Reinvention of rock 'n'roll available as stream now

U2 have made new single 'Get On Your Boots' available for streaming online.

You can listen to the track via the U2 website.

Is it the promised reinvention of rock & roll? Is it bollocks, it sounds like 'Pump It Up' by Elvis Costello as sung by the Beatles, with a bit of noise and faux-attitude borrowed from Primal Scream. It sounds like a bunch of older gentlemen who ought know better trying to sound now.
