Oh I enjoy the alternate version much more, it should have ended up on the album because its just so much more exciting than the original. It has more of a 'balls to the wall' feel which I think is what the tracks going for. Its more all out and less restrained.

The alternate version wins, simply because its lyrics are much less stupid.

The alternate version is the one with the riff-less chorus? I don't care for that one much.

Agreed.
Not my fave U2 song by a long way.

No, too much screaming from Bono in the alternative version. It gets on my nerves pretty soon.

The alternate version is more rocky and raw, but the chorus is the weakest link IMHO

I used to think the alt version was better, but really I like the album one more for the lyrics and the intro. However, the guitars are more raw sounding on the alt version.

Probably the first thing Lillywhite fixed (or broke, depending on your preference).

I really cannot comprehend how the album version's lyrics could possibly be considered superior to the alternate version's.
