Home to the singles "Girlfriend in a Coma," "I Started Something I Couldn't Finish," "Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me" and "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before," 1987's Strangeways, Here We Come (named in reference to Manchester's notorious prison) served as the fourth and final studio album from The Smiths. Johnny Marr regards Strangeways as The Smiths' masterpiece with Morrissey agreeing, "Well, it is. We're in absolute accordance on that. We say it quite often." Billboard noted, "Strangeways is the Smiths at their least jangly and stereotypically Smiths-like, and that's what Morrissey and Marr like about it." Though the band only lasted four years as a recording unit, their influence can still be seen, heard and felt decades after they officially split up.
