i hate them too... i have nothing against depressing music (being a manics fan)... but agree that they sound the same.. a bit like an unhappy choir boy

i like em, no shame. How can you not love the lyrics to Frankly, Mr Shankly ? Comic genius, albeit dark. Although Morrisey has gone up his own a-hole lately

Love them, best band that ever came out of the 80s, pure genius.

love them
and joy division.

definitely a particular era though, I think you only appreciate them if you were an angst ridden teenager when they first appeared.

theres nothing like a good Smiths track to cheer me up. Keep thinking na lifes not as bad as all that

HappyHuggy Fri 17-Jun-05 12:30:06

i have no idea who they are........

katierocket Fri 17-Jun-05 12:36:10

that's a joke, right?

HappyHuggy Fri 17-Jun-05 12:36:47

nope - i have absolutly no idea who your talking about

MumOfTroubledTeen Fri 17-Jun-05 12:37:39

You'll recognise a couple of their songs, I'll bet, Huggy. We're the same age (give or take a year or so) and I know who they are.

HappyHuggy Fri 17-Jun-05 12:39:20

MumOfTroubledTeen Fri 17-Jun-05 12:40:34

i know

Rhubarb Fri 17-Jun-05 12:40:53

Hate 'me, hate 'em, hate 'em! Wow I used to think that Custy and I shared no common interests in music whatsoever! I still far better taste, obviously, but I agree that The Smiths should be put out of their misery as should Radiohead. Yeah yeah, you're so bloody depressed and life's a bitch, geez GET OVER IT! Whingeing whining bloody millionaires!

havent you got a 13 year old?


TinyGang Fri 17-Jun-05 12:41:43

I liked the smiths All teenage angst, misery and despair with the odd gladioli slung in for good measure. Great guitarist (Johnny Marr)too. I reckon it was only tongue in cheek anyway.

Cam Fri 17-Jun-05 12:41:46

HappyHuggy, I'm really surprised that Morissey has never, not even once, impinged on you consciousness?
