Last week, with U2 bringing their 360° Tour to stadiums all across North America and Bono and the Edge on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone, we asked our readers to tell us their favorite songs by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Irishmen. After tabulating the votes, it seems like we’re all in agreement: “Bad” is really good. The Unforgettable Fire centerpiece, a six-minute masterpiece that was never even released as a single, was voted the fan favorite, beating out radio hits and classics like “One,” “With or Without You” and “Mysterious Ways.” Both Achtung Baby and The Joshua Tree landed five songs on the Readers’ List.
