The song is too forced. Its like their trying to sound like "rock" and it just isnt working. They should just play the Fly again

I think All Because Of You is a great song. Like Bono says, the song is heavily influenced by The Who... and you can tell.

Its so rockin, and I don't think these lyrics are supposed to be deep and spiritual. They are just rock n roll lyrics, and I think he wanted them to be kind of silly. I love his voice during the chorus... something about it. And who can forget the amazing breakdown after the 2nd chorus/before the solo. Where Bono lets his amazing pipes whail. Can't forget Edge's killer solo and than that awesome Rock N Roll scream Bono does just before it.

I don't see how people don't like it, but I guess thats what makes U2 so great... the variety of there songs.
Living in craphole Winnipeg and being 18, I wasn't into U2 when they came here on the PopMart tour and they haven't been here since, so I haven't been able to see this one live. Thank god its on the LIVE IN CHICAGO VERTIGO DVD... even though that performance does feel weak.

Yes, I have! And I am also going to have a reunion tour with The Police and even record a new album with them. I also think that Copeland is a great guy and I would love to work with him on more music in the future.

ABOY is one of the best songs on the album, but it never hit off live to me.

Sounded great under the Brooklyn bridge with the backing guitars, but on the Vertigo tour it didn't do anything for me.

Too bad.

Wow, I can't believe all the contempt for ABOY.

It's certainly not my favorite song on the album, but it's the only true rock and roll song outside of Vertigo itself.

To say it's the worst song U2 has ever done is just plain ridiculous.

There are four or five tracks on Pop that are pretty special, but half that album is complete garbage.

Miami would easily get my vote for worst U2 song in recent memory.

I thought ABOY worked very well in concert and was amazed they actually dropped that toward the end of the third leg.
