New Order – One of Our Top Alternative Bands
New Order is another band in the post-punk era that created the groundwork for alternative music. The former members of Joy Division blended dance music with electronics to create outstanding songs such as Blue Monday and True Faith.
New Order has delivered several quality albums. Other than Depeche Mode, New Order has been perhaps the most consistent electronic dance band.
