Twenty-Five Years Ago Today: Meat Is Murder Hits #1


“A Crack On The Head Is What You Get For Asking…”

On This Date, February 23rd, in 1985: The Smiths’ Meat Is Murder was the #1 album in the UK.  Meat Is Murder is a fantastic album just crammed with amazing songs like “What She Said,” “That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore,” “How Soon Is Now?” and “The Headmaster Ritual,” but my favorite is “Barbarism Begins at Home.” I’m going to celebrate the spirit of The Smiths by playing this album really loud as soon as I get home today! Smiths!
