Not trying to be a pain in the ass. I hope that U2 sells gazillions and kicks every Britney and whatever the f**k else off the charts. But the only album that sold more than 10 millions in the last two years was Winehouse's Back to Black if I remember correctly. And it only did that cause it was universally praised and produced a worldwide hit with "Rehab".
Not that U2 can't do those things but y'know how critics love to hate U2, especially at this period of their career and Boots is a almost-perfect song, but far from being radio-friendly.

Bomb got 79/100 on Meta Critic and won Alum of the Year at the Grammys. I'd hardly call that critics loving to hate U2...but I know see what you are saying about there being few huge albums in the last couple years...

The brits are stilll too far ahead in my opinion.
To keep momentum we need the video as soon as possible and lots of radio airplay of course.

I just checked out the iTunes Top Songs chart, and it was wonderful to see the U2 single cover on a bunch of them.

I saw the other songs that were ahead and they're all laaaame.

It was wonderful on the eyes to see U2 hitting #1 from the Netherlands and to Portugal. Beautiful!

In the U.S., one version of the song hit #13. So it did get higher than #16.

Given U2 have done ZERO promotion for this song, their age, and that it's just starting to get some minor play on radio, I think the song is already doing well. If U2 does some TV appearances or commercials (and sadly, to get hit songs these days, even big pop artists sometimes have to resort to this), we may see a big turnaround. If not, so be it. I'd rather see U2 have two or three hits from this album, not one like "Beautiful Day" or "Vertigo" that really was THE hit.

I'm updating it based on the charts at the end of the day, so It's missing the earlier US peaks, this is just the peak from when I started counting them

The song has now been released in Australia, Finland, and the Netherlands, so that'll be added to the list at the next update

If it's out anywhere else someone tell me so the list doesn't fall too far behind

Looks like they have stopped doing them as 2 single tracks and started counting them as 1 (bit late now imo, they should now add them both together n push it up), the track has move up 2 places as it was 47 before,

not everything is as doom and gloom as people make out,

I'm hoping they're still not combined, makes the chart position sound a little better
