Just to give some more perspective:


THESE 'BOOTS' ARE MADE FOR CHARTING: And that's just what the new U2 single did. "Get On Your Boots" (Island) returns the group to the Hot 100 for the first time since "The Saints Are Coming" (by U2 & Green Day) peaked at No. 51 in December 2006.

"Boots" walks onto the chart at No. 37, the highest rank for a U2 song since "Vertigo" tipsied to No. 31 in November 2004.

"Boots" is the fourth-highest debuting U2 single in history. The three titles that had higher new entry positions are:

No. 10: "Discotheque" (Feb. 22, 1997)
No. 23: "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" (June 24, 1995)
No. 30: "Staring at the Sun" (April 26, 1997)

"Boots" also enters the Modern Rock Tracks chart, where it spends week one at No. 8. That's U2's best placing on this list since "All Because of You" peaked at No. 6 in January 2005.

While a No. 8 debut is impressive, six of U2's 36 chart entries have opened in loftier positions:

No. 3: "Mysterious Ways" (Nov. 23, 1991)
No. 3: "Numb" (July 10, 1993)
No. 3: "Discotheque" (Jan. 25, 1997)
No. 4: "Desire" (Oct. 8, 1988)
No. 5: "The Fly" (Oct. 26, 1991)
No. 7: "Until the End of the World" (Feb. 1, 1992)

"Boots" is off to an even better start on the Triple A chart, where it is U2's first single to debut at No. 1. The lads were last on this chart with "Window in the Skies," which began a seven-week reign the week of Dec. 9, 2006.

Of U2's 19 charted songs on the Triple A list, only one other title has debuted inside the top 10. "The Ground Beneath Her Feet" opened at No. 9 the week of Feb. 26, 2000.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah, I think calling this song a flop already is way premature if not just plain wrong.

Well, remember that Billboard wasn't counting downloads at that time. If it did, Vertigo would probably have been a top 10 hit, maybe even #1.

in Holland in the Tipparade it's at no. 17 now after entering last week at 24. It's the charts where the songs land before they get into the regular top 40, and it'll most likely get into that when it has a video and/or is physically available.

In regards to the Post on U2 still being Relevant........i think we have our Answer

I think the video is gonna help the charts big time, and I don't think iTunes is the best indicator of how the song is doing since
A) its available for free on u2.com and
B) U2 is letting people post the song on youtube.com

I'd love to see the hit count on u2.com... if you look at the most viewed videos in a search of "get on your boots" the videos on the first page have a combined 405,000 hits, and I'm sure all combined theres been at least 800,000-1,000,000 hits of get on your boots on youtube alone.

GOYB has moved up to 3 in Canada for radio airplay! Also no. 3 for digital downloads. This isn't surprising as U2 always does so well in Canada.

It's also 5 in Norway and 20 in New Zealand.

#37 i think is fantastic (considering the lack of downloads) we can only assumed, radio play and downloads will increase as the album release approaches.

and when put into context of being their 4th highest ever debut, that is impressive.

i still think vertigo would have been #1 if downloads had been inclusing back then.
