Band Name Origins:

  • New Order's manager Rob Gretton was reading an article in a newspaper, of which the headline was "The New Order of Kampuchean Liberation". It came down to a choice of the various people's suggestions, with some of the others being "Barney Steven and Peter" and "The Witchdoctors of Zimbabwe". Between the four of them (Barney, Steven, Peter, and Gretton), New Order drew 2-2 with The Witchdoctors of Zimbabwe. It is said that only Peter Hook's refusal to be part of a band called The Witchdoctors of Zimbabwe swung it in the favour of New Order. And the rest is history... Submitted by: Mike
  • Originally Joy Division, the band swore that if one of the members were to leave, the name would change. When the lead singer, Ian Curtis, committed suicide the band changed names... the new name "New Order" seems pretty self-explanatory. Submitted by: Kitty

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Every Second Counts"
The Funny Lyrics:
I think you are a pig
You should be in a zoo
Why They're Funny:
This is a sweet song about how someone is so great that every moment is important. And these are the 3rd and 4th lines of the song. Intrinsically rubbish then... This pathetic song writing is only excused by the fact that they released the version where Bernard Sumner can hardly get the words out for laughing at the poorness of the old toss they are foisting on the general public. Which makes it funnier.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Here comes love, it's like honey
You can't buy it with money
Why They're Nonsensical:
What are you talking about?!! You can buy honey w/ money!! Other than that it's a good song.
Submitted by: Roxxy
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Love is like honey
You can't buy it with money
Why They're Nonsensical:
This seems to be suggesting that you can't buy honey with money. Well, you can where I live.
Submitted by: Jenny Turner

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"True Faith"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Again and again I've taken too much
Of the things that cost you too much
Why They're Misrhymed:
One of the most elementary rules of lyric writing: You don't make a rhyme by using the same word twice! Or even the same two words.
Submitted by: R.S.K.

Insulting Song Lyrics:

"Every Little Counts"
The Insulting Lyrics:
Every little counts when I am with you.
I think you are a pig, you should be in a zoo.
I guess I should have known I'd end up on my own.
Every little counts when I am with you.
Every second counts when I am with you.
Even though you're stupid, I'll still follow you.
That smile upon your face, it always stays in place.
Every second counts when I am with you.
Why They're Insulting:
The first time I heard this, I almost peed myself! I was rolling, especially when Bernard starts laughing while he's singing.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

The Inappropriate Lyrics:

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"True Faith"
The Lyrics:
I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
The morning sun is a drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear
Sounds like the singer is making reference to a rough upbringing.
Submitted by: Cassandra

Song Lawsuits:

""Run 2""
John Denver sued the group, proclaiming the guitar break sounded to similar to his composition "Leaving on a Jet Plane". The case was settled out of court, but as such, the single was pulled out of print and has never appeared on any album. The versions on the compilations "The Best of New Order" and "Singles" that proclaim to be "Run 2" are actually "Run" a song found on their album "Technique" which "Run 2" was a remix of for single release.
