"Trump will kill America", indeed...
The Smiths

The Smiths seemingly scrawled an anti-Trump message in their Record Store Day release.

The single was overseen by Morrissey, who picked out the artwork and perhaps had a handed in the message.

The UK exclusive seven inch single contained a demo of 'The Boy With The Thorn In His Side' alongside an early version of 'Rubber Ring', with newly pieced together artwork.

The vinyl run-out contains the words "Trump will kill America" - check it out below.

The move is actually a long-standing Smiths tradition, with many of their most iconic releases containing etchings in the run-out - mythology holds that Morrissey even scribbled a few himself.

The A-side of 'Hatful Of Hollow' reads "the impotence of being ernest" while the A-side of 'The Queen Is Dead' boasts "fear of manchester".
