Remember that Simpsons show with a Morrissey-like character that pissed off the real Morrissey? That character has released a single.

Earlier this spring, The Simpsons episode called “Panic on the Streets of Springfield” featured a Morrissey-like character called Quilloughby who ended up being a fat, meat-eating racist. The real Morrissey was not happy.

The Quilloughby character sang excerpts from a couple of songs, including one called “Everyone is Horrid Except Me (And Possibly You),” which was written by Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords. That song has now been released as a single. The real Morrissey will not be happy.
