Which is a pity, because sometimes they essentially are a cover band.

Ah, goddammit - the TV Gaga Knockin' on Heaven's Door should really be on Youtube again by now.

Gawd, that's not even just Bono doing badly. That's the whole goddamn band's fault. Mick Jagger should, like--fuck if I know. Something evil.

Edge wasn't kidding when he said they were a shit cover band.
After this, I can't wait for your reaction to Fortunate Son!

I don't think U2 have always been that bad at covers. See: Dancing Barefoot, Lovetown Watchtower, Lovetown Knockin' On Heaven's Door, Night And Day.

Funny how those are all from the same era ...

Precisely. He was talking about bad music stuffs and I said i'd pay for his premium if he'd admit something embarrassing. Got him to admit 3 things. It was awesome. I paid for A membership, then had to PM Sicy to ask her to tell Andy to apply it to Axver.

PHAIL, BONO. EPIC PHAIL COLLINS.

Dear Bono,

YOU DO NOT HAVE THE VOICE TO SING SOUTHERN ROCK. SO STOP IT.

Thank you.

My love to Adam,
Reggo.

Night and Day is a poor interpretation regardless of its importance in their catalogue, and Watchtower still has nothing on better covers, even if it tore things up live. But I'll agree that things were better then, of course.

But I guess U2's policy on covers has never been "dudes let's make some KRAZY SHIT out of this, like what NOBODY would EVER exPECT" and more like "hey there's a crowd let's play c'mon everybody and I will swear in it".

I admittedly haven't actually heard another version of Night And Day, but considerably enjoy U2's version. As for Watchtower, I've heard both Dylan and Hendrix's versions, and as heretical as this is to say, Lovetown Watchtower is not only better than them, it fucking owns them.

Larry's drums are the only thing that sound remotely like the original on "Paint It, Black". "Fortunate Son" is a catastrofuck that, if John Fogerty were dead, he'd be spinning in his grave.
