Morrissey began his career as a member of The Smiths in the 1980s. The band released four studio albums in the United Kingdom including The Smiths, Meat Is Murder, The Queen Is Dead, and Strangeways, Here We Come. The Smiths were hailed as one of the most influential voices of the 1980s. The band had a great number of songs reach the UK’s top twenty, and all of their projects impacted the top five of the music charts. In 1987, The Smiths disbanded due to financial issues regarding music royalties.
Morrissey embarked on his solo career six months after he left The Smiths. The pop singer has dropped ten studio albums, some of which include Viva Hate, Bona Drag, Kill Uncle, You Are the Quarry, Years of Refusal, Southpaw Grammar, and Ringleader of the Tormentors. His latest album, World Peace Is None of Your Business, entered the UK Albums Chart at Number 1.
