How far will "Bomb" climb up the charts now?

How much of a bump up the charts will "How to Dismantle..." get from all those Grammys, especially 'Album of the Year'?

Post your guesses...

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"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."

Past experience shows that it will get a big jump. Right now it is off the Top 200, it will certainly jump into the top 50, maybe higher.

all that you can't leave behind jumped into the top 25 after it won a bunch of grammys, and it didn't even win album of the year.

i would expect how to dismantle an atomic bomb to make a similar jump, if only for a week.

i'm gonna go with #12 on next week's charts.

I think theres a couple of problems though... 2000 was seen as a big comeback year for U2... this year, from the comments I've read outside of this forum, while 50% praise U2 as the best rock band, 10% don't exactly praise them, but say theres no one better, and 40% think they are old (and therefore can't make music) and the Grammys are irrelevant.

A lot of the people have already made a judgement on this album, and have bought it already if they were going to buy it... for "All that you can't leave behind", I think a lot of people in the public didn't notice the album until the Grammys.

Yeah, I started it before the Grammys, but no hard feelings for this thread.

As for people not liking U2, there's no denying they're the biggest in the world.

Also, ATYCLB sold more before the awards, I think they should see a bigger boost this time around especially with all the media coverage and the Album of the Year win.
