I don't know who was bigger during the actual time period

As far as influence and popularity with later generations, it's the Smiths and it's not even close

REM or Replacements....

they were my Beatles and Stones growing up...

those two, along with Husker Du and Pixies would help shape/influence the best American music for the next 3 decades..

Both are great, but I’ll go with Pixies.

Pixies. Smiths were better than the replacements. REM and Cure were amazing too.
