How did Bono, et al (or more probably, their record company) end up in bed with the WWF?

First, Beautiful Day.
Now, Desire.

What's next?

Sunday, Bloody Sunday for Wrestlemania?
Pride, In the Name of Love for the Valentine's Day PPV?

Get out of the garden, baby.
You'll catch your death in the fog.
Young girls, they call them
The Diamond Dogs.

Desire is the WWF's name for the videos detailing their stars.

Before using Beautiful Day for HHH, they used Creed's "My Sacrifice" for Taker and Austin. The Creed videos were called "WWF Desire" as well.

No matter how bad things may get, just imagine what would happen if Vince Russo was booking again, and you will feel better.

Desire IS being used by the NFL, along with Until the End of the World, probably to hype U2 playing halftime at the Super Bowl. Should be a lot better than that surreal thing from last year.

It seems to me that they should've saved "Cocky" for these nWo videos and No Way Out instead of using it for the Royal Rumble. It's seems to fit them more.

My money is that neither Creed or U2 will be in the video, it'll be whoever is the current "hot" alternative band right now.

Doesn't really matter to me how U2 got with WWF, cause it's better than any of that Limp Bizkit and Kid Rock Crap.

Desire IS a U2 song. I don't think they've used it as a promo video, though.


Oh and just my .02 but "My Way" while really annoying during the weeks before WMX7 really rocked at the show (check out the after show music video). But Kid Rock songs are really lame. Why the hell to they keep using him??

Since we're on the subject of music...

IF Benoit can make his return at WM, then it would be extremely cool if Our Lady Peace played him down to his new theme. Canadian band doing the new theme for a Canadian wrestler in Canadia. Canadian bliss!

"From The Vault" was my favorite segment on "Excess" and it's a programming idea that's got a helluva lot of merit.
