Love Will Tear Us Apart is the most well known song by Joy Division. The lyrics were written and sung by the band's vocalist, Ian Curtis, who committed suicide a month before the song was released in June 1980.

It was originally released in June 1980, and after Curtis' suicide that May, became the band's only chart hit, reaching number 13 on the UK charts. The band broke up after his death and reformed as New Order.​

Love Will Tear Us Apart was written in August and September of 1979 and was debuted when the band supported Buzzcocks on their UK tour in September and October of 1979. The lyrics are perceived to reflect the problems in Ian Curtis' marriage to Deborah Curtis, as well as his general frame of mind in the time leading up to his suicide.​

The song has remained popular and was listed by the NME as the best single of all time in 2002. The song was listed by the Rolling Stone Magazine at number 179 in its top 500 songs of all time.​
