Follow these instructions to remove U2’s “Songs of Innocence” from your iTunes music library and iTunes purchases. 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.
It was incredibly difficult to get the U2 album off an iPad. I was finally able to find an ENTIRE HELP PAGE at Apple just dedicated to a specially created tool made for the sole purpose or removing the U2 album. I share it with you in hopes it saves someone else the trouble.
I don’t actually hate U2, I do a little bit now.
