Here’s How to Delete That U2 Album You Didn’t Ask for From Your iTunes

CUPERTINO, CA - SEPTEMBER 09: Apple CEO Tim Cook (L) announces the free download of the new U2 album on iTunes as members of U2 The Edge (2nd L), Larry Mullen Jr (C), Adam Clayton (2nd R) and Bono as and look on during an Apple special event at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts on September 9, 2014 in Cupertino, California.

After five long, Bono-filled days of scrolling through your carefully curated digital music collection and seeing the blight of late-period U2 you never wanted, Apple has finally, mercifully provided instructions for how to free that space up for more Drake (or whatever). It’s as easy as uno, dos, tres, catorce! 

Recode and Valleywag point us to the company’s instructions, released Monday morning, after plentiful user outrage over the creepy auto-download:

 1. Go to
 2. Click Remove Album to confirm you’d like to remove the album from your account.
 3.  Sign in with the Apple ID and password you use to buy from the iTunes Store.
 4. You’ll see a confirmation message that the album has been removed from your account.

5. Cleanse palate.
