Probably would be fine if they didn't reuse the bridge for volcano. Maybe they're being self referential but I prefer a little more original or at least more well hidden. Song reminds me of end of the 60s guitar rock

if you require someone to explain why volcano is an embarrassing song from a band with the sort of catalogue as U2 have, then i think the best thing you can do is re-listen to u2's great songs from before atyclb.

My issue with this song is, I feel like there's a titanium wall, stretching forever. It's called 'Bono'. I know there's a song behind this Bono, but I cannae get past the Bono.

Also, Mr Edge, if you're going to do a 'rocker' with simplistic pentatonic guitar riffs, for fuck's sake add something exciting to it. A decent solo perhaps. A complicated bit of guitar somewhere. Anywhere. So it feel a little more invigorating than a 15 year old plugging in a distortion pedal for the first time.

Though I still can't get past the Bono so, maybe I'm doing Edge a disservice.

This song belongs in the bin. I'm sorry, but I do not agree with U2 re-using Volcano for the chorus, it's extremely lazy and I find it ridiculous. This band is losing me with their downright weird decisions.

Volcano is a cool song and your answer explaining why it's embarrassing is pretentious as fuck.

Now i understand what "lost in the music" means.... this song is going all over the place and has no purpose. The only positive thing about all my negative posts of today is that the last album i disliked so much in the beginning is now my favourite one.... AB!
The only difference is that back in 91, there was not 1 shitty pop song on the album. Now i hear 2 already out of 5 songs....
