The 80s
Overrated - everything on the greatest hits, except Unforgettable Fire & October
Underrated - Unforgettable Fire, One Tree Hill, October, Gloria, Seconds, Like A Song

The 90s
Overrated - Mysterious Ways, Love is Blindness (I'm gonna get it, great song but ruined by that silly rhyme...I took the money/honey...the way Bono sings it turns me off somehow)
Underrated - Ultra Violet (Light My Way), most of Pop

Some just suffer in this category because they've been played too much...I've always considered U2 one of the few "album bands" remaining; their singles aren't always the best representation of their work.

80s
Over: WTSHNN (studio version doesn't capture its live energy), Pride, NYD.
Under: Drowning Man, Desire, Red Hill, TTYW, Wire.

90s
Over: UTEOTW, WGRYWH
Under: most of Zooropa, Ultra Violet, The Fly, Discotheque, HMTMKMKM

00s
Over: SIAM, Grace
Under: When I Look At The World

Dano: If that's how you feel about "One" - then wouldn't you put that in the "UNDERrated category"?

Hawkmoon 269 - the most underrated song of all time.

The Fly is up there for the 90's also.

one of my favorites is the entire Unforgettable Fire album. Everything on it. I still get chills when I hear "welcome to the unforgettable fire." That song, so wind blows through my soul, isn't it called Indian Summer Sky or something?
