Seems way too low for the numbers we've seen. I expected within the top 40 maybe higher in airplay. I wonder if "airplay" on billboard includes music videos played or something??

Does this mean that GOYB debuted at #21 on the Hot 100?

Nope it means it's 21 on the digital chart

So that's half of the Hot 100 anyway

If the radio play numbers are as low as someone said then looks like it won't debut too high

Romance And Indie Rock Hit The Billboard 200

PROGRESS REPORTS

Quote:
• U2's "Get On Your Boots" blasts onto the Modern Rock and Triple A radio charts as it arrives at Nos. 8 and 1 on the respective lists. It's the band's highest bow on the Modern Rock chart since 1997, when "Discotheque" opened at No. 3. On the Triple A list, it's the chart's first No. 1 debut. U2's new album, "No Line on the Horizon," will be released March 3 . . . "Boots" is U2's 36th Modern Rock hit, dating back to when "Jesus Christ" debuted at No. 11 on Sept. 17, 1988, the second week of the chart's existence. U2 also continues to reign as the act with the most overall Modern Rock hits, ahead of Pearl Jam's 32.

The numbers are in and the results are disastrous for Bono and the lads!

U2's shiteous underwhelming new single, Get On Your Boots, has debuted at an extremely disappointing #21 on the Soundscan singles chart.

The song sold just 57,267 copies in the past week in the U.S.

By contrast, Kelly Clarkson's, My Life Would Suck Without You, is a massive hit.

The first American Idol has come in at #1 on the Soundscan singles chart and sold more than four times as many singles than U2.

My Life Would Suck Without You was bought (legally) by 279,605 in the U.S. this past week.

BIG difference!

Sucks for Bono.

Different perspectives i guess. A decent first week for the Boots imo

It all depends on if sales go up again, if this is the peak for sales then the song is a pretty much a flop. If sales recover we could have a decent hit

For the record, I have made it my personal policy never to buy anything from anyone who was ever a contestant on American Idol. Sort of my own mini-protest against record labels and they're manufactured pop crap.

So far so good.

What i dont get, is why is this hilton guy so botherd about her beating U2

And, still lets not forgot, this single has had little or NO promotion, so the numbers arent to bad considering that.

Here's another perspective on U2's download sales of GOYB in the US. From a blog on USA Today: Those sales don't suck - Idol Chatter - USATODAY.com

Quote:
Kelly Clarkson's My Life Would Suck Without You makes its expected debut atop Nielsen SoundScan's Current Digital Tracks chart this week. According to a press release from her label, MLWSWY sold 279,605 downloads in its first week -- the third-biggest digital song debut ever for a female artist. For comparison, the next-highest debut belonged to U2. The group's Get On Your Boots sold only 58,000 downloads.
So it seems GOYB is the 2nd highest debut on the chart. Not too shabby.

Why the hell do people have U2 compete with Kelly Clarkson?? I mean she does pop, u2 does rock. Its stupid to compare the 2.

New at 37 on the BB Top 100 !

I think this might be their highest new entry apart from Discotheque.

I'd expect this to drop for the next chart. They open the grammy awards this year so that should have some impact. After that I expect it to hang around the middle of the charts for a while.

To me the song = Discotheque meets Vertigo. It gets a LOT better when Bono asks "Let me in the sound" . Its a much sexier sounding single than some of their other work and melodically it appears to be deliberately simple.

Also - I still dont see confirmation of Eminems release date for Relapse. I've looked on his website and it still looks like they are keeping their options open. So unless others are certain of the release date I have my doubts if there will be a release date clash with NLOTH. Also hes an Interscope artist (as are U2 in the US) so I would imagine they will do whatever they can to avoid the clash.

n.37 in Hot 100 Us for Get on your boots.
For a rock song (of an old rock n roll band is good...)

So do the sales numbers include iTunes or not? I don't know about you guys but I didn't buy boots because I know I'm going to be buying the Album when it comes out.

It would be interesting to see Boots numbers vs. Vertigo. I think having the single split into two songs on the chart probably hurt it a little, plus remember that Vertigo had a *huge* marketing campaign with Apple on TV.

But anyway, its not something that I would be bothered about. A band that has been around as long as U2 can't keep towing the line. They'll either become irrelevant to the mainstream by trying to reproduce what they did in the past, or they'll alienate their fans who have come to love what they did in the past and don't want them to change.

Vertigo debuted at #46... of course that was before Billboard started counting digital downloads.
