    Upping his street cred even more is DC, last time it was Florence and the machine, this time the Smiths, whatever next?

    Oh, come off it. Marr obviously said that in a tongue-in-cheek way. Read it without the name Johnny Marr attached to it, maybe imagine it was Charlie Brooker who said "David Cameron, stop saying that you like The Smiths, no you don't. I forbid you to like it" and it's a totally different story. And when it comes to Morrissey, well...he never changes, does he...

    You do realise that there is at least one typographical/grammatical error in your signature, don't you?
    I don't have a problem with people typing badly by mistake, not knowing the spelling or punctuation, or whatever, it just annoys me when people seem to deliberately type badly or type in chav. It's really not that hard to try to type properly. I'm not one of those anal grammar nazi people who correct people on every single mistake they make, but it just annoys me when people don't even try.

    Does professing to like the Smiths really do anything positive to ones street cred?

    I mean lets face it, the Smiths produced fairly geeky pop music. DC was at university in the eighties so it is quite likely that he was a genuine fan. I don't think it is on the same lines as Gordon Brown saying that he liked the Artic Monkeys and then failing to know even one of their songs or albums.

    Thats a bit harsh, judging people by their tastes in music

    So what you said about these terms being contradictory and also the fact that you brought them up even though they are devoid of any meaning says WHAT about your point? Oh yeh, that you dont have one.

    Your other points are a waste of text.

    End of story now.
    I think it speaks volumes about you that you cut most of my post out.

    Glad I'm not the only one who thinks you're posting codswollop of the first order.

    David Cameron says he likes the Smiths, Morrissey reacts angrily and slams him... who actually cares apart from David Cameron and Morrisey?

    David Cameron revealed that he liked the Smiths years ago. Indeed, it's rather more unlikely that anyone here would like the Smiths - they were the music of the PM's generation, not ours.

    They're one of my favourite bands.

    Morrissey is a classic obstreperous, pretentions, cocky hippy. I can't take him seriously at all; The Smiths were amazing but his solo career is a giant pile of gash.
    Indeed, he is a pretentious ****, but why he slams him for liking his own band I don't understand. Such a tosser.

    Let's face it, the whole thread was hardly worth replying to now, was it?

    Yet we both did.

    And if my first post was pointless, why did you then reply to it? Some of my posts are me sounding off, or posting my opinion. It doesn't bother me if no-one responds to them, but honestly it has made my day that you have, and have now spent the next 4 posts in a 'debate' with me.

    Now, 5 replies on, I suspect you still won't leave it alone.

    Presumably on the basis that the last to post wins the argument

    This one, for Morrissey (as usual) is more foot in mouth than hand in glove.

    I adore The Smiths and I think Morrissey is one of the most influentical lyricists i have ever heard. Yet Morrissey is the biggest pile of ****e since the start of time! His new album is purely sickening. My Dad sawhim in a Pub and he used his nephew to tell people not to talk to him! You have got to love someone who sticks his two finger up to social convention and "drop their trousers to the world".
