If you could rename HTDAAB...

If you could rename How to Dismantle and Atomic Bomb, what would you make the title?

One Step Closer if it was named after a track.

Solar just for the hell of it.

I like "Bob", I think it would make a lot more sense than HTDAAB. The songs seem to relate more to family than to war. Original of the Species, One Step Closer, SYCMIOYO...

I like that!

I tend to like short titles the best, although there are some albums which make up for awful titles.

I like the idea of naming HTDAAB "Man" - as an evolution of "Boy".

That way, one could interpret "Man" in several ways - as referring to Bob Hewson, a metaphorical man (the evolved Boy), or even referring to Bono, as the Atomic Bomb supposedly refers to.

I agree with this.
However, I always liked the rumored 'Hanover Quay' title.
If titled after a track, Origin(al) Of The Species would be a sugestive title.

Seriously, I would have gone with 'All Because of You'. I think it would have made a nice reference to us, the fans, as well as to Mr. Hewson, an apparent large source of inspiration for the album.

"laughing all the way to the bank"....or "all that larry mullen jr. wouldn't let us leave behind"...or even "The Unforgettable Shit (don't even try to forget)" , maybe not "Snotty music made by snotty rockstars:Ah-choo, baby!" but my favorite would have to be"Cock-rammed in the ear"
