Having influenced a huge number of artists, from hip young bands like Franz Ferdinand, The Ordinary Boys (named after a Morrissey song), The Libertines and more established acts such as Oasis, Jeff Buckley and Muse, The Smiths were one of, if not the, seminal band of the 80's.
'The Singles' showcases, arguably, their best work and proves that Morrissey and Johnny Marr were the most important partnership since McCartney and Lennon.
