List Rules Upvote the songs you think are the most underrated. Don't even think about putting One, Beautiful Day, or With or Without You on here if you know what's good for you.

With a band like U2, it's easy to focus on their abundance of hits. Their catalog has some of the biggest songs in history, but that doesn't mean everything else is chopped liver. Some of U2's most underrated songs are perhaps some of their best, depending on who you ask, of course. For a band like U2 that has so many songs, including many that haven't seen the light of day, it's easy for songs to get lost in the shuffle. At the same time, there's a batch of songs that for one reason or another, have been overlooked.

So what are the most underrated U2 songs? Well, this list can include any song outside of their greatest hits (reference Greatest Hits 1980-1990, U218, Greatest Hits 1990-2000, or any big compilation really) and that means even singles are fair game. You'll see a number of songs you're familiar with, and others you aren't. But that's the joy of this list. There are so many U2 songs - if you think one song is underrated, then add it! Vote or rerank this list to you how deem it to be fit.
