In 1980 Joy Division released Love Will Tear Us Apart, which posthumously became their signature song. Lead singer Ian Curtis wrote the song while his marriage was falling apart. The song was inspired by the 1975 Captain & Tennille hit Love Will Keep Us Together. When Love Will Tear Us Apart was released in April 1980, it - like other releases from Joy Division - it got little attention. A month later Curtis hanged himself. Joy Division never continued without Curtis, and the bands remaining three members formed the group New Order. The tombstone of Ian Curtis is inscribed with "Love Will Tear Us Apart" as an epitaph

Love is not supposed to tear us apart. Love is something that should help us grow and be together, even. I think that there are plenty of people here who feel the same. It is a tough task, talking about love, but I am here to do it. I know that it is not easy to love, but love is not supposed to be about getting hurt. The more that we love, the happier that we should get, am I right?
