Right now I'm just grateful that they're still around, they still care, they have a new album coming out with 3 songs released that I all quite like (now pleeeeaase nail the production on The Blackout and Little Things), they have not (yet) embarrassed themselves in any way as they did for both NLOTH (Get On Your Boots) and SOI (Apple), and they're making TV performances that sound this good:

You know, U2 was in NYC to film right around the anniversary of 9/11. The lights would have been on already, would they not? It's not like Bono was like, "Willie Williams! Turn on the WTC lights... turn my down... turn those up!"

Indeed. So they would've known about it beforehand. A conscious decision.

I don't get how, without even seeing the video, that people are complaining about the tribute in light being in a scene.

Sure, once we see the video, they could be doing a jig on the memorial site, and that would be pretty fucking offensive.

But being on a boat and having the lights behind them for, as far as we know, like 3 seconds is somehow offensive?

Shh, this forum's got to meet its nonsensical complaint quota for the day.

Remember, one catchy pop rock song from the album means the band is a hollow, vapid shell, bent on top 40 glory, and is an odious sign for SOE...

So let's recap recent topics on SOE vids:

The Black Out video is in black and white like Invisible...unoriginal they are out of ideas

The Black Out Video has Bono crowd surfing...embarrassing, he should act his age

TBT video is on a roof top...unoriginal, U2 is out of ideas

Wait, TBT is on a boat?....but it's in NYC and it costs a lot to shoot there so they are trying to take advantage of something....they suck

Wait, it doesn't cost a lot?...but there are symbols of NYC in the video and that's outrageous !
