The first recording to feature new member Craig Gannon, The Smith's 'Panic' bemoans the state of contemporary pop music. An enduring classic, the song was released by Rough Trade as a single and reached No. 7 on the Irish Singles Chart and No. 11 in the UK Chart.


Morrissey considered the song's appearance on daytime British radio a "tiny revolution" in its own way, as it aired amongst the very music it criticised.
