She's So Mean, I Don't Care

The new U2 album is pretty strong, top to bottom, I'd say. It's not as good as the last two but better than, say, "Zooropa" or "Pop." But the first single, "Get On Your Boots," just plain sucks. Now, the band's been known to release a less-than-stellar first song (remember "Discotheque"?), but this is a new low. And not only that, but it's not even original:

No idea what ever became of The Escape Club, but if they're still around they should sue Bono.

Too funny. I used to love that song as child.
If anything, I thought the U2 song was a rip off of Bob Dylan. It's just too damn catchy though.

That's funny because my wife and I had the EXACT same conversation the first time we heard the song. Get on your cowboy boots.
