20 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Meat Is Murder

Meat Is Murder was the Smiths' second studio record, following on from the success of their self-titled debut and the Hatful of Hollow compilation.

Released just over 31 years ago, it has remained a much-loved record amongst fans and still sounds fresh and vital today.
