I never skip a track on Achtung Baby, but will skip Babyface off Zooropa and If God Will Send His Angels off Pop.  However, since 2000 there are more than a few tracks I'll skip and would be fine if U2 never played them live. Some are too slow, boring, have cringe worthy lyrics, or are too religious.  I'm curious to see which ones you feel strongest about.

Stuck in a mid Tempo piece of crap tune you can't get out of.

Unfortunately it's albums that I've been skipping since 2000 onwards.

Well the worst (and there is plenty to choose from) aren't on your list IMO...but out of those that are POE and Yahweh are the two for me.

Toe curlingly bad, both of them - really poor stuff.

Wild Honey. It's probably my least favorite track of theirs from 2000-2014. I don't care for the lyrics, I don't care for the melody, I don't really care for any of it. It's too poppy and without any substance to justify the poppiness.

At least with PoE and Yahweh, the lyrics have some substance. Not my favorite tracks by far, but they're listenable.

Got to be Yahweh for me, one of their worst songs ever.  The others on the list all have a certain charm to me.

How in the name of God does this poll sum up the worst songs of the 2000's when there are so many sh** songs?

White as Snow is just so slow and boring and a copy of O Come Emmanuel. 

The chorus of Yahweh is pretty bad but a few of the verses are ok.

Well yeah, but U2 are far from the first artist to take a melody from a classic song and apply it to their own song (there's a Springsteen song that melody-wise sounds a lot like, I think, Ave Maria? It's been a while since I listened to it). Not that I agree with it, and WaS isn't one of my favorites.

Agreed on Yahweh, but I kinda view that song like 40. Simple, but for religious folks, it's a nice song.

A lot of people are mentioning Peace On Earth... a song that's so boring I literally cannot even remember how it sounds. For that reason, I went with SFS (it is a fresh turd) and Wild Honey. Almost went with Yahweh over the former.

Same here. White as snow does not belong on the Top Turd list in my opinion.

Yeah, I actually like White As Snow.  At least it's them trying something a bit different.

TIWYCFMN is the only one in the list I don't like. All the others I quite like.
