U2's New Album Title? -- "Hanover Quay"

Well, that's my vote anyway. It would be like their Abbey Road (the famous Beatles album named after their famous studio). Maybe it should be called "The Last Days Of Hanover Quay" or something like that. I've been thinking of this since I found out they've been recording in that studio before it gets torn down. Maybe it should be called "Tearing It Up At Hanover" (as opposed to "Tearing Down," since Bono said recently that they're "burning up" as opposed to "burning out" -- is that a stretch?). I think the "tearing up" idea works well for the "punk" music Bono said the band is churning out.

On second thought, I think I still like the original title the best: Hanover Quay

That would be amusing, and a nice slap in the face.

I think that would be one hell of an album title. It would fit nicely with U2's history of album titles. Excellent idea.

With a name like that we finally better get the Hard Rock album we've been promised for years.

Did someone said...... Bikini

I really liked Soul Ascension and Tearing Up at Hanover is pretty fitting as well.As for the hard rock and the punk rock that is going on,I think U2 can achieve a new sound.If they record the songs without producers and then they can re-record them played live...only then I think this idea of hard/punk rock is possible.During the ATYCLB sessions....U2 said recording for them is a very organice process a new idea and it can change drastically.Plus Bono said recently that they have recorded "Electrical Storm" and its gonna blow us away!

What I am trying to say here is that if you look at the 'unproduced' Beautiful Day a.k.a. Always....its pretty punk rock to me.So If U2 are not working with any "producer" then I think its highly likely, but then I am sure it will all change in 8 or 9 months time.

I think "Tearing Up Hanover" woud be better than "Tearing It Up At Hanover." Tearing it up sounds too much like some cliché garbage thrash band ad - "Come see the Grunge Monkeys tear it up at Hanover!"

Tearing Up Hanover Quay

I like the sound of that

Oh bad day huh?

yeah, Tearing Up Hanover would be a good title. but who listens to us? Hmmm...weren't there rumors that Edge reads this board? dude, show us a sign! Name your album Tearing Up Hanover or something. or at the next U2 show I go to, scratch your nose so I know you got this message.

But I digress......

I like the title:

"We're applying for the job. What job? The Best Band on the Planet"

not too long...but not too short.

I like "Hanover Quay"...that would be a cool, sentimental title.

of course you know the media here in America will pronounce the quay as "quay", and not as "key" as it is meant to be pronounced

Hmmm...

I think I do like the sound of Windmill Lane more than Hanover Quay. I think the best title would be:

The Last Days Of Windmill Lane

Just kind of flows. Now they just need to start recording there, and then destroy the place.

And Zooropamanda -- Yes! I was itching to post this!
