Gacked from holyoutlaw. No surprises with the results.

You scored as Joy Division. Manchester's Joy Division remain one of the most popular and influential post-punk bands, perhaps thanks in part to singer Ian Curtis' martyr-like status following his suicide in 1980. Their music is a dark, atmospheric, almost gothic sound which is complemented perfectly by Curtis' tortured lyrics, best heard on 1980's "Closer".
