Songs like Bad and With Or Without You are great songs, some of their greatest.  But they'll never reach the power of Streets in a live show, everything about this song is epic during the show.

Bad (VERY closely followed by Streets!) 2 of the BEST live songs EVER in my opinion.

Streets. But I think this list should include "40", the ultimate U2 concert closer.

Bad is my all time favourite song . That said my vote went to 'streets ' . I think Bad losses some of its power if they play it too much and when they do play it now live it makes it that extra bit special .
Streets is always a highlight of any U2 show .. In Hawaii it was so uplifting that it brought tears to my eyes ( partially for personal reasons which I won't go into here )
So yeah NEVER remove 'Streets'

The popular one is going to be Streets.  I chose Bad.

I think they should all be removed from the setlist.  U2 has so many great songs, it would be great to hear songs that are rarely played.

This post is what we like to refer to as a retorical poll! Anyone who's ever seen or heard U2 live, will say Streets.  Doubters should go and look at Super Bowl 2002.  End of story!  :-\

Streets, but not because of the Superbowl performance for me.

I had to with With or Without You. I understand why almost everyone picked Streets, though.  :)

I couldnt vote, I couldnt make up my mind between Beautiful Day and Streets.  Both are epic, cant pick one or the other''
