Perhaps inspired by Bill Gates' charitable work following his Microsoft rise, Apple provided an act of charity coinciding with the unveiling of the iPhone 6 and iWatch, giving four elderly Irishmen the opportunity to feel like relevant rock stars by loading their lifeless music onto a half-million iTunes accounts as free spam for users. If this were 1983 U2, that would be an exciting prospect. Free War!

But this is 2014 U2, and everyone agrees their new album Songs of Innocence is steaming garbage (everyone except fogey-rock flag-wavers Rolling Stone, who laughably gave it 5 stars). So the free "gift" has iTunes users scrambling to figure out how to delete this beige stain from their iPhone. Apple, always quick to serve its subjects, er, customers, has relented and hilariously developed a customized doomsday button to remove the album, which comes with the following disclaimer:

If you would like U2’s Songs of Innocence removed from your iTunes music library and iTunes purchases, you can choose to have it removed. Once the album has been removed from your account, it will no longer be available for you to redownload as a previous purchase. If you later decide you want the album, you will need to get it again. The album is free to everyone until October 13, 2014 and will be available for purchase after that date.

So head here to get rid of this album of live sports programming bump music.
