Worst U2 Songs

Maybe worst is too strong of a word. What is your least favorite song from each album? And after that, which of your least favorite is least? Let's stick to the main studio (including R&H) albums.
  • Boy - Another Time, Another Place
  • October - I Threw a Brick Through a Window
  • War - The Refugee
  • The Unforgettable Fire - 4th of July
  • The Joshua Tree - Bullet the Blue Sky (great lyrics though)
  • Rattle & Hum - When Love Comes to Town
  • Achtung Baby - Zoo Station
  • Zooropa - The Wanderer (and if that's unfair since it's not really U2, then Numb)
  • Pop - Miami
  • ATYCLB - New York

Least of the least: The Refugee

Interesting enough these are my favorite non-single tracks on each of the respective albums. Alas.

Yeah.. you know... the kid's onto something

Although I adore LRM, the rest of the list pretty much sums mine up. I don't care for "Freedom for my People" off of Rattle and Hum (is that cheating?)

Okay, we need to try harder. There's no such thing as none or can't pick one. Just list the songs out for each respective album from best to next best to next next best, etc. The last one on the list is your answer. And if there's a tie, you'll have multiple answers then.

Boy was surprisingly the hardest for me to decide on.

Boy - The Ocean
October - I Fall Down
War - RED LIGHT!
The Unforgettable Fire - This album is perfection, but the weakest track is Elvis Presley And America
The Joshua Tree - Trip Through Your Wires
Rattle And Hum - Love Rescue Me
Achtung Baby - Ultra Violet
Zooropa - Babyface
Pop - The Playboy Mansion
All That You Can't Leave Behind - Wild Honey

Least of the least - RED LIGHT, WORST U2 SONG EVER. UGH. It's the only U2 song I do not like at all. At least Ultra Violet's very beginning is tolerable.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Miami rocks. So does Another Time, Another Place.. but a lot of people have that one listed too.

Also didn't realize so many people disliked Love Rescue Me.
