I'd prefer a list of U2's band members. That would be intriguing!

 

OK, I'll bite:

 

1) Bonobos

2) Thedge

3) Adam Claytwothousandpounds

4) Larry Mullen Sr.'s Son

Top U2 album covers:

 

1) War

2) Unforgettable Fire

3) the rest all suck

I also like No Line On The Horizon and Pop. They've made fun of Joshua Tree's on South Park a number of years ago I think, just remembered that

I've also found this ridiculous article that ranks 'Get On Your Boots' as their 37th best song, and Original Of The Species as their 2nd to worst song http://radio.com/201...u2-song-ranked/

Plus a bunch of other crazy stuff

Holy fuck. I don't like bashing people for making ranked lists like this, since this stuff is incredibly subjective, but I disagree this particular list so hard. White as Snow, Original of the Species, Fez - Being Born and Unknown Caller as U2's four worst songs? Get out of here.

There's also no consistency in their choices I felt like. Miracle Drug for example is quite similar to those songs yet it's 18th whilst they're at the bottom

I thought it was universally agreed upon that 'Get On Your Boots' is U2's worst song

This list is insane, but honestly Get on Your Boots does not deserve all the flack. If you remember the NLOTH ep, the Scotts liked the opening riff (which is most of the song, and granted a tad repetitive) and they like the chorus (the "you don't know" "you don't get it do you"). It's a catchy song, and enjoyable if the lyrics don't ruin it for you. I, for one, think

(For some reason my phone accidentally posted the reply before I finished)

I think that it is ridiculously funny that they say "sexy boots" because of how little sense it makes, and they throw it in the middle of an album that has an intense feel to it. Sure it doesn't fit, but at least it showed some sort of light-heartedness. I will admit, that song prevented the success of the album as a whole.

What if we lived in a world where "Invisible" was the single to NLOTH and Get on Your Boots was maybe worked on a little longer, rewrote and made into what Invisble was, the appetizer to Songs of Innocence.

Sexy Boots for life.

Listen broseph, I don't know how this website works. I don't know how to like my own post, so there's no way I intentionally liked my own post. Is it the check mark thing?
