Next up in our Smiths A-Z project is this song from the Meat is Murder album of 1985. "Barbarism Begins at Home" was released as a single in Germany and Italy in April of that year by Rough Trade and there was also a promo-only UK 12-inch. The song did see a more official UK release as a CD-single in 1988.
The song was played live by the Smiths 82 times and has never been performed by Morrissey since.
