The Smiths teamed up with PETA for the release of a new 8-bit game, titled This Beautiful Creature Must Die, that features their 1985 song “Meat Is Murder.” 

“This game is the biggest social crusade of all, as we safeguard the weak and helpless from violent human aggression,” Smiths frontman (and vegan) Morrissey said in a statement. “You don’t get that from Pokémon Go.”

The game plays an arcade version of the song in the background as players try to save chickens, cows, pigs, and turkeys from saws at the bottom of the screen and bombs floating throughout. Created in collaboration with This Is Pop, This Beautful Creature Must Die is available on both iPhones and Androids.
