Filmmaker, documentarian, and director Lance Bangs joins Adam Scott Aukerman this week to discuss U2’s sixth studio album & rockumentary film Rattle and Hum. They’ll talk about Lance’s longtime relationship with U2 which started with him being a fan to getting to know the lovable lads more personally, share their favorite moments from the film, and break down their perfect Rattle and Hum tracklists. Plus, Adam tells us about being at the surprise U2 show during a Haiti Benefit and witnessing U2’s acceptance speech after winning a Golden Globe.

OMG, a Rattle and Hum discussion with Bangs? I can hardly contain myself.

The album itself is meh, but the video? It's a great tour of America and worth watching. Angel of Harlem <3.

That said, the best part about Rattle and Hum is knowing what comes next --- Achtung Baby, which is a perfect album.

Ah! I have been waiting for this opportunity to post my favorite Beatle quote:

"This is a song U2 stole from Charles Manson.

We're stealin' it back.

Aukerman - Cock 'er, man

Dick 'er men - Stick 'em in

Goo Goo Gah Choob"

- Mall McCartney

I could listen to Scott do the whole show in his Don Pardo voice. Kills me every time.

This is the best podcast.
I can't get enough of how it took them OVER AN HOUR to even mention Rattle and Hum.
Please keep the pace to one show per album, I can't get enough of it!

I thought the same thing. They obviously won't talk about anything else but U2.

I was inspired to listen to Rattle and Hum again after listening to this week's episode. I don't want to be critical of Scott, or of Scott, but I think they really undersold just how bad it is. It's 73 minutes long, and I've gotten through it in about half that time, because there is a lot of not goodness on it.

When Scott said "musical guest" I immediately hoped Scott would do the voice. Also hoped for an Ellen Cleghorne, but one can only ask for so much.

Adam Scott: "No offense, but you're being a c*nt."
Hilarious.

Should we start doubting Scott's commitment to U2 after his GGs story? There's no doubt that Scott would have made out with Bono instead of Amy Poehler if he'd been there, but Bono was right there for the taking, and Scott did nothing!
