The thing that broke my brain about the Morrissey thread was that LEOE was so obsessed with whether Morrissey would mention U2 on the day of his performance.

I mean, really? Who gives a fuck?

And for that to lead to all that snarking and arguing and smiley abuse and the trolls posting the same thing over and over again, I couldn't believe people were still responding to them... it's frankly mind-boggling. I actually wish I'd voted for Sing With Me, even though I wasn't involved and had no idea it existed until yesterday, cos it was such a positive and fun thing in comparison. I think I'm going to stop reading the argumentative threads halfway through in order to preserve my (remaining) sanity.

You're right. My point was, only a crazed U2 fanatic would do Satellite of Love as homage to U2. Certainly not Morrissey.

But I did remember one example where Nickelback played The Ghost of Tom Joad in honour of Rage Against the Machine.

Hey, it's Nickelback. The redhill of rock bands.

"We're not in Britain or Australia" comes pretty damn close to winning the internets. I read through that thread when it happened, re-read it just now, and I still can't figure out what that guy was talking about. "Morrissey will speak u2's name on the day!" That's batshit insanity right there. Only thing I wonder that wasn't entirely addressed in the original thread was whether red hill has some sort of serious gambling problem, seeing as he seems like a guy who is willing to make bets on absolutely anything, even things that only make sense in his mind (not even finance guy agreed with him, and isn't that guy full of really weird nonsensical opinions that one one else shares? I guess for entertainment purposes it's better that not all batshit crazy is the same batshit craziness). Also, what if he had said the words "you" and "too," given the difficulties with your and you're in that thread, I could clearly see the poor guy getting confused...
