U2 Bomb - Officially!

| Filed under: Kelly ClarksonBono

wenn1769116__opt1.jpg

The numbers are in and the results are disastrous for Bono and the lads!

U2's shiteous underwhelming new single, Get On Your Boots, has debuted at an extremely disappointing #21 on the Soundscan singles chart.

The song sold just 57,267 copies in the past week in the U.S.

By contrast, Kelly Clarkson's, My Life Would Suck Without You, is a massive hit.

The first American Idol has come in at #1 on the Soundscan singles chart and sold more than four times as many singles than U2.

My Life Would Suck Without You was bought (legally) by 279,605 in the U.S. this past week.

BIG difference!

Sucks for Bono.

    U2 forever!!!!



  3. 3

    It's about time, U2 has been coasting on their fame for YEARS!. Then again, now that they are possibly no longer relevent watch for them to get nominated for tons of Grammys. Just like Bob Dillion, and every other out of date singer that all the burned out old hippy grammy voters swoon over every year.



  4. 4

    The reason is simple: The new U2 just isn't very interesting music - and I am a huge U2 fan, have been since the 80's. I am disappointed in their latest offering. Maybe it's time to retire for them. I do actually like Kelly's latest- she truly has some amazing pipes.

    I stopped listening after Actung!Baby and they are looking a little long in the tooth is this comes as no surprise.Maybe they could go on Oprah?That would boost some sales.



  10. 10

    YAY!!! Kelly Clarkson FTW!!



  11. 11

    i just don't even want to know what their song sounds like with a title so strange.



  12. 12

    That's sad, but the U2 song is horrible.



  13. 13

    this site keeps going to some word press page!



  14. 14

    NEXT FUCKER



  15. 15

    Wow that is surprising, but go Kelly! It is amazing how long the fame has lasted for the first American Idol winner. www.carrielee.etsy.com



  16. 16

    So sad too bad………………



  17. 17

    u2 are a great band.kelly sucks.u2 maybe wont sell a lot in usa but they will sell in the rest of the world.europe



  18. 18

    Yay 4 Kelly!!



  19. 19

    I thank my lucky stars that I got to see U2 in 1987–pre suck days. After that, Bono just got stupid, and their music went stupid as well.



  20. 20

    No it sucks for you fats because they wont advertise on this site



  21. 21

    it's unfair to put the 2 acts together. First, radio is a big factor in charts now a days and lets face it–they like Pop and pop artists. Is a KISS Fm going to play U2 anymore? More than likely not. So, kelly they will and therefore her single gets out there more. it's not rocket science. It's the same reason Madonna's single did well when she had Justin, but her other 2 singles have bombed!

    and why r u all up in kellys ass again when u talked so much shit about her last album. And im sorry, but the single she had last time, doesnt sound much different than any of her other singles. they all have the same formula.



  22. 22

    Hahaha, Bono hate's being anything else but number 1. .. HE WILL KILL US ALL
    in the words of Bono "Yeah yeah yeah!!!"

    This sucks. U2 used to be huge. They used to be the biggest band on the planet. I don't want them to retire just yet, I want them to make good songs. What went wrong?? Maybe their next single will do better.



  25. 25

    Re: magicmike – BABAY MADONNA SELLS VERY WELL.IN THE WHOLE WORLD.REMEMBER CONFESSIONS ON A DANCEFLOOR?SHE DID IT ALONE AND IT WAS A SUCESS

    NICE NAME BY THE WAY….REALLY SMART! FUCKING IDIOT!



  27. 27

    Are you kidding?! Have you seen the career U2 has had. Even Coldplay tried to be them last year. Don't get me wrong, cuz I luv Kelly, but are you serious right now?!



  28. 28

    who farted?



  29. 29

    Re: Farts Smell..and I like it! – I'M NOT ORCHID…I WON'T TAKE YOUR SHIT GOT IT BITCH BOY? NOW ZIP IT AND GO SMELL SOME NASTY FARTS!



  30. 30

    This is hardly the first time a U2 song has done poorly on the charts. It happens to every band and musical "artist". Also, why are you bringing up Kelly Clarkson in this story? Are they competition now? Do they perform the same style of music? I like U2 and I like Kelly, but to draw a comparison that doesn't exist is kinda stretching a bit.

    Re: Frogger – so is my mother? You know my mother god help you! dummy!

    I love U2 and for all the good they do, I don't think that not debuting on the pop charts as #1 is a failure to them. I mean Womanizer is the stupidist song and it just shows what is popular music, SHIT.



