I don't care if it's played on kazoo. I don't need to hear it again live for a long time. Certainly not on this tour.

Let's be honest, Stuck is completely appropriate for an event like this.

A song about a friend committing suicide is appropriate for an event honoring a friend and bandmate.

Got it.

I don't know, seems appropriate at an event to help artists who are struggling with substance abuse/addiction.

Seems to me U2 have a few songs about that very subject that they could have chosen, two of which are currently in the setlist

Got it.
The award Adam received is given to music industry people who help others in the industry recover from addiction. Stuck in a Moment is a heartfelt song about a friend trying to help another friend conquer his demons. It was a perfectly appropriate song choice.

okay. fine. I just don't want it in the damn setlist, and they like to add songs they play at these little things back into the setlist from time to time.

and also... why whip out Stuck when there were two songs that are literally about addiction that they play every night, such as...

Huh? RTSS isn't about Adam any more than Stuck is.

And Headache's fear is justified - after Stuck showed up at the Roxy in 2015, it then made the IE setlist, though mercifully infrequently and not at all on the European leg. I don't see where it would fit in the current set though.

I don't even need to hear it on the album, let alone live.

I don't even dislike the song... it's just been overplayed and it's time for a rest, and I can't imagine where they would shoehorn it in... but knowing their past history, and with the only two shows of the tour for me coming up tomorrow... yea. Please go away, stuck.
