They arent the best British band since Beatles.

I think the best brittish band since The Beatles have got to be The Stone Roses, they do everything for me. The Second Comming i think is just as good as there first album.
I really hate both Morrisey and The Smiths..

radiohead. best brittish band ever. but the smiths were rather excellent even if morriseys an arrogant prick. but the ruled they did.
there are doors that open
there are doors that dont

A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who aren't close-minded morons.

There's music in England that is derived from the Beatles and then music that is more Rolling Stones-ish. I would say the Smiths are most definitely on the side of the Stones. I'm a big fan of both camps, to be honest.

Morrisey's lyrics are amazing. Johnny Marr's got good style.

I'd say they're a great band, but unlike other bands to recently make it in the US (Radiohead, Coldplay, Oasis, to name a few) they really never "broke it big" here...

So I'm gonna have to say no.

And the Gallaghers and McGhee, the "Oasis Svengali" aren't twats?

Better than The Beatles. They're music is really seems to connect with alot of people, myself included...no one likes their debut LP as much as i do, never understood why...
as far as Morrissey, he's one of my favorites. Hes an incredible man, but i could see why hes a very 'love him or hate him' kinda guy...

EDIT: best british band since Beatles...also:
New Order
My Bloody Valentine
Washburn x10 "Washy"
Ibanez S470DXQM "Kimberly"
BC Rich NJ strat "Sydney"
Roland Cube 60
Vox V847
Boss OD1
Boss CE2
Digitech Death Metal
Russian Big Muff PI
DOD Deth Metal
Ibanez SM9

^^ [I absolutely adore their debut album, its easily on a par with the later stuff, despite being more despondent and edgy]

The Smiths are easily my favourite band, including the Beatles, and I think it's hard to argue that they are not also one of the BEST (if we're speaking in terms of importance, ingenuity and technical ability).

While I can understand, though not necessarily agree with , anyone who dislikes Morrissey's vocals, or even their sound and songs in general, in terms of quality I think they must surely be respected for what they achieved. Morrissey's lyrics are witty and observant, while Marr's guitar playing and compositions are easily some of the most complex and original ever attempted by a British guitar band. Not to mention the impossibly tight and steady rhythm section, who are so frequently overlooked.

So I suppose whether you like them or not is purely a matter of choice, but bear in mind that without the Smiths there would be no Noel Gallagher, Alex Turner, Jarvis Cocker, John Squire, etc etc etc... And for the most part you can take THEIR word for it.
"Scratch my name on your arm with a fountain pen - this means, you really love me" - Morrissey, 1985
