Why do so many people say COBL is not a propper single etc.?

I think the US is just not into U2 these days anymore.

In Europe it is/was a big hit!! still a lot of airplay in Netherlands

COBL was #5 on the MTV european top 20, 2day, (after all this time).

without a doubt a mamoth hit, just unbelieveable the US isnt even giving the singles a chance

On the contrary, 3 million US citizens have purchased HTDAAB and it will likely be one of the top 10 biggest selling albums of the year on Billboards year end album chart for the USA.

No amount of promomotion can help that.
This is not too far from the truth,

Btw.: They stole the chorus from Joe Cocker, which makes it even more lame.

It works OK live, though.

you're right.

Can it be possible that the people who buy the albums, maybe are not into the singles anymore. I mean, maybe the average age of a US U2 fan is a little older than the single-buyers (teenagers)? And these teenagers are not into U2, but like Eminem, 50cent etc...
I don't know, just guessing

Most people do not buy singles and singles have not been a significant indication of popularity since the 1970s. Its all about album sales and concert ticket sales.
