This discussion is about as interesting to me as listening to SOE. I'm not happy about that.

If you listen to too much of it, Bono will think you’re a girl and sexually harass you on stage.

Nobody tell Leo how he was conceived.

In all seriousness though. To bring this thread back to the greatness of the album, I can confidently say that there isn’t a song I skip well after a month. This and SOI are both successful as going down as strong consistent albums. I’d say SOE has more highs, but SOI is so damn fun.

Maybe the first months of 2018 won’t be that quiet after all.

Because Bono's been using variations of "girly" and "...like a girl" for years, including as recently as the Stern interview, without the world melting down?

He probably didn't even think twice about it. And if he did think about it, he underestimated social media's capacity for outrage. Though you're quite right, someone like Oseary (assuming he saw the interview before it went to press) should have known better.

There's a difference between saying you sound like a girl and saying something is girly.

And Bono of all people should know full well all about social media's ability to flip out over small things.

3 things

1- Awesome
2- how often does an artist who is not nominated for any Grammys actual perform? Honest question, as I don't follow that closely
3- What song will they perform? Big money on Get Out of Your Own Way as it's on Triple A radio now and is being pushed to Alternative on 1/9/18

It's much more common now.

U2 opened the Grammys with the infamous awful "guy-liner" Boots performance when they weren't nominated. The song had just come out.

I could see a Kendrick colab... God willing it's on XXX and not American Soul.

They SHOULD play either Little Things or Love Is Bigger.

They'll probably play Get Out or American Soul.

I would LOVE if they did Love is Bigger, Little Things, Summer of Love or Blackout but alas.....we know it will be GOOYOW or American Soul.
