The tenth greatest band of all time after Radiohead, Modest Mouse, Björk, The Flaming Lips, Pink Floyd, Beck, The Pixes, The Smashing Pumpkins, and Sonic Youth. A very influential band for pop-rock bands.
The Smiths were a great band, and Morrissey has a great solo career too. Not as great, but still good.
Best. Band. EVER. 'Nuff said?
The Smiths 0wnz0rz j00.
One of the best things to have come out of Thatcher's Britian.
"what difference does it make".
A band with a reputation for being whiny and dull, but from an objective viewpoint:
1. At least Morrissey meant it, Coldplay/Travis etc. sure as hell don't.
2. At least they had a wry sense of humour, they *knew* they were moping, the joke was on them
3. They were still quite, quite brilliant.
Morrissey just isn't as good solo as he was with Marr in the Smiths
perhaps the greatest band that ever lived. their reign over indie rock only lasted a bit over four years during the 80's but they were amazing, none the less. with their flamboyant, yet oddly dark, lead singer Morrissey (properly named Steven Patrick Morrissey)and they're other very talented musicians; including the notorious guitarist Johnny Marr, bassist Andy Rourke, and drummer Mike Joyce. they're music is likely to appeal to ANYONE, especially those who appreciate good lyrics.
the smiths beat the beatles in a recent poll of greatest british band (true statement).
A band from the 1980's.
Morrissey is the official Pope of Mope
(my personal favorite band)
"There Is a Light That Never Goes out"
"How soon is Now?"
"Girlfriend in a Coma"
The Smiths were quite simply the best band ever, in just the short time they were with us they changed the music scene forever. No-one can even come close to comparing to Morrissey's lyrics. The guy is a genius!
Also his solo career is still brilliant, some people say that he has declined but his songs are still better than anyone else's.......end of!
I Want The One I Can't Have
I could list everyone of the Smiths songs but these will do
One of the first Indie
bands of all time. A brit pop band with Morrisey as the lead singer
