When they play this live, will this count as a Volcano snippet?

Ok so the only reason why this is so weird is because of the gap between albums. If they came.out at the same time or close together, like a Use Your Illusion kinda thing... Then the, I dunno, sampling? Borrowing?... would make more sense.

The press releases did describe it as a "companion" album to SOI. So I guess it makes sense

I actually like it, refu-jesus aside

If we didn't hear volcano, it wouldn't be as odd.

I haven't heard it either and will hold off until the album comes out but from what I have read in this thread....it's either the best song yet from SOE or a piece of garbage...there is no in between unless Headache finds middle ground.

You are an utter mug, but lets play along because game 7 is turning into a blowout and Im bored.

Yes, Im pretentious. Yes, Im gorgeous and yes Im also quite wealthy. Additionally, as you can deduce I have an extremely high opinion of myself.

And yet, I think this song and Volcano are two of the most disgusting things U2 have ever put out. It’s bad enough that I would stop myself from telling anyone that I periodically listen to U2 in case they’d heard these audio holocausts for themselves.

I agree! If volcano never existed, I think this would be a kick ass song. I think maybe u2 tried to do something a little like pink Floyd the wall ei, all the different versions of another brick on the wall. But unlike the wall, those songs were all connected while this appears to be two different songs all together.

Failing U2 just released "American Soul", a Bono beauty. There's never been such ANGER & UNITY in the fandom. Very 'weak' (and bad for our country) song...

....That re-uses part from Volcano. I want original parts!

I guess I like the song? Refu-Jesus is, erm, not the best lyric ever, but nothing else really offends me.

It's somewhat bizarre that this is the third song to have Glastonbury's chorus, but, if I ignore the self-plagiarism, I don't dislike the chorus any more than I did on its other two iterations, and the verses are probably better than on those songs.
