I repeat, you do not need permission from U2, any of the members of U2, Paul McGuinness, Larry's cousin, any of the roadies, or any of Bono's alter egos to play a song unless you put it in a commerical, movie, or anything designed to make a profit. Do you think every sporting team, nightclub, or radio station has to ask the permission of the band to play one of their songs?

Thank you.

They play U2 songs over the PA in my grocery story, at the outdoor mall where I shop and in restaurants I eat in ALL the time. They play them on ESPN, during Dodger games, at street fairs and even during the surf report on the local news.

I think we have already established that jumping to misinformed conclusions is way more fun though

U2 songs over Supermarket PA, urghhh. Nothing like being 9 hours into a 10 hour shift and hearing Stuck in a Moment. Nearly ruined me I tells ya!

As for Kerry, I think that its a little funny "On the road but you got not destination".

Okay people enough with the grocery store stuff. There is a big difference between having your song played randomly along with hundreds of others as background music on store muzak and using one song in particular in connection with a political candidate. Playing the song as part of the candidate's show, just like having your song played on a commercial, DOES denote endorsement of the 'product', be it an SUV, sinus medicine or a politician. IF the band did not support the candidate, or the product, they would ask the song not be used. Because this has not been done, and because Bono was even in attendance at the convention, it is very clear to me that the song does mean the band approves of this.

Other stars, such as Tom Petty and Bryan Adams, have asked their songs not be used by candidates they did not support. As possessive as U2 is over their songs and the images they project, they would not let a song be used if they were not in favor of the person and his campaign, I guarantee you that.

I don't know if playing it for a sports team means they support the team, I guess if it's only part of the intermission or time fillers duriing breaks in the game, or if it's shown in connection with the them itself, such as, "We Are Family" for the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates. I would say the context you are describing is more in the category of the muzak.

Doesn't matter if Kerry played a U2 song.
Bush will go back on his "word" even if that song had been played or not.

They are all politicians and they will be duplicitous bastards who know how the game is played, it doesnt matter if they are Democrat, Republican, Liberal Democrat, Labor, Green or Communist. To quote Nikita Kruschev "Politicians are the same all over." Never, ever forget that and most importantly never ever believe the hype.

Believe it or not folks, I really don't hold politicians in super-high esteem myself. I do feel obligated to cast votes, and to inform myself to cast the vote I feel is right. There are too many people around the globe who don't have votes and too many people who must put up with corrupt governments. I really feel for these people. They're terribly unlucky. But trust me there are people I respect more than I do any politician, like Bono! I think Bono wants a working relationship with Kerry the same way he does any other politician, Democrat or Republican. Bono is actually proud that he's able to work with politicians of both parties and all political persuasions. He's worked with Bill Frist, Jesse Helms, Mitch McConnell, and other noted Republicans. He has never complained about working with these people. I think it's great that he can work with these people. But, he's also got to work with Democrats to get the votes for aid to Africa. Like it or not, this includes Senator Kerry. The guy's got a vote. He wants a good relationship with him. This doesn't necessarily constitute an endorsement in my opinion. As an Irish citizen he can't even vote in our elections, so why would he be interested in endorsing anyone?

More than likely, they'll have the usual
squeaky clean "new country" music being played. That type of music makes me
want to puke.
