Grunge YT: "The Really Messed Up Truth About Morrissey" (December 26, 2019)

As the lead singer for The Smiths, Morrissey was an unparalleled lyricist who helped create several timeless classics like "Ask" and "How Soon Is Now?" More recently, he's arguably become more famous for his wince-inducing soundbites than his solo output. Here are some messed-up details about Morrissey. Pro tip, amateur writers! The next time you find yourself plagued by self-doubt, take solace in the fact that your work can't be any worse than Morrissey's debut novel. List of the Lost was published in 2015, hot on the heels of Morrissey's autobiography. The book was was widely panned and endlessly ridiculed for reasons that will soon become all too apparent. In its breathtakingly scathing review, The Quietus wrote that, "What you’re actually looking at is some of the most heinously overblown prose printed by a major publishing house in living memory." Aside from its general awfulness, List of the Lost caught the world's attention thanks to a particularly cringe-inducing scene, one that tried to convey a theoretically steamy lovemaking session. Don't believe us? You should probably savor the passage for yourself. How's this for purple prose? "Eliza and Ezra rolled together into the one giggling snowball of full-figured copulation, screaming and shouting as they playfully bit and pulled at each other in a dangerous and clamorous rollercoaster coil of...violent rotation...and the pained frenzy of his bulbous salutation extenuating his excitement as it smacked its way into every muscle of Eliza's body except for the otherwise central zone." Oooh… is it getting hot in here? No. No, it's not.

The usual topics are raised in a hit piece that doesn't really bring anything new to the table.

If your reading this your an idiot.
Grunge is dead and won’t be remembered. Morrissey on the other hand will live on and will be changing people’s lives for the better for all eternity

Haters gonna hate.

Lovers gonna love.


Oh my god, can you please shut the f*** up, what are you f***ing 12 you sound like a f***ing Moron!

If your reading this your an idiot.
Grunge will be remembered as it saved the dying patient "rock music" in the early 90s. I don't know how many people will remember Morrissey's latter-day work from 2009 on?

I don’t after that shit swords album came out after that I stopped buying any of his shit because that’s what he was putting out shit.


weird. so these people were paid for this video by whom?
in list of the lost (a work of fiction), he didnt offer them the misogynist porn they are used to nowadays. seems this triggered the rest of this very weird video.

I like List of the Lost. The only slightly horrifying thing is all the bits of it that tie up with his life story - I suspect I don't want to know what happened on that athletics team.




Great video. Morrissey is such a despicable man. "When will you die?" indeed.

f*** racism and f*** Morrissey.
