U2 has been playing on Letterman all week. New York City named a street after them. They are everywhere. What a machine. When a band is this big—you just have to admire how it all unfolds.
I noticed their new album, No Line on the Horizon featured on the Qtrax homepage a few days ago. I also noticed that their first single, “Get on Your Boots” was one of the top downloaded songs on Qtrax. So, here we are. The biggest band in the world is knee deep in a massive media push to promote their new album. You practially can’t turn on the TV or computer and not see them. You can’t turn on the radio without hearing them. Hell, I saw Bono floating in my Fruit Loops this morning. And you’re telling me that I can download the entire album on Qtrax for free? What’s the catch?
Well, it did take nearly one and a half minutes (two minutes less than the top 10 list), and who the hell has that kind of time?
