Everyone tinkers with their songs. It's just this band does enough interviews that get public attention where they talk about doing it.

That's nonsense. I'm not using poetic license to defend it, you guys are using prescriptivist notions of 'correct grammar' to attack it. Like the lyric or not, there shouldn't be anything wrong with messing with the argument structure of a verb to make a cute little pun.

I hope the reason they put out Blackout was to reassure Best Thing wasn't representative of the album.

So true. The albums they generally spend the shortest time working on usually have the best mix and production. Zooropa for example.

Too many parts in U2 songs these days. Remember "Bad"? Two chords for 6 minutes. They should try riding a groove for longer than 25 seconds.

After a few listens now I kina like it! The only problem I have is that it seems so all over the place. But the drums are pretty cool! I don't get all the hate though lol. I read this forum before I listened to it and I was like oh crap this must be a total shit song lol.
