Who knew the absolute shit-show that would have resulted from this “big moment in music history” that we’re all now a part of (reluctantly, I might add).
So U2 gives away an album via iTunes, which doesn’t seem like much of a big deal, but their execution in the giveaway was quite flawed by pushing the album onto everyone’s device with or without their explicit permission. As a result, Apple had to actually create a kill-switch to remove the album from people’s iTunes libraries. As Brenda from “When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong” would know, “she don’t like people playing on her phone”.
Go here to get the album off your phone and quit bitchin’ already.
