Several tracks on ''All That You Can't Leave Behind,'' U2's multi-platinum comeback album of 2000, contain small whispers of words. The first single from the album "Beautiful Day" which went to
#1 in the United States and United Kingdom, repeats the words "Pop was a great album" through the chorus of the song. ''Buy our stuff now'' is embedded in the guitar solo of another track, "Elevation." A third track "Wild Honey" includes the words "You need U2 concert tickets."

Here's another April Fools Article

why waste space with a new thread
http://www.atu2.com/news/article.src?ID=2120


CHESTNUT HILL - Despite students' shock and dismay, the Dave Matthews Band and U2 will play Alumni Stadium next month. Each group will play a four-hour set, and sources say the two bands "may jam together at some point."

Students reacted to the news with disappointed words and protests.

"I don't know why UGBC thinks the Boston College crowd likes these bands," said Jay Kinsella, A&S '04. "They really should have gone for acts that are more popular."

Chris Roemer, A&S '03, agreed. "I don't know what makes people think they're popular now. I mean, sure, U2 was nominated for Album of the Year, but so was Styx in 1965 and man, do they suck."

Other students wished to see different bands in smaller places. "All I asked for was Mogwai in the Rat," said Chris Fagiani, A&S '02. "And I have to deal with this?"

Alternative suggestions included Flock of Seagulls in Vanderslice 403, EMD in Starbucks, and Pantera in Mod 20A. "Dude, Pantera Rocks," said Drew Kent, A&S '03. "F*** U2. F*** Dave Matthews."

U2's songwriting abilities were brought into question as well. "Bono has definitely lost that songwriting edge he had when he wrote songs like 'Discotheque' and 'Mofo'," said Nick Scott, A&S '03. "It's not like 'Walk On' or 'Beautiful Day' are relevant songs right now."

Bono defended the UGBC's decision with a statement released yesterday. "U2 knows that wherever we play, we cause controversy. But we just wanted to say we're sorry we opened the last tour at a certain other Catholic university out in South Bend." He added that the group seems to be stuck in a moment they can't get out of.

In a furious public statement, University President Rev. William Leahy, SJ, said he wanted none of this.

"That's Bulls***. They think they can play here after they betrayed us and played over at Notre Dame? You know, they're only going to sell about five tickets for this stupid show. There'll be more people onstage than in the audience! If I have anything to do with it, it ain't going to be a beautiful day over there when they play. And don't even get me started on the Dave Matthews Band. No-talent hippies."

In a related incident, the BCPD is investigating an incident that occurred yesterday in which a sign that read "DMB Sucks" was hung over the Dustbowl. The Office of Student Development (ODSD) approved the sign because they agreed with it according to Dean for Student Development Robert Sherwood.

"Yeah, Dave blows," said Sherwood. "If I were a student here, I certainly wouldn't pay the ridiculous price they're asking to see two crappy bands."

Tickets are $5.

BC Heights, 2002

And yet somehow he manages to embody all that is masculine and sexy. I don't know how he does it. " ~Gina, on Adam
