U2 And Oasis Blasted In Worst Lyrics Poll

U2 and OASIS have been criticised for their hits in a British radio poll to find the worst song lyrics ever written. "I've got no self control/ Been living like a mole" from U2's Elevation, and "Slowly walking down the hall/ Faster than a cannonball" from Oasis' Champagne Supernova have been nominated as the groups' most derided lyrics. Other contenders in the BBC 6 Music's worst lyrics poll are ABC's That Was Then But This Is Now, Snap's Rhythm Is a Dancer, Razorlight's Somewhere Else, Des'Ree's Life, Human League's The Lebanon, Duran Duran's Is There Something I Should Know, Black Sabbath's War Pigs and Toto's Africa.

When I heard about this I wondered which song it was going to be & was very surprised it was Elevation. If you listen to these lyrics within the context of the song, they fit in very well.I can think of far worst they have done, like Bullet the Blue Sky. But as Smokey says, I'm sure they can rise above it.
