Band Aid 30: Twitter hates it and everyone involved. Predictably.
Yay! The long awaited(?) Band Aid 30 has been released and Twitter is being all too predictable…
Unable to help themselves in the face of an international crisis, Bob Geldof and Midge Ure have decided to remind us that it’s been ten years since they last pulled together a bunch of celeb randoms and asked them to collectively patronise Africa. Of course the Twitter response was typically British and utterly predictable.
Incase you’ve managed to avoid listening to the track, here it is for your listening pleasure:
Here’s our favourite bits of British wit/rage.
Band Aid 30 sounds like it was thrown together over a weekend. Oh wait.

The new Band Aid song is actually worse than Ebola so what’s the fucking point in that? — GusTheFox (@GusTheFox) November 17, 2014
We’re not entirely sure thats true.
Surely a portion of the combined wealth of these Band Aid wallopers could go towards tackling Ebola instead of the public having to fund it?

That old chestnut.
Bob geldof is worth £90,000,000 Bono is worth £300,000,000 Buying the band aid song will not cure Ebola. Goodnight. — SomeEvertonFan (@SomeEvertonFan) November 16, 2014
Bono & geldof could buy the life you live 50x over and still have money in the bank, don’t be guilt tripped into buying the band aid song.

This guy was really upset about it.
Preferably on vinyl or cassette we presume?
Where can I Illegally download that Band Aid Tune ?

Some just missed the point entirely.
The numbers hurt.
BOB Geldof wants every 1 to buy the band aid cd so more of our money goes back overseas instead of staying in the UK its a must not buy

Some would prefer it if we had Ebola.
