30 years of unknown pleasures

Unknown Pleasures was the first album of the post-punk band Joy Division's, released in 1979.

Joy Division pioneered the post-punk movement of the late 1970s. Post-punk laid the groundwork for alternative rock by broadening the range of punk and underground music, It found a firm place in the 1980s indie scene, and led to the development of genres such as gothic rock, industrial music and alternative rock.

In other words: post-punk movement basically exchanged Sex Pistols' message of "fuck you all", by a much more contemporary "we're all fucked anyway".

And the message still lives on.
