How to Delete U2’s New Album From Your iTunes Library Forever

Apple iPhone 6 Event - U2

If you’re upset that Apple handed you U2’s new album “Songs of Innocence” for free, and totally hate it appearing in your iTunes library, then you can now remove it. Keep in mind, however, that unless you actually download the album for offline playback it really isn’t taking up any space — it’s just an option. Still, if you dislike Bono’s voice and just want to send the album to the trash bin forever, here’s how.

Simply navigate to and click “Remove Album.” That’s it. You’ll never have to see “Songs of Innocence” in your library ever again. You only have one month to reconsider turning your back on Bono. Apple said that the album will remain free until October 13, after which customers will need to purchase it.

Me? I’m not much of a U2 fan and I even joked I wouldn’t download the album if Apple paid me $1. I was only kidding, though, and I don’t really mind getting a free album. What are your thoughts on Apple’s decision to give the album away to everyone, at the cost of $100 million to itself?
