Foo Fighters drummer describes new U2 album as being just "like a fart"

Songs of Incontinence?

Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins told 'The Music' that he listened to the new U2 album once, but he felt the way it was distributed freely into people's iTunes libraries left a sour taste in the mouth and marred whatever quality may be there.

He certainly didn't like the way it was pushed upon people and that it had echoes of George Orwell's 1984, a Big Brother feel to it, and  because of that, "it just kinda sounds like a fart any way you listen to it."
