What is U2's most underrated song?

Well, couldn't find a thread about this, so.

For me it would be Zooropa. Only played 3 times live? It is the best song on the album, and the end is epic
They have to play it on 360 tour, it fits in perfectly.

And i would say One tree hill, but it got a tv show named after it, so it's not that underrated i guess

Underrated by the band or by the fans?

If it's by the band, it's Levitate by a fuckin' billion miles.

Daddy's gonna pay and Miami underrated? Really? Those are the one of the worst U2 songs, both of them, in my opinion.

And One Step Closer and Wild Horses are also underrated indeed. And I'll add In gods country and RHMT, and In a little while.

I looked Levitate up on Youtube, i don't like it quite frankly. Too much pop, doesn't fit at all on atyclb.

I was thinking underrated by the fans, but your choice. I don't know much about the opinions the band has on their songs, i only know that Bono's favorite song is Stay and Edge favorite riff is Streets.

Mr. Bauer and I have completely different tastes apparently.

Daddy's Gonna Pay is for sure on my U2 top 25 and I love Miami too. Indeed, forgot about IGC and IALW.
Levitate is my third favorite U2 song. To me, it's among the best things ever put on "record" by any artist.


Well, I think we can classify a song "underrated by the band" when it's released as a b-side or when it isn't played live a lot I guess.
