THERE’S been much chatter about Apple’s move to give away U2’s new album Songs of Innocence to 500 million iTunes customers in 119 countries to coincide with its iPhone 6 and Watch launch.

U2’s singer Bono (Mr G21) opined:

“People who haven’t heard our music, or weren’t remotely interested, might play us for the first time because we’re in their library,”

They might. But they might not know what a self-agandizing, moralising pillock Bono is. Happily, he’s here to explain:

“And for the people out there who have no interest in checking us out, look at it this way… the blood, sweat and tears of some Irish guys are in your junk mail.”

Let it bleed.

Although, you can now remove the theme song to globalised, corporate America.

But hold on a moment. Have we been here before? This picture has been all over twitter:

No. That’s a fake based on an Argos 1986 catalogue ad.

Yeah. One day your cutting-edge mobile phone will be as cool Bono’s wasabi enema. Auto Rewind, anyone?
