Foo Fighter Says New U2 Album 'Sounds Like A Fart'

(Radio.com) Nearly everyone has an opinion on U2's new album. In case you were asking yourself, "What do Foo Fighters think of it?," you'll be pleased to know that there's now an answer - and it's just about the most concise review of U2 out there.

"I mean, I think they probably thought it was gonna be a great idea: 'Here's the deal: everybody who has an iPhone, gets your record. And they get it for free!'" he said. "And they thought, probably, 'Well that's pretty awesome!' but they didn't really take into consideration the Big Brother feeling that kinda goes along with like, '[In menacing voice] You have the new U2 record.'

"You couldn't get rid of it and they actually had to come up with an app to get rid of it, that's horrible." Hawkins didn't stop there. Read more here.
