I'm a massive Smiths fan, but Radiohead is indeed the better band. No band has progressed and developed as much as Radiohead has since Pink Floyd.

I don't know too much about the Smiths, but I'm really getting into them. In fact, I just bought the Singles CD two days ago and I'm enjoying it hugely. Though I'm not sure if I love or hate Morrissey's voice, I immediately fell in love with Marr's guitar. Some of the most jangly, amazing, pop playing I've ever heard. The way it's looking right now, they could fall into my second favorite British band ever (though I don't want to say best). I seriously like them that much.

Oh and to whoever said Oasis is better, I'd like to say that Oasis is rubbish.

The Smiths are incredible, though Morrissey's singing is something of an acquired taste. I've got the 'Singles' and 'Hatful of Hollow' CD's and I think the next one I'll buy will be the debut.

Johnny Marr is definitely the most underrated guitarist of all time. No one ever gives him recognition despite his brilliant skills as a songwriter and rythym guitarist.

Yeah, inspiring generations of young musicians if an awful thing to do. Let's string up BB King and Miles Davis too.

I can understand not liking them, they're a difficult band to like, and have a strong message in their music... but "bad"? "awful"? Very infantile.

Are you serious? What has Britain come to? Then again, I can't really talk, as I live in America. But that was a disgraceful list.

Well, I bought the debut and 'The Queen is Dead' and listened to each start to finish. 'Queen' is overrated; the debut is better.

I reckon that Morresey was better when he was with the smiths but I can still listen to him now. As for best british band since the beetles... I dunno. We got pink floyd, Radiohead, Blur, Oasis (although I really hate oassis), can the stones be included technically they were around in the 60's with the beetles but theire still going?

Looks like I'm saying nothin that wasn't said before here so I'll stop...

Morressey is easily hatable but I like him for his lyrical genious and interesting vocals... That is all

While the debut is rough, honest, raw and down to earth, I really think The Queen is Dead is their greatest release. It's their best produced and most well written, I think, and Morrisseys lyrics are at their peak.
