I was driving home earlier from work and one of the radio stations was playing one of their newer songs (From the last album I think....)

What the hell happened to this band?

Their heads disappeared completely up their own asses. It happens*.

*see Metallica, Van Halen, et al.

Now? They've always kind of sucked.

What if they've always sucked and it's just that your taste in music sucked the same way?

shortly after the joshua tree album came out, bono swallowed a bad load and went full retard.

Sadly, unlike Francis Gary Powers, they have yet to be shot down.

Bono's doing a pretty good job of that himself.

Yeah, they've always sucked.

I think they decided to go full suck when they were partially through writing Joshua Tree.

I agree, OP.  I like a bit of older U2 -- hell, even up to about 15 years ago.  Everything since then has been shit.

I disagree. What's happened at least until the last couple albums was they became a singles band. Achtung Baby was a great album, Zooropa had a couple good songs but was forgettable, POP....Same thing. The album they put out in 2000 was ok but it was better live (Saw them twice in 2001) The album that came out after that was generic U2 at best and researching the most recent album they put out

 






Also you see the crowds that go to see em now they want a greatest hits set.

Self righteousness.

To be fair, Bono advocates capitalism as the best way to lift developing countries out of poverty.  He's got one redeeming notion.

But surely we can all agree that "The Edge" fucking sucks, yes?

I try, and I suck too... LOL

But even "The Edge" admits he can't read notation and just strums. I kind of admire him for getting as far as he has.

Nevertheless. He sucks.

You grew up and angsty, whiny, potato eating lyrics just don't  do it for you any more?

U2 has always sucked.
Link Posted: 1/27/2014 11:31:52 PM EDT
U2 is like forrest gump....FUCKING SUCKS!!

ok to be fair edge is a bitch... bono is a huge bitch... it is like the rest of the band does not exist..

Honestly nothing worth a fuck after Joshua Tree and even then the majority of the shit is just shit.

I remember looking at a musican co worker and asking how the shit like U2 was possible when the edge could barely fucking play.

They would have to have been good at one point to start sucking now.  Since they never were good, they can't start sucking now.

He has a distinctive sound, either you like it or you don't.  There's only so much you can do with it.  I like everthing on their first couple albums (Boy through UFF).  Joshua Tree is almost all good as is Actung Baby, after that they got spotty.

Nowadays, they're Generation X's Rolling Stones, i.e., have engaged in unintentional self parody and should have quit decades ago.
