Standard single elimination tournament. Matches will be open for approximately 24 hours. Songs include every studio track from the formal albums, plus all the b-sides included on the greatest hits compilations. I know there are songs missing, including some really good ones, but their overall catalog is too massive and I don't know all of it

Ties will stay open another day unless they are delaying the advancement of the tournament, in which case we will move to two hour overtime increments.

Seeding was completely random

Live covers from Rattle and Hum, etc. are not included. Studio covers are. Vote for whatever version of a song you want.

It's been a long while since U2 got some extended serious listening from me. I'm looking forward to it. It's easy to forget how much top shelf music they've made

If anyone needs a u2 refresher be a to check out the "U talkin u2 to me?"podcast.

It's a comprehensive and encyclopedic compendium of all things U2.

Created an account specifically to get in on this action. Invited by PHATJ, so blame him. I like PJ very much, but U2 was my first favorite band.

ZooTV is just an incredible production and performance, it never ceases to amaze me. And then came Pop Mart and totally lived up to it. :shock: :heartbeat:

I was just thinking the other day about having a ticket for one time machine ride to either ZooTV Sydney or PopMart Mexico City.







ZooTV.

I agree. But goddamn is it close. Macphisto really is a game changer though. And I fucking love the Zooropa and Achtung stuff live.

Please (on Pop) was the last great political song U2 made. It doesn’t get enough credit. It’s a powerful tune too.
