IMO Boots is U2's absolute worst ever choice for the lead-off single, but though to me it's one of the weakest songs on the new album I don't think it's the worst track they've done.

CrazyTonight,are you saying that Boots is a cover?
I wouldn't know,all I know is for me,after one playing,its the highlight of the album! For U2 thats not good!

No JoshuasTree, its not a cover. I was just trying to say that there are a few average cover songs U2 have recorded in the past. Sorry about the confusion. Boots is all U2 and NLOTH features no covers. I think Rattle & Hum is the only "album" to feature covers, all the others [cover songs] are usually b-sides with singles. I actually really like Boots and the new album - just to clear things up
 :)
Ah my fault,I read the post wrong on my phone.

Haha, no problems dude...

Here's the deal. Boots is a pretty crappy U2 song with really lame lyrics. But it would be the best Beyonce, Kelly Clarkson, Nickleback, Kid Rock or Daughtry song ever.  :)

That's hilarious.  But since it's made just as many eardrums happy, then it cancels that out.

BOOTS is actually sounding better everyday. It's a darn good tune. It just shouldn't have been the 1st lead single. It was a different time when you could put out "The Fly" as your 1st single...and even then -that song didn't go over so well by the fans as a single.

All this best and worst stuff drives me nuts.  Just because I happen to like a song (or not like a song) does not mean it is good (or bad).  It just means I like it, that it moves me somehow. 

Stepping off my soapbox. 

No, Boots is not my least-favorite U2 song ever.  Grace earns that award.  But, that doesn't mean it's a bad song.  It just means I don't like it.   :)

one of the worst mistakes u2 have ever made was to make boots the first single from this album no doubt it affected album sales
