It seems like it coulkd be a really good song, but it feels like theres not much enthusiasm behind the whole thing, but I think with some re-working it could have been good..

I think it's a pretty bad song too. I think I got spoiled by all the good b-sides during JT/R&H/AB.

ok. well in that case, you're entitled to your opinion. Just remember; this is U2 we're talking about. I find it difficult to despise anything that they do, especially AYGWF. You're right. The song lacks the smoothness and completeness that are found in most U2 songs. But it is still a good song. U2 throw-away songs are much better than the crap they play on mtv/radio today.

You have a point, boosterjuice... I'd rather they'd produce this than say "Lose It" By Eminem but it's below standard for u2, especially with the quality of the album, but it's only my opinion so other people can differ!!!!!!!

I think it's great! 9.5/10!

How many times have you listened to it?

Even if another rock act came up with a song like this, they would treat it as a single.

i like the guitar work, but dont really like the vocals and lyrics by Bono, kind of uninspired. Good song overall, but b-side material for sure.

Not like Mercy

Mercy is better, but this would definitely be a hit from most other bands.

Hate is the wrong word.

It's much more positive to say that you prefer other songs to AYGWF. Add a winking smiley, and we get the picture.

I think it's perfectly fair. I wouldn't say I hate it, but I don't really like it all that much. Definitely doesn't belong on the album in the least.

It's average, a decent B-side.
Better than Summer Rain or Big Girls, not as good as Always.

And it's not on the same planet as Mercy, IMO.
I like Fast Cars, Levitate and Smile better also.

I have to agree with Mark & Macphisto23. I like this song quite a bit. But, since there is not too much this band does musically that I do not like my opinion may be skewed a bit.

Are You Gonna....is a great song. This is the kind of unabashed riffage that I like to see more of, but that's just me.
