"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

that's because it SUCKS. and like you said, it's johnny cash! not U2!

oh believe me, i think i'll be utilising the fast forward button a lot on this playlist, unfortunately. i don't like doing that, but the mere fact that i've only heard of about two or three bands on this playlist does not bode well.

It's not exactly Johnny Cash's proudest moment either. I could do without Bono in the background. The only decent thing besides Johnny's always-incredible vocal is Adam's bass.

Ax: Empty's pretty metal but won't kill you. Three more songs of death to go.

It sounds fine. The main job of a mixer is to orchestrate the peice. Make the best sounding thing possible out of what is there. The mixer did that on Zooropa. I don't see any problem with it.

i just can't get into music like that. it's not that i don't like hard rock music or heavy metal or...i don't know, there's so many subgenres of music. but whatever that song classifies as, i don't like it. it reminds me of a song on guitar hero which i hate, not only because it sucks but also because it's fucking hard to play.

Oh, I thought I'd written that already but in keeping up with posts, I hadn't!

I liked it more than I expected. The parts that I didn't care for at least fitted cohesively and your selections made sense. Disc 2, Side B is the best part; Side A the weakest. And I really like that Sting song.

You're going to do well in the voting. It's mostly songs that are well known and liked, and it's put together in a coherent and sensible manner.
