    All four members of this band are very underappreciated IMO. Yea when they where young the musicianship wasn't always great but we all where young once.

    This must be the most hated on, well known professional bassist but here is some AMAZING playing on this song!

    That's a really good song. I was surprised to see Clayton using a 5 string- I can't actually speak to the bass part...either it was too far down in the mix, or these headphones are too low quality.
    I will say the lad has improved like 300% since I first heard him in the early 80s!
    Now, can we discuss razors and shaving cream?
    Bono, Edge, there's this thing called a RAZOR...

    35 years on stage teach you a few things.

    Yes, they play simple pop rock that works.
    Say what you want, any band that can come up with such stage antics and make them work earns its legendary status.

    You'd think the song is overdone with all the playing it received but they still manage to make magic out of it.
