Exit = Most overrated U2 song of the 1980s.

Don't know about overrated, but definitely is not that great of a song. Kind of plods along for me, in spite of that loud part.

You wanna talk about plodding along, let's talk So Cruel. Amazing lyrics but COME ON guys, do something interesting to them.

...I agree. O_O

+2. "Love like a screaming flower, love dying every hour"...so brilliant! But the music...ugh.

I swear every time I see TUC post, you post right after him.  :D

Really? It's been like one or two threads. Try the 2012 thread. Or the Wall Street thread.  :P

Anyway, back to the music. Hope my picks make it. :)

Exit is one of U2's best ever live songs, certainly from the 1980's.  The reason why they haven't played it since is laziness, pure and simple.

Alternatively, they just didn't like it as much as you did. Always possible.
