MONO: I Will Follow by U2

Think you know a song — old or new — that deserves a shout? Send us your suggestions and why the songs are hot. We’ll post it on the site for the world to read.

THE SONG: I Will Follow,

WHO: U2.

WHY IT’S HOT: The second single off of U2’s debut album, Boy. The aggressive guitar licks. Energetic drumming. Even at this early stage, Bono was in full voice. One of the best U2 songs out there and the only one they have performed on every tour. Iconic album art as well.

WANT MORE? No offense to Prince or Dre or Snoop or anyone else who’ve performed the halftime Super Bowl show. The performance of this song during the 2002 Super Bowl stands as THE greatest halftime show. Right after 9/11. Context is everything. The Names are everything. You’ll have to check it out on YouTube though. The NFL blocks all of their content from streaming elsewhere.

WORDS: brice.
