Watch U2 and Elvis Costello mash up 'Pump It Up' and 'Get On Your Boots'

Posted on

On the season premiere of Elvis Costello’s Sundance Channel chat show, Spectacle, the boys of U2 joined the natty Brit and used the final musical performance to silence those gripers who thought “Get On Your Boots” was just a massive rip-off of Costello’s “Pump It Up.” Yeah, they sound similar. But if Elvis isn’t pissed, why should you be? Hey hey hey!

What do you think, Mixers? Awesomeness, or awfulness? And hey, are you watching season 2 of Spectacle? It’s pretty good, no? My favorite was watching the other two members of the Police restrain themselves from strangling a somewhat unrestrained Stewart Copeland last season. Do you have a fave moment from the show?
