Best Song Survivor: No Line, Round One

Miracle Drug was vanquished in the last round. Thus, Vertigo and City of Blinding lights shall be How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb's two representatives in the 2000s quarterfinal round. Shocking! We now move onto No Line on the Horizon, U2's most recent album! NLOTH shall send three representatives to the 2000s quarterfinal round. You have twenty-four hours to vote against your least favorite song. For anyone just joining us, rules may be found here.

Magnificent until it's gone. Perhaps the most uninspiring song they've ever committed to tape. Trite lyrics, average guitar, not even redeemable by the intro or Adam's bass playing.

White As Snow. Pretty easy decision. I love this album but this song really is a snoozefest with a not so original melody.

I never skipped any songs on the album for quite a long time, as it goes with most new albums. But in time, it's become the most often skipped over now. (White As Snow)

Interesting- I thought there was more love for WAS.
I don't hate SUC, I think it's ok, but I think it's the weakest song here. While I don't really love COL, I respect it, so that counts, at least for this round.

WAS is so much better than GOYB and Crazy Tonight. I thought the Hive had better taste than this.

I like White as Snow. Cedars for me this round.

Anyone think they should have included "Winter"? I wish Every Breaking Wave was on it.

My top 3: Breathe, NLOTH & Moment of Surrender.

I like where your head's at, but it's a little early for that.

Voting for Stand Up Comedy.

WAS is wonderful, poignant and elegant. Can't believe it's under threat already when there are three uber turds floating in the middle, waiting to be flushed into the sewers.

My top 3 as well.

I'm not a fan of Winter though so I'm glad it was left off. Not really a fan of EBW either.

SUC. It may be the worst U2 song ever recorded.

Don't worry, it isn't under any threat yet. Hatred in this forum for SUC, strong it is.

My favorite song on this album is Moment of Surrender. After that, I'm not sure. I really like Magnificent, Breathe, and White as Snow. But ranking those is tough.
