Being fairly new to U2, the first time I heard anything of Mofo was on the ElevationDVD where they showed a preview of Popmart from mexico when they kicked off with that song. It sounded great but it isn't quite as strong on the album. A little flat perhaps. Still, it's a good song, very bleak and haunting and I like the Edge's ringing guitar breaks towards the end.

That God-Shaped Hole that is MOFO!

Definitely better live accompanied by Edge's SOARING guitar effects and Bono's impassioned singing

I'd say overall it's neither overrated or underrated.

Great song both musically & lyrically.

The live version I've seen (the one on the Best of 1990-2000 DVD) is so cool and makes me wish I'd have seen them live during the POPMART era.

Thank you for telling me that because the Best Of 1990-2000 DVD was puzzling me. The images rarely correpsonded with the words on Mofo "live"

Over-rated.

U2 "draw inspiration" from 1996's "next big thing" bands Prodigy and Chemical Brothers.

It might be a little bit overrated on these boards...but it still kicks ass.

'mother sucking rock n' roll' is a shitty line, but it's a hell of a romp, nonetheless.
probably a tad over-rated. certainly not under-rated.
i guess it's rated.
