the Pop Will Eat Itself - U2 connection

Top Ten Uncredited Samples Used by Pop Will Eat Itself
3. . U2's Until the End of the World” [“Menofearthereaper”]
The rhythm of U2’s thinly disguised last supper story is laid under layer upon layer of beats, clanks, sparkles and shuffles. So clear is the lift that I cant help but wonder what punishment Bono decided to mete out upon the hapless Poppies when his lawyers pointed out the theft. I imagine he wouldve tried to fuck them over like he did Negativland had he ever actually been informed.




wow, ive always loved Menofearthereaper and never noticed the subtle bass lines riff... cool.
