Apple allows users to delete unwanted U2 album

Don't want the Apple 'gift' of Bono's latest self-righteous rumblings? Here's the solution

Just like the Christmas gift you received from your crazy old uncle that neither understands, nor cares what you want, Apple's unsolicited 'gifting' of U2's latest album 'Songs of Innocence' to users worldwide has upset many fans who crave a clean collection of music, unsullied by Bono's self-righteous lyrics.




Now Apple have sought to quell the unrest by releasing an online tool which permanently deletes the album from your iTunes account and can be found online here. After logging in with your account details, the album will be as forgotten as U2 were before last week.




According to those in the know, the "free" album cost Apple somewhere in the vicinity of $100 million dollars. Chump change to be sure, but perhaps fans would have wanted something else. Or donated to Ebola research. Or something. Anything.
