One of U2's five best songs ever. Undeniably 10.

Also, thrilled to see how well Treasure did.

A big 9. Love the thing. At its best on the Popmart DVD, methinks. But i'm sure Ax knows plenty of better versions.

The first of these 54 songs that deserves a legitimate 10.

Not that I haven't given a 10 before...I think I gave one to Threw A Brick or something else just to counter the idiot vote.

But a legit 10 in U2's canon.

Believe the hype, this is just a great song. Don't think they've written a more catchy or memorable piano or bass line since.

10. Incredible song! And yes the PopMart version of this song from MC is undeniably epic. I play along to that one all the time. Slane is a close second too.

Either someone heartily dislikes it or they're ranking strategically in the hopes that another overwhelmingly popular song that they like more will oust NYD by like .01
