Pop.

It stands for everything U2 isn't. If they'd have called it "Rock" that may have been a genius move.

Maybe the reworked Pop they've talked about could be named "Rock"? (if they do it it better be good, also)

A man can dream...

Thats why they called it that. And the 3 albums after it could all have been called pop, as U2 became a pop band.

HTDAAB isn't the best name. But in the context of the time it was released, and with tracks like Miracle Drug, Love and Peace, Yahweh.... I get it....

Well....the title itself is said in Fast Cars..which they didn't bother including it on the album.

And HTDAAB is easily the worst title. And cover.

Htdaab = vertigo
Pop = staring at the sun
Rattle and hum = angel of Harlem (I guess idk. I'd have liked a title that wasn't a direct JT reference.)

Yeah I wish they had included Fast Cars... And while I agree that the name is a bit much, the pic is not as bad as SOI. Just my opinion.

How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb. The first time I read that title I was sure there had to be a misprint somewhere... Mostly it's an annoying title to me because none of the songs tell you how to dismantle an atomic bomb. :P

Toss up between Boy and HTDAAB, but I  chose the later. I don't hate it like some of the others on here, but I suppose if I had to choose one, that'd be it.

Bomb - the only album that ever did that's full of average fillers
