The Smiths song 'Meat is Murder' has become something of an anthem for vegetarians over the last few decades.

Anyone who has seen Morrissey in concert in recent times will be aware of the shocking video clips of animal slaughter that are shown when he plays the song live.

Now, Moz has teamed up with animal rights organisation PETA for a video game with an 8-bit version of the song playing in the background.

Titled 'This Beautiful Creature Must Die', you must save as many animals - while avoiding bombs - from the blade as possible by clicking on them.

Morrissey said: "This game is the biggest social crusade of all, as we safeguard the weak and helpless from violent human aggression. You don’t get that from Pokémon Go."