  37. 37

    I bet Michael Stipe is smirking right about now.



  38. 38

    Everything since The Joshua Tree has sucked ass anyways.



  39. 39

    The song isn't too bad - sounds like a lot of their other stuff - kinda makes me naseous though - looking at these old men singing about sexyboots……. They should rename it and change the lyrics to something more suitable like "Constipation can be fun……join the holy chorus Metamucil everyone…."

    As if anyone in America knows what music is. You lot put Miley fucking Cyrus at the top of the charts. Some of you wouldn't know good music if it jumped out of your Starbucks and spat in your faces. U2 will be around long after Kelly Clarkson's 15 minutes are up. You have the Kings of Leon and it seems no one in America recognises what a great band they are. It takes the Brits and Aussies to tell you! Nope, you prefer Rhianna and the other carbon copies. No versatility at all. And the UK are supposed to be the ones who don't like change!



  42. 42

    My guess is Most Americans have had it with these HYPOCRITE, TWO FACED, LYING, BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE, commies?? I could be wrong this is just one mans opinion?



  43. 43

    Isn't the word BOOTS a euphemism for CONDOMS? Maybe this song is directed at the Gang of 12 1/2% ?



  44. 44

    I heard that song today and they can do so much better. It sucks!



  45. 45

    ARE YOU STUUUUUUPID OR WHAT? HOW CAN YOU EVER COMPARE KELLY CLARKSON WHIT A BAND WITH ALL THIS YEARS ON SCENE????????

    YOU REALLY SUCK PEREZ…THE U2 SINGLE IS BAD BUT C'MON.



  46. 46

    Single, schmingles.

    You wanna judge an artists success? Lets see how many arenas Kelly Clarkson sells out, and lets see how many U2 will sell out.

    Clarkson will be lucky to fill a 2000 seat hall, and U2 will sell out EVERY 15000+ arena they play, guaranteed.



  47. 47

    seeing as they are legends and worldwide superstars and she is barely known outside of america and will probably be a distant memory in 10 years, im pretty sure they wont be losing sleep over it



  48. 48

    can i just point out that this single isn't supposed to be on sale until the 15th february AND how much advertising have they done for this song? Not much is the answer.



  49. 49

    Who on earth thought "suck" would be good in a love song?? Oh I guess all 270,000+ people who bought it. Sheesh.

    Re: SophieJane – Hey Dick sucks my ass or suck my ass U2 rock and you should just go suck it if you think differently Best Irsih Rock Band in the world best band in the world U American fuckers can't see past britney or christina spears or shite like that



  51. 51

    U2=overated About time we all say a collective fuck off to Bono and the boys.



  52. 52

    Re: I am me – No the Pogues are the best Irish band ever.



  53. 53

    They shouldn't have scrapped Rubin's cuts. Everything he touches turns to gold.



  54. 54

    it's because U2 fans are starting to die from old age



  55. 55

    karma for creepy rich rock stars
    who change their base of operations to the netherlands to escape higher taxes
    as if they need that money which would really help in their homeland right now



  56. 56

    Its just so sad. U2 was my favorite for ever. They screwed themselves though. First they changed there music too much and now it sounds like the same old stuff but a little bit poppy. They should have stopped when they were ahead. :)

    Now she only has to sell 300 million albums to outsell their career output.

    That's beacuse BONO is trying to tell US Citizens who is the best and worst to run the USA. Fuck BONO go fix your own shit.



  60. 60

    Just an idiot could compare someone like Kelly Clarkson with U2. U2 are FUCKING LEGENDS, so what if their single is not selling well this time, no one can write lyrics like they do. Just listening to a song like "One" gives me goose bumps. This girl will disappear in a few years, but the best U2 songs will last FOREVER in the History of Music. Yes, it just normal that they get a little worse with time, just like any other great musicians like The Rolling Stones or even Bob Dylan… With time you just can't keep being as great as you were when you did your best work, but it doesn't mean that that great work has to be forgotten. That is the problem with this society, we don't have MEMORY, it's all about the newest thing… I have a great respect for U2 even if their last single isn't as good as other songs they did in the past…



  61. 61

    Thank God! I hope this means that people are wising up to the fact that these guys suck.



  62. 62

    U2 is your 'rents wedding music.



  63. 63

    And this is a surprise?
    1. They suck.
    2. They've ALWAYS sucked.
