    Morrissey is mad that HMV put “one per customer” stickers on The Smiths’ “The Queen Is Dead” vinyl single:

    This sticker was not requested by the Smiths, and cannot be found on any other HMV stock, and therefore exists for “The Queen Is Dead” only.

    But why is it there?

    An attempt to freeze sales is, of course, an overwhelming insult to the Smiths … as if artistic freedom must struggle in our current culture of banality … as if only counterfeit emotions may apply.

    Or maybe it’s so someone doesn’t buy a bunch and put them on eBay and fans can’t get them in stores? I dunno, just a guess.

    Seems like he might be in a constant state of "mad", rather than "mad again". I appreciate when businesses take efforts like this to look out for fans and protect against scalping or reselling. Seems obvious what they were going for with the sticker.

    Welp looks like Morrissey hasn't bought a record or gone to a show since the internet was invented

    I bet Morrissey buys 5 copies of every album.
