They may not be as "influential" in the way many define the word, but they were one of the very few surviving bands of the "Madchester" era who stuck to a good quality of music. They stood out.

Personally - Joy Division. Closer is my favorite album, although Unknown Pleasures is one of the finest Debut Albums ever.

Historically - The Fall. Although I'm only into some of their music, especially their Early-Mid 80's work, it's their Independent spirit that is the most influential about them.

Another band that almost can be called influential that should be mentioned for standing out at least were The Chameleons. Their moody Guitar-driven music was often imitated by those who hardly went near their level. Sadly, they faded way pretty fast, but Script of the Bridge was a fine album.

I just read through this thread. I have a newfound respect for ADELE's legacy.
Also The Smiths.
