Morrissey wears Rough Trade Records’ promotional t-shirt that accompanied the release of “Panic” by The Smiths, 1986
A story circulated as the basis for the song is that days before recording the song, Marr and Morrissey were listening to BBC Radio One when a news report announced the Chernobyl disaster. Straight afterwards, disc jockey Steve Wright played the song “I’m Your Man” by pop duo Wham!. “I remember actually saying, ‘What the fuck does this got to do with people’s lives?’” Marr recalled. “We hear about Chernobyl, then, seconds later, we’re expected to jump around to ‘I’m Your Man’”. While Marr subsequently stated that the account was exaggerated, he commented that it was a likely influence on Morrissey’s lyrics - Wikipedia
