Rolling Stone: "U2 greatest hits comp, may drop before Christmas"

Just saw this in the newest issue of Rolling Stone, in an article talking about the failing record business hoping on fall releases to save the year...might be interesting to see how that would work, 1980-1990, 1990-2000, then 2000-2006??

That's crazy!!!!!! There's no way they will do that!

What would go on it? BD and SYCMIOYO were already on 1990-2000.

Expect Elevation and Walk On, the other two singles.

HTDAAB would give you Vertigo, Sometimes, and COBL for sure. Probably also OOTS and maybe ABOY or LAPOE.

They may as well just re-release HTDAAB with a couple more bonus tracks or something. A "Best Of" at this point makes absolutely no sense, at least in the format that we're used to.

Are you looking at the Rolling Stone with Zeppelin on the cover? I don't see anything in there talking about U2 and a greatest hits comp.

This sounds like a pile of crap to me, but if it weren't, maybe a "Rest of the Best" and a new song or two recorded during those supposed upcoming sessions with Rubin?

Maybe it would make sense if it was the so dreamed by I and others :

U2 The best of 80-06 live

Otherwise doesn't make any sense .......... I mean a BOX with all the possible and coming dvds would be possible , something to celebrate their 30th anniversary and all together with the book , but a compilation of Studio songs ???????

Oh, okay. I haven't gotten that one yet.

Regardless, I call shenanigans on the rumor.

i think your getting Sometimes you cant make it on your own mixed up with Stuck in a moment you cant get out of, SIAMYCGOO was on 1990-2000, why i have no clue it came out in 2001. all i could think of them putting on a 2000-2006 best of would be

1.Elevation Tomb Raider mix
2.Vertigo
3.Walk on
5.Sometime you cant make it on your own
6.all beacuse of you
7.city of blinding lights
, thats every single since ATYCLB excluding stuck in a moment and Beautiful day

No way is that true. Why, if they have released two decade best ofs, would they go and muck it up with a six year best of when only seven songs have been released? A greatest hits comp? No chance in my opinion. Maybe an EP with some of the songs that were released on iTunes, or something in the vein of that Seven thing they released a few years back with Summer Rain, etc on it.
