Edge's angriest song to date

Edge is pissed off apparently so it got me to thinking....We get alot of sounds from him but rarely would I ever describe his guitar playing as angry, so what would be his angriest song?

1. Bullet the Blue Sky
2. Gone (live)
3. Last Night on Earth (live)
4. Sunday Bloody Sunday
5. Fly

An Cat Dubh?

I'm not sure if that's angry, but it has a darker mood than most any other U2 song.

The guitar in 'Indian Summer Sky' also has an aggressive feeling to it.

The emotion is there on Silver And Gold. Would like to see how he would approach that solo now... maybe some more blues elements hopefully.

I would say Bullet tops the list for anger from the Edge. Particularly the ZooTV versions.

The buzzer sound in Discotheque, doesn't get angrier than that. He also sounds pretty angry when he sings the line "dont piss in at the drain" - it almost makes me feel apologetic everytime I piss in a drain.

"Bullet The Blue Sky". It sounds like bombs are dropping right out of his guitar during that song...can't get much angrier than that.

God Part II for sure.

Absolutely bone-rattling.

Bono ain't too happy in that song either. Albert Goldman (rest in pieces ) had that effect on a lot of people.

There's this one ZooTV version of BTBS which is absolutely insane. It's played faster than normal and Edge thows in some wonky effects at the ened. Anyone konw what I'm talking about?

Either way I'll also throw in Exit, Wire, Maggie's Farm/Cold Turkey

Bullet, Exit, and...Electric Co. anyone? I love the solo.

Dirty Day on Zoo TV was pretty angry too

Gone live because he smashed his guitar lol

Staring at the Sun album version. They need to play that song live full band not acoustic!

Electrical Storm too

And certainly, Gone and Wire

Duh! Of course Edge´s angriest song is... EXIT!

Fly, Until the End of the World and Acrobat are very angry too.

That solo in Acrobat is very angry... altough the solos of Fly and World are better...

The Electric Co. is simply filled with anger. Whenever I'm really annoyed, I'll just crank it up, shout it out, and feel a LOT better!

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

The ending of UTEOTW live!
The craziest Zootv versions of Bullet The Blue were from Wembley and Adelaide.

I'd also say Bullet The Blue Sky. I'd also say this is Bono's angriest song too.
