Meat Is Murder is a 1985 album by English band The Smiths.



After the relative production difficulties faced in the making of their debut album, lead singer Morrissey and lead guitarist Johnny Marr decided to produce the album themselves, with assistance from producer Stephen Street. Prior to Meat, Street worked with the band on the Top 10 single Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now. As per norm, copyright was attributed to Morrissey and Marr, and the production to The Smiths. Joyce and Rourke were allowed say in the sound levels of their instruments in the mixing.
