The Smiths Band T-Shirt

 

The Smiths were an British rock band from Manchester, who formed in 1982. The band consisted of vocalist Morrissey, drummer Mike Joyce guitarist Johnny Marr, and bassist Andy Rourke. Critics called them the most important 80s alternative rock band to emerge from the British independent music scene. The NME named the Smiths the "most influential artist ever" in a 2002 poll, even topping the Beatles.

 

The band's focus on a guitar, bass, and drum sound, with their mix of 60s post-punk and rock, were a rejection of the synthesiser-based contemporary dance-pop that was common in the 80s. Marr's guitar-playing later influenced many Manchester bands, including the Stone Roses and Oasis. Morrissey's lyrics contained themes of ordinary people mixed with a mordant sense of humour.
