Joy Division did'nt influence the rave scene but New Order who rose from JD's ashes certainly did influence rave and Manchester based music re dance beats being used into a guitar based template. So this gave rise to bands such as Spacemonkeys and Happy Mondays etc.

Joy Division influenced the Post Punk era a lot more with their potent atmosphere and brooding lyrics.

Our fellow Mancunian Right-Track could add a better explanation possibly.

Default Joy Division

My favourites are:

She's Lost Control
Disorder
Dead Souls
Atmosphere
24 Hours
Shadowplay
Love Will Tear Us Apart (probably the best break up lyrics ever)

I personally prefer "Unknown Pleasures" although the "Peel Sessions" had a close place in my heart for many a years. "Closer" did have quite a bit of feeling, but I still have to go with the other two.

Day Of The Lords has always done it for me. When he bellows out 'When will it end' for the last time it makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

Yes they were Punk If you hear their early stuff such as the Wasrsaw EP.
No, it was not...and I have that EP. It was darker, MUCH darker than most things of that time period. Not "punk" in any way.

Quote:
And It's pretty tacky to associate them with the Goth movement because ever goth band has tried to rip them off and every goth band did it horribly.
I seriously doubt "every goth band" ripped them off?

Bauhaus did? how so? weren't they out Before JD?

Christian Death did? how so?

How did Killing Joke rip them off?

Or the Bolshoi? Red Lorry yellow Lorry? The March Violets? Alien Sex Fiend?


Quote:
Plus goth music just sucks.
maybe Now? yes...not then, and certainly it all "doesn't suck".

LOTS of wonderful bands from the genre(mostly pre 1992) that are excellent, and fun to listen to. Some of the bands today could learn a thing or 2 from these goth bands of yesteryear?

May I suggest:

Sisters Of Mercy
The Bolshoi
Christian Death
The Shroud
Virgin Prunes
Nick Cave


for you to listen to?
