What song can you live without ever hearing live again by the band?

I know...I know...but, there must be a song that you think "I don't enjoy this" or you are sick of hearing the band perform live...is there a track you could live without hearing again?

 

With this current tour coming up it will be my 8th tour in a row I have been to...and I gotta say...if I never hear Bullet again I wouldn't mind...

 

I never really connected with it I guess...and I have seen it in various guises...the "lalalalalalahhhh america!" version on Popmart...through the Mark Chapman version during Elevation right to the latest versions with Bono on either side of the barricade during SOI and JT30

But, I do think it is time to retire the song...

...and while we're at it...maybe Mysterious Ways too?

So many tracks could take their place that never get a look in...like Yahweh or Walk On or So Cruel...

I can't be the only one...what's your (possibly) unpopular opinion for a live track that needs retiring?!

Do tell... !!

is it complete blasphemy to say...Pride?

Nope. I second the motion to retire Pride. Older fans have heard it a bunch and for newer fans it's a relic of pre-JT U2. Having played it every gig since 1984 surly the band themselves are going through the motions at this point.

I agree but only because they seem to be performing it out of duty. On the I&E special Bono looked utterly bored singing it. I'd rather see them do a random song with enthusiasm than a hit on autopilot.

Pride and One both need a break, they are not the hard hitting anthems they used to be, as said above you get the feeling the band are a bit fed up playing them too and are just going through the motions.

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, With or Without You, Pride

I didn't hear One in 2015, so I don't mind if it stays around.  It would be nice, though, to hear something different.
