nobody doubts a Smiths reunion would sell out arenas
Yeah but the thread isn't what sucks about The Smiths...

Not if they booked as The Triumphant Return of JFK Jr, with special guest star Donald Trump! Tickets would sell out in seconds to the QAnon crowd!

Without question, the single biggest and most important impact Coronavirus has had on the world.

As for Morrissey, I don't think I've ever heard him, so from me, he gets a clear pass: doesn't suck at all.
Blessed are you then, my son.

Quite happily I would imagine. And again, thread is not about The Smiths but Morrissey himself. Personally, I can't get past his whiny, I'm-so-sad-everyone-is-against-me self-pitying college kid lyrics. But what sucks about him most is his quote that Hitler was left-wing. Jesus Christ on a jetski, completely out of control heading towards a cruise liner and unable to make course corrections in time, while a pod of dolphins close their eyes and wait!
