U2's New Song Is Tanking on iTunes

| Filed under: Music MinuteBono

Looks like we're not alone in the dislike of U2's latest single, Get On Your Boots!

The song made its debut earlier this week and it's currently sitting at the lowly #37 position on the iTunes singles chart.

Kelly Clarkson's, My Life Would Suck Without You, on the other hand, which also debuted this week, is at #1.

How do you like that?

A pop tart bested the music giants!

  13. 13

    They both are garbage



  14. 14

    U@ hasn't put out a good song in a decade, the ONLY reason we have to keep hearing about them is because the grammy judges are a bunch of burned out old gasbags who have no idea that time has passed.



  15. 15

    Harry's malaise is catching, cause I don't care either!

    BONO needs to STFU. He's a massive blowhard. Talented? Yes. Douchey? You know it. Go watch the video entitled "Hey Bono, stfu, thanks!" over on YOUTUBE.

    I think U2 is one of the most overrated bands in music history.



  19. 19

    The song is boring…..nothing special about it. U2 was good once upon a time but there isn't a band out there that doesn't have some not so good albums/songs!

    Instead of writing a stupid comment, why not just say "nah nah na nah nah" or "told ya so!".
    That's what your really saying about everyone anyway.
    puke.



  21. 21

    MAYBE BECAUSE U2 SUCKS NADS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: wipwip
    lmao! well, said. with spittle. hehe



  23. 23

    umm… it's probably because kelly clarkson is listened to by the average age of itunes users… like 16-25. this is barely celeb gossip thou…



  24. 24

    BONO, THE EGO MANIAC, "HAS BEN" IS NOTHING MORE THAN AN OVER-RATED SEMI TALENTED MEDIA WHORE! LOOK AT THE IDIOT AND HIS RIDICULOUS GLASSES! WHAT A FOOL!



  25. 25

    Love what bono does with world hunger and peace….but U2's music is bleh…always has been.



  26. 26

    i dont even like U2 but in defense to them…I-tunes is more youth driven. Cant beat a couple of hundredthousands of girls against more adult fans.



  27. 27

    U2 blows Irish donkey balls.



  28. 28

    maybe obama will spread the wealth his way…..



  29. 29

    Re: guilty of being white – Yo Dude F U Kelly Clarkson my life wud suck wit u but my life wud suck wit out U2. Bono and co are cool so feck you all who think otherwise. Our day of reckoning wil come and the Irish will rule the world!!!!!!! Even if it is only forone day on March 17th St. Paddys Day. Green is Keen so long live the green!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    U2 is awesome and will always be a part of music history, K. Clarkson on the other hand is just a dime a dozen singer who will be long forgotten, one of many one or two hit wonders. U2 is talented, there is no comparison Perez, what is wrong with you?



  31. 31

    U2 is number three on the Canadian iTunes sales charts. Don't make it sound like the song is not a hit anywhere. I like Kelly's song, but Get On Your Boots walks all over her!



  32. 32

    Ummm… their album was #1 and #3 on I-tunes yesterday and the day prior… if you pre-ordered either the deluxe or normal version, it also included the new single. SO, it is selling more than you're making it out to be. Check the facts, Biatch!



  33. 33

    Yeah Kelly rulez!



  34. 34

    i dont really lyk her single but im a fan of kelly =)



  35. 35

    U2 had their time, let others shine for a while..



  36. 36

    U2 hasn't done anything truly remarkable since The Joshua Tree …. everything after that was all MASSIVE EGO's and self-promotion and resting on their reputation ….



  37. 37

    Are people starting to grow weary of these Hypocrite Elitists telling US what to do when they don't do the same? Oh I forgot THEY ARE SO SPECIAL, SORRY?



  38. 38

    Who cares about U2? We're in 2009. They sound 82.

    Re: Sedona
    You speak truth



  40. 40

    It's funny how in here you state the song sucks, but it's in the top 5 tracks all over Europe.
    What is Kelly ranked outside the states? (rhetorical)



  41. 41

    U2 and Bono peaked about 8 years ago, they've gone downhill ever since.

    Well that's because the Yanks wouldn't know real music if it jumped out of their Starbucks and spat in their faces. Manufactured Simon Cowell shite Kelly Clarkson or U2…hmmm tough one. Its reasons like this that the likes of Kings of Leon and The Killers prefer to be in the UK because they get noticed and not sidelined for Miley Cyrus or Rihanna.

    Too many lil punks out there. Pop tarts like bubble gum.
