Bank Of America's "One"

Say what you will about the current state of U2, but the band's 1991 track "One" is unquestionably a rock classic. That makes it all the more offensive when two Bank of America employees co-opt the song and turn it into an ode to a corporate merger. Never mind that the lead singer does a credible Bono: lyrics like "One bank, one card, one name that's known all over the world" make this an utter, utter train wreck and rock sacrilege at its worst.
