2. The Smiths - Strangeways, Here We Come
There must be Smiths fans out there in the world that don’t know that Strangeways is the commonly used name for Her Majesty’s Prison on Southall Street, Manchester M60. The jail was built on the grounds of Strangeways Park in 1868 and by 1980 was a destination for remand prisoners. After the controversy over The Smiths’ previous album title, The Queen Is Dead, Morrissey considered that he would ultimately end up behind bars for treason.
