There are nine incredible songs here and one sack of crap. Ultra Violet never should've made it this far. Talk about a post-tour bounce.

Ultraviolet is my second-favorite U2 song, but I will go with the general consensus now that Lemon is gone, and vote it off. Light your way out of here.

You're eliminating your second favorite U2 song of all time?

WTF?

I'm confusing everyone, I know. Simply ignored the "second-favorite U2 song of all time" opinion of mine and just voted.

But... why? Aren't you supposed to be voting based on favorites?

They voted for UV because it's UV's time to die.

Indeed. Terrible, terrible song.

You really see how bad U2 are when you narrow down their work to 10 or so songs.

Can I block vote all 10 as the shite they are?

It's my second-favorite too... although I didn't vote for it, haha.

Any format that has people doing this has something going for it.

Right?

MOS and BD should be on that list. I'm one of the last people here to bang the drum for 00's U2, but those two offerings are easily amongst the finest of their career.

At the expense of..? These songs are all better than those two. Homecoming should definitely be here. Why we booted that is beyond me.

Wait a second, we're down to the 10 best U2 songs, one of which is a "sack of crap", and you want to add more in? If the top 10 U2 songs ever includes 1 "sack of crap", I can only conclude that making a list of the top 12 U2 songs would mean 3 "sacks of crap."

Actually there would be 1.2 sacks of crap.

(There are no bad songs left, I'm just pissed off with UV for killing off Lemon)
