Morrissey is routinely referred to as an influential artist, both in his solo career and with The Smiths. The BBC has referred to him as “one of the most influential figures in the history of British pop”, and the NME named The Smiths the “most influential artist ever” in a 2002 poll, even topping The Beatles. Rolling Stone, naming him one of the greatest singers of all time in a recent poll, noted that his “rejection of convention” in his vocal style and lyrics is the reason “why he redefined the sound of British rock for the past quarter-century”. Morrissey’s enduring influence has been ascribed to his wit, the “infinite capacity for interpretation” in his lyrics, and his appeal to the “constant navel gazing, reflection, solipsism” of generations of “disenfranchised youth”, offering unusually intimate “companionship” to broad demographics.
