Full Metal Jacket

What is the deal with Full Metal Jacket?! I've read from a bunch of places that Bono said that Full Metal Jacket had the "mother of all rock and roll riffs". Where the hell is it?! That's quite a friggin claim (though I'm believing it b/c of the power of the EDGE!)... and then NOT TO HAVE IT ON THE CD??!?!?!?!! I don't understand...

A little while ago on amazon.com/uk Full Metal Jacket WAS listed as a song for the cd along with Tough... It was listed as "Full Metal Jacket/Native Son"... Now I see on the Complete U2 ITunes thing that Native Son is on there... It's the same friggin thing as Vertigo... Is the riff from Vertigo the "mother of all rock and roll riffs"?... I love the song... but I don't think so... Zeppelin has a million better riffs than that... DON'T GET ME WRONG... I LOVE VERTIGO and I think the riff is cool... just not "THE MOTHER"...

does anyone have any answers to this?

also, if Full Metal Jacket was indeed Vertigo, why would it list BOTH songs for the cd on amazon...???

Full Metal Jacket and Native Son had a baby called Vertigo. So basically Vertigo is the end product of what FMJ and NS set out to be. Bono has a way of exxagerating things when he descibes songs.

If that's the case, then why did amazon have both Vertigo AND Full Metal Jacket/Native Son listed for the cd?

Lemme get this right, according to Bono, Vertigo has "the mother of all rock and roll riffs"...? I dunno about that... my vote would be for something like Black Dog.

You must be right... Bono really does some serious exaggerating...

Full Metal Jacket was never a finished song. It was a guitar riff with a provisional title. This riff was used in the track Native Son, which was later rewritten to be the song Vertigo. In the "U2 and 3 Songs" documentary on the DVD that comes with the album, Edge plays the guitar riff from Vertigo, which I am guessing is the FMJ riff. I don't have the DVD with me this second, but I watched it this morning and it's on there.

That wasn't the official tracklist. At that time, Amazon had copied an unofficial tracklist from this very site and posted it on their site as "official". That tracklist was speculative.

a) screw zepplin
b) once you hear vertigo live and in person you'll know why they once considered it the mother of all rock songs.
