The 11 Best U2 Songs (90s)

The 90s were a time of anti-establishment. As many of us fought conformity by wearing flannel, drinking Starbucks, and listening to Nirvana...U2 went on a journey of self. Who were they really? Rock or dance? Bono or Memphisto? Lemons or pop? And did we ever get an answer?

As I relistened to U2's more elusive years, the most common reaction to the music was..."oh yeah, I remember that song." That's not to say the music was forgettable. It was just...not that memorable. But with a bit of perspective from their modern sound, some the songs shine through
with more than a strength of nostaglia. Not their strongest work (well, later in the decade) but not in any way their worst.

Here are the 11 Best U2 Songs (90s):

1. One (Achtung Baby)
2. Until the End of the World (Achtung Baby)
3. The Ground Beneath Your Feet (Million Dollar Hotel)
4. Do You Feel Loved? (Pop)
5. Dirty Day (Zooropa)
6. Ultraviolet (Achtung Baby)
7. Stateless (Million Dollar Hotel)
8. Last Night On Earth (Pop)
9. Paint It Black (Achtung Baby B-Side) MP3
10. The First Time (Zooropa)
11. Gone (Pop)

I totally agree with the Anonymous above. IMO the 90's list has only one contender for the "Best U2 song" list. This is "One", though in my personal favourites it would probably make the top 3...
