I generally think U2 is one of the few bands in which 98% of the music they release is great, but there are a few songs I just cannot listen to at all.

Mine are, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For,

 :o  thats one of my favorites

No U2 songs make me cringe as of yet.

I can't say, because every time I decide that I don't like one of their songs, it somehow manages to become a favorite.
It's the same way with naming my favorite songs, they fall into and out of favor so often my head spins. Keeps thing interesting. I never hear an album the same way twice. :)

IMO, any song from Joshua Tree or Achtung that makes someone cringe? Makes me cringe. :)

No songs make me cringe as such, but the odd line does. Like "heavy as a truck" from Electrical Storm for instance. But for my money U2 have never written a song that's cringe-worthy in its entirety.

"Staring at the Sun" - never got the hype. Great idea for a post though because there really are few songs I'll skip over.

GOYB, Vertigo, ABOY, Sometimes, Miracle Drug, A Man and a woman, One step closer,  Peace on Earth, Grace, New York, and possibly the most egregious offender, Stuck.

Pride! it represents everything that can be dodgy about U2.

It's musically boring, overblown, full of conceit and the lyrics are factually wrong.

How can the same band have written 'Bad'... and on the same album!?


Now THAT'S an interesting one!

Just the way I feel - always time to go to the bar when that one arrives...

"Am I bugging you ... I don't mean to bug you.  Okay Edge, play the blues"  (Edge plays the opposite of the blues)

umm ... yeah.

I like it!

Actually, has the Edge ever played the blues?
