The Fly. I agree with the band on this one: it sounds dated.

My least favorite here is without a doubt Bad, but as has been the case in the last few rounds, I will abstain from voting to save my favorite U2 song, The Fly.

And tourist, when did the band call The Fly "dated"?

It's my favourite U2 song as well. It still sounds fresher to me then anything they've done in a decade.

Bowie said at the time that it didn't sound finished, but I think he was with Tin Machine back then so that tells you a lot.

Edge said that at the time of the 90-00 best of (this was the excuse for not including it).

Of course, he is completely wrong. The Fly is not dated and it is a top 3 U2 song.

I guess I thought when they brought it back for the Vertigo tour, and further on the 360 tour, it sounded fresher and more updated than ever.

Omitting The Fly but including The Hands That Built America is something that should have been dealt with as a crime against humanity.

The Fly is the best U2 song of the past 21.5 and counting years. It should finish as runner-up in the contest, but having it outlive the sacred cow known as Zooropa is gratifying enough

I liked some of Tin Machine's stuff. Their first album was good.

Anyway, for me The Fly is my least fave out of this list--Don't get me wrong--I love the song. My top three from this list would have to be UTEOTW, Streets and Bad.

Can't believe that Zooropa is gone.

All five of the remaining songs are epic live, but one is mixed like arse in studio: UTEOTW. So this is a fairly easy vote.

Won't be disappointed if WOWY perishes though, since it's sucked so hard live since Popmart. I just don't understand how it could become so bad live when the earlier versions, especially on Lovetown, are some of U2's most majestic and powerful live performances.
