U2 rocker Bono hates the line he battled Justin Hawkins to sing in Band Aid 20's charity song DO THEY KNOW IT'S CHRISTMAS?

The Irish singer famously fought The Darkness frontman for the right to reprise the line, "Well, tonight thank God, it's them instead of you" which he sang in the 1984 original - but he's now admitted he detests the lyric.

He says, "It started as a running joke, everyone knows how much I hate that line."
