Hell hath no fury like an iTunes user with a free U2 album. For all the haters who despise the very concept of Songs of Innocence casually rubbing up against their curated iTunes collection, Apple just published a very quick one-click fix to rid your life of the Irish menace forever.
Though there have been slightly more involved ways to do this removal trick (i.e. just deleting it), the unadulterated anger at the thought of such an inconvenience has seemingly stirred Apple to action.
So without further ado, here you go:
- Go to http://itunes.com/soi-remove.
- Click Remove Album to confirm you'd like to remove the album from your account.
- Sign in with the Apple ID and password you use to buy from the iTunes Store.
- You'll see a confirmation message that the album has been removed from your account.
This will absolutely, positively wipe all evidence of this record from your account, so finally -- finally -- you'll be able to sleep at night after this traumatic week of complimentary music downloads.
