Morrissey Sucks

September 25, 2012

I hate The Smiths. Always have. I also hate Morrissey, both because I hate The Smiths, and because, as far as I can tell, he’s an insufferable prick.

So thanks to E.V. Grieve, I now have some good ammo (beyond the already ample evidence that The Smiths’ music sucks, and that Morrissey is an insufferable prick).

Apparently, some time ago, when he was 17, “Steve Morrissey,” the self-same insufferable prick, penned the following in a submission to NME:

E.V. Grieve noted the entertaining fact that Morrissey called the Ramones “a bumptious band of degenerate no-talents,” which, perhaps, is fair enough. Personally, I find more entertaining Morrissey’s comment that the Ramones have an “army of duped fans” who fail to realize that the band “do[es] not deal in subtlety or variation of any kind” and

The Ramones have absolutely nothing to add that is of relevance or importance and should be rightly filed and forgotten.

Well said, Steve. Bravo. And if someone were to write that about The Smiths, I’d wholeheartedly agree. As it stands, this unearthed little ditty confirms that I was right about Morrissey all along. Prick.

    googled ‘i hate the smiths’ and got this. so obviously you agree with me 🙂 was just observing that the disappointingly boring lord of the rings sound track is comprised of the same monotoned note palette as every smiths song ever written. not a music theorist, but i’m betting the interval that’s flogged to death is the major third. but maybe not. it’s like chinese music, which is black notes. anyway, that’s all either of them have. it’s like a certain kind of water torture invented by the same people. the smiths never needed to exist, because the chinese had both water torture and music with those intervals already covered. but i guess the smiths could be credited with the innovation of having combined the two.

    I love the Smiths. Morrissey is very outspoken and does cause problems most of the time, never the less, I love his music.
