Now that I've caught up iwth the beginning of the thread and all those Brooce pictures, I'm out. Night folks
The MW single was completely fucking worthless. I feel sorry for anyone who bought it.

Have a good night!

Don't suppose you or anyone else would like to send me some definitive Night And Day? I'd like to hear it. And yeah, you've ranted before about Bono altering Cole Porter's lyrics - not being someone who knows much about Porter, let alone has any attachment, I can't say it evokes an emotional response from me like it does from you.

Bono's voice is better suited for something like this. These two other covers, no. And if he'd been the one trying to snarl like Johnny Rotten on "Anarchy In The USA," U2 would've lost a fan. I'm not kidding.

Is it wrong that I want U2 to perform Anarchy In The USA live at least once just because I think it would bring the lulz in so many ways?

I'll allow it. IF Larry will do the Sid Vicious thing. You know, take a razor or broken bottle or whatever and gouge his chest with it, then play as it bleeds, shirtless.

Then maybe he'll have to go to hospital and his tech, who I'm sure is much more talented, will have to play for him.

I would upload some, but my internet is pretty bad with downloading and uploading right now, something to do with the monthly bandwidth. In a couple of days, once August settles in and my provider sorts shit out, I'll do it.

Ooh, yes. We don't have to worry about Adam, cause, come on, Sid Vicious. Even Adam's better than Sid Vicious. Edge can make a guitar scream, so I'm not worried about him not sounding like Steve Jones. But Bono...as long as he DOESN'T try to snarl like Johnny Rotten, it'll bring lulz. If he does, I think the audience might just walk out. I know I would.

If Bono did try to snarl like Johnny Rotten, I wouldn't be able to walk out. I'd laugh so hard that I'd collapse.

Oh god. U2 and covers. Very shit.
They speak the truth when they say they're no good at it...




SO STOP DOING IT. YOU'RE EMBARRASSING YOURSELVES.
