Unknown Pleasures at 40

June 15, 1979 ~ Joy Division releases their debut album. It goes nowhere but over the years, it’s become one of the most important and influential pieces of work ever. The Cure, Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins — even Cobain — all mention Ian Curtis and Joy Division at some point and Unknown Pleasures is now considered by many to be one of the greatest albums of all time.
