Bono is a Dick

After my last post, I followed a few links and ended up at a shoddy video of Arcade Fire and U2 doing a version of Joy Divisions' 'Love Will Tear Us Apart'. Now, I like the first band quite a lot, and think the second band sucks in equal amount, but even I'll admit that U2 can do a passable song when needed, but fuck me if this isn't just awful.

However, this comment by Enrieby, some random poster on youtube, just make me laugh and made it all alright:

Now we know the reason Ian Curtis killed himself, after writing and performing one of the best songs ever, he looked into the future and imagined a day like this when a total dick like bono would do this to one of his songs.
