Can believe the dislike and boredom that some people have for "Pride" is one of the timeless songs of the 80s. Ultimate U2

Yeah same thing is happening with SBS on the War poll.  The Pride riff is magic to my ears everytime.

Absolutely, it's just incredible and that's even before we start talking about edges guitar work in the bridge!!

I love the big stadium anthems, and yet TUF has the most appeal to those who prefer mellow ambience.  Case in point, TUF (the song) has never done anything for me personally, but is a top ten track for many.  I guess Pride is an outlier on the album, even tough it is one most unique and earnest rock songs of all time.  The prototype track that lead to Streets, Beautiful Day, and inspiration for countless kids who would later form bands in the 90s.

Its my #2 track. (runner up to EBTTRT).
