Information

Viva Hate is Morrissey's debut solo album. Originally entitled Education in Reverse (some LPs in Australia and New Zealand were released with the original title), the album was released on 14 March 1988 by HMV Records a mere six months after The Smiths' final album, Strangeways, Here We Come. Produced and co-wrote by Stephen Street, the album yielded two Top 10 singles, "Suedehead" and "Everyday Is Like Sunday".
