I've always favoured the "still running" ending, personally. It was great when I saw U2 in Boston, at the first show. I was up in the nosebleeds, and randomly, the guy beside me and I both just burst into "Still running! Still running! Still running, yeah!" at the end of RTSS. We just looked at each other and shared this "fuck yeah" sort of grin.

I love Red Hill Mining Town, but the video has really hurt it for me.

I wish they'd play this live. They don't want to play it because it would be half arsed, but that hasn't stopped them from playing other songs half arsed.

No. They come from the early sixties era when singles, not albums, were where it was at. So compilations are the way to go. Songs you'd want on a compilation include Apache (their signature song), Kon-Tiki, Shadoogie, Wonderful Land, and Quartermaster's Stores. I know I've used some of their tracks in DI; Kon-Tiki is in DI V, so see if you like that. If you dig that song, you'll dig the other ones I've named.

I watched the video two or three times when it first hit the internet.

And then I was like "This is fucking terrible."

I really don't think the video was that bad. Sure, it wasn't good, but have you guys seen ... pretty much every video they've done this decade? Much worse.
