Disney Does Joy Division Tee

Thursday, January 26th, 2012
Disney brings Ian Curtis and Mickey Mouse together on a tee shirt Disney has decided to resurrect the spirit of Joy Division, front man Ian Curtis, with a Joy Division shirt. It's weird, to say the least, but is this really any different than every Hot topic stocking Misfits gear or re-hashing Cobain's iconic image? The signature "wave forms" image came along with Joy Division's 1979 Unknown Pleasures album, which is one of the most influential masterpieces in the late 1970's punk era. Curtis was an iconic front man who harbored a mysterious, chaotic presence until he ended his short life in 1980 at the age of 23. The cover design originally referenced CP 1919, the first-known radio pulsar captured in space in 1967, and has since then served as a symbol for Ian Curtis fans on everything from ripped up band shirts to modern day tote bags. Oddly enough, Disney isn't breaking any copyright laws with the "Waves Mickey Mouse" tee. However, given Disney's clean image the choice to embrace Joy Division seems very off putting. What's next, a talking G.G. Allin doll that self-mutilates on demand? UPDATE: Disney has pulled the t-shirts to review the situation further. If you didn't already scoop one up you'll be fighting with someone on eBay to pay $200 plus for one. Scooped via: Rolling Stone
