Sadly, the song sucks!

Bono Says U2 Oscar Win Would Be ‘Dream’
LOS ANGELES (AP) ó U2 has won virtually every music award a band can win, but front man Bono said an Oscar win would be the fulfillment of a dream for the Irish rock band.
“The Hands That Built America” is nominated for best original song. It was written for “Gangs of New York,” a mid-19th century epic depicting the struggle between Americans who called themselves “natives” and the Irish immigrants who were pouring into New York City.
“Our dream is that the Academy will recognize the fact that this song grew out of the story and the characters. It wasn’t just put in the film,” Bono told AP radio. “That’s what we’re most proud of.”
Bono said Oscars organizers have not contacted U2 about performing at the March 23 awards ceremony.
“It’s a nerve-racking thought. The only thing equivalent to it would be like playing the super bowl,” he said. “It’d be a hell of an honor if we’re asked to perform. I hope we will be.”
