Blue Monday,” “True Faith,” and “Bizarre Love Triangle.”
We believe that both Joy Division and New Order deserve recognition in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame not just for their musical contributions, but for their cultural impact as well. They helped shape the sound of post-punk and alternative music, and their influence can still be heard in today’s music. These bands are true pioneers and legends in their own right, and their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame would be a testament to their enduring legacy. So, let’s give them the recognition they so rightfully deserve and ensure that their music continues to inspire generations to come.
