    "it sounds like they never actually listened to joy division" I guess that's the irony. [2]

    It's not about Joy Division. It's about a drunken night the lead singer had with his girl friend. They danced on a table to Let Love Tear Us Apart. That is the irony. The song and the lyrics are more about being happy in shit situations. The So HAPPY bits could even be taken sarcastically should you desire.
