Whilst I don't think The Smiths are awful by any means, I can't agree with your initial premise. I have several (in my opinion) more worthy contenders, but since it's all a matter of taste I can see no real point in the discussion - I'm not going to alter my view, and I bet you're not going to alter yours!

Is there such a thing as the best band ever? The Smiths sure were mighty good, but there are plenty of other contenders for that position, too.

I'm just being passionate I suppose, whilst other bands are great in their own right, I always like the Smiths regardless of my mood, which can't be said for any other music

I originally got hooked to tunes like this charming man, and the boy with a thorn in his side

And I like how some songs are immediately catchy and lovable but then their other music which is at first presence not as great grows into a something on a totally different and incomparable level

For instance

Johnny Marr + Morrisey = the most radically forward thinking and unprecedented band of the era. Marr's guitar parts are unmatched to this day(1) and Morrisey's combination of bleak cynicism and quirkiness is brilliant.

The Smiths are a good band. It's just a pity they don't have a singer.

The Smiths clearly are not the best band ever.
