OK, we all know An Tha loves to hate elevation (the mods secretly think he actually likes it but won't say) - SO:

What's your "Elevation?"

Love Rescue Me would be the closest thing, but I don't really "hate" it.
so far away from believing that any sun will reappear

The Sweetest Thing.  I've convinced this song and the retro 1980-90 compilation album were the start of the rot that set in.  That album will forever remind me of the Old Sailor pub in the Amsterdam RLD, because when it was first out the guv'nor never stopped playing it in the pub, along with Ajax songs.

What about the one with the megaphone?

Peace on Earth.
Listen as Hope and Peace try to rhyme,
Listen over marching bands playing out their time.

Everyone hates the songs about love and peace.  ;D
The Edge: [Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, You know what? Were not going to second-guess any of this. Lets just go for it.

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.

The Showman

A close second would be When Love Comes to Town.
I feel my luck could change.

I've had my say on what I don't like about u2 over the years and I'm happy enough to leave it at that.

But just this once...😀

I'll go for two categories. 1) U2 trying to come across all arty and falling flat on their faces: the hands that built america.

2) the saccharin u2 which I don't particularly enjoy: the best thing about me.

I don't particularly 'hate' any u2 song. I just prefer the rawer side of the band.
