Most overrated song on Pop (Don't get me wrong, it's great but it's not in my top five or so on Pop, I think) vs what was the most underrated song on AB prior to 2011. EBTTRT all the way!

I agree with this, but i voted Gone just because I think its the better song all round.

I think Acrobat was and still is the most underrated song from AB.

The Real Thing even got a single release back in the day.

I always think of Even Better as U2 doing surfer rock.

I would say they are about evenly matched as all round songs, but I think if I attended a U2 show I would rather see The Real Thing more than Gone, and that is especially true prior to the 360 tour.  Plus, for me, The Real Thing holds more nostalgia than Gone does.
