Worst U2 song of the decade

Based on the results of the topic 'worst 10 U2 songs of the decade' I want to find out what's the worst, or less favourite, U2 song of the decade by interferers...

These are the rules:
- you are only allowed to choose from the 20 songs out of this list. These are the most mentioned songs out of a total of 50 songs mentioned in the previous topic.
- you have to make a top-5. Number 1 is your less favourite U2 song, etc.
- Afterwards, 5 points will be given to the number 1s, 4 points to the number 2s,...1 point to number 5s. The song that gets the most points in total is the winner!

This is the list:

- All Because Of You
- A Man And A Woman
- Crumbs From Your Table
- Elevation
- Get On Your Boots
- Grace
- I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight
- Love And Peace Or Else
- Miracle Drug
- New York
- One (with Mary J. Blige)
- One Step Closer
- Peace On Earth
- Stand Up (Comedy)
- Stuck In a Moment You Can't Get Out Of
- The Hands That Built America
- The Saints Are Coming (with Greenday)
- Wild Honey
- Window In The Skies
- Yahweh

Of course I have to be objective, but please be aware that 'The Hands That Built America' is in the list...

5. Stuck In a Moment You Can't Get Out Of

It's hard, while there's been few masterpieces they've kept things consistent, there's not many songs that sticks out from the crowd being truly bad. But I put Crumbs From Your Table at the top, I get a headache hearing it.

Incidentally, what's wrong with "The Hands That Built America"? I think it's great. And I think you have to take this song in its context, as the closing music to Gangs Of New York, which is a pretty good film, and for which the song was intended. It's not like you're supposed to hear it after "Moment of Surrender" or something.

Shouldn't that be "the loser"? Heh.

My list:

1 - I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight
2 - Get On Your Boots
3 - Stand Up Comedy
4 - One Step Closer


I'm not putting the Mary J. Whoever on here, because (a) everyone's gonna vote for it, and (b) it's a 1991 song, not a song from the 2000s.

I like all the other songs on the list -- just these 4 rub me the wrong way.

I'm confused... the version with Mary J. The fuking rest of her fucking name, is from 1991?

Well, the Mary J Watson version is from the 2000s, yes, but... I dunno, it's like if we're gonna include that, then we should include the "remixes" of the Pop songs as 2000s' songs. But again, to me, a 90s song is a 90s song.

Maybe I'm just in denial because I love "One", but the whored-out Mary-Huana version is so bad that it makes my scrotum ache.
