The 9 funniest reactions to Bono writing a coronavirus ballad
U2 frontman, Bono, has dropped his first new recording in three years, with a song inspired by and dedicated to the quarantined Italians who have been sharing music from their balconies.
AS far as we’re aware, it’s the first mainstream music to have arisen as a direct result of the coronavirus. Here’s how the news was shared.

If I die from the Coronavirus I would like Bono to sing this at my funeral.

Ways to defeat Bono:
– wash your hands
– observe self-isolation
– keep him away from the elderly and immunocompromised
– call 111 if you show sudden and persistent signs of Bono (wearing sunglasses indoors, offshoring business for tax reasons, compulsion to call Salman Rushdie) https://t.co/oX8Hn5cO4E

If you don’t encourage Bono, he’ll go away eventually.

Ciara Dunne had her a rather more serious point to make.
Maybe Bono should spend less time writing coronavirus ballads and more time paying his taxes in Ireland that will be used to help our stressed out healthcare system. THE POX. https://t.co/v7fuzAl7Om
