At first I was thinkin' that I liked the music, but the vocal was a little queer, but no! Repeated listenings at high volume have converted me. I fucking LOVE this!!!!!!!

Heheh, I wholeheartedly agree, but I think in a couple years we'll look back and think of Beat on the Brat as pure novelty. I wish I could say differently. This cover has a sensibility that many of the people on this board seem to be looking for in U2's next album.

Um, perhaps it's a subtle way of telling you that your sig is too damn long.

So what are you saying Pub Crawler? hehe No, I think I know, and I agree. I think that this cover is good as a cover, but if this is what the next album sounds like - sure it will rock, but where's the magic? I find it odd that people want an album to rock before they want that intangible magic ingredient that we have come to expect from U2 circa '84 to '93.

Is that what you were getting at?

I agree for the most part. I'm so used to hearing Joey's distinctive vocal, that it may take me a while to get used to Bono's singing. Still, it's a nice gesture to the Ramones. I wonder if BOTB was one of the famous tunes U2 said they wrote in school to get on that TV show Bono always talks about.

If they're a rock band, they should rock!

This is only a cover, and a self-conscious one at that, but at least it rocks! I want the new record to rock and have that magic. That's not too much to ask; those two things aren't mutually exclusive. (Two Hearts, Pride, Sort of Homecoming, Streets, In God's Country, to name a very few.)

Yeah, '84 to '93 rocked, even farther back. I'm a little tired of slow tempo songs from a band that wanted to reclaim the charts for rock and roll.

(Oh shit. Here comes the "You must not be a fan if you don't love everything they do" crowd. RUN! )

beat my head because i don't agree.

nostalgia can cloud the brain sometimes. i'm from the era when the ramones were big. i hated most of their stuff then and i still do. i know u2 feel they wouldn't exist without them, but that still doesn't make the ramones music genius. a 6 year old could write those lyrics in 5 minutes, and a chimp could play them. obviously i'm going to get slammed by all the new "if u2 loves the ramones so do i devotees", but in 25 years you'll still be hearing 'with or without you' on the radio and 'beat the brat' will be dead.

It's okay not to like the Ramones.

I saw them when I was in high school. It was 1980, and they were still riding high. They were fucking great, but an acquired taste. They were stealthily talented chimps and 6 year olds.


But really, aren't we going to be hearing Beat on the Brat after 25 years when this record comes out?

it sounds cool, not really my style, but its not adult contemporary! this alone is a huge step forward from atyclb, i dont ever want to hear that style again.

whatever u2 does, they will be slammed, praised and be the most popular band in the world. thats quite somethin really.
