Trivia / Morrissey

Go To

  • Channel Hop: Too many to list, as Morrissey switched labels frequently. Also, in the 2000s and The New '10s he would have his EMI albums reissued on defunct labels owned by the company, such as Liberty and Major Minor.
  • Creator Breakdown: After losing his infamous lawsuit against Mike Joyce over The Smiths royalties, Morrissey recorded the song "Sorrow Will Come In the End," bemoaning the lawsuit. The song was cut from the UK release of Maladjusted for fear of legal action. That lawsuit, and not the supposed rift between Morrissey and Johnny Marr, is perhaps the main reason why a Smiths reunion is highly unlikely.

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: World Peace is None of Your Business was pulled from sale three weeks after its release following a disagreement between Morrissey and Harvest Records. The album isn't impossible to find, but it's no longer available from official channels and has disappeared from streaming sites. Morrissey has claimed that he'd find a new home for the album as soon as possible, but as of 2019, that hasn't happened.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: America is Not the World suggests that America would have to elect a black man, a woman, or an openly gay person as President to gain his respect. Certainly it must have sounded far-fetched back in 2004, but just one election cycle later the Democratic candidates would include two of the three, the former who would become the very next President.
