I know there are some folks on the boards that don't like em but I say this if you don't like em because of Bono's politics......GET OVER IT!


I was born in 85 and U2 was one of the bands that I grew up listening too. They may have stalled as far as studio albums are concerned but still one of the best live bands on the planet! Joshua Tree & Achtung Baby are two must have albums

They are a good band.

Probably the best group I've ever seen perform live. But as you said, that is politics aside.

they were amazing years ago, unfortunately I made the mistake of seeing them a couple years back, and that totally ruined my memories of previous concerts (80's and early-mid 90's) I had attended, to put it mildly...THEY SUCKED!

"Joshua Tree" was the last album of theirs that I like. After that, Bono seemed to fall in love with himself and take himself waaaaay too seriously. That, and the stupid Goo Goo Goggles he took to wearing.... "War" is one of my all time favorite albums.

Best halftime show ever

We had 3 kegs, 160lbs of crawfish, a shot block, gumbo, brisket, and beer butt chickens for that Super Bowl.

During halftime, I don't think a word was said as everyone stopped what they were doing to watch...

My politics kinda steer me away from them nowadays. I listen to their old stuff quite frequently but the last time I saw them was Zoo TV and they could still do their older stuff really well then. Saw Public Enemy too at that one. Strange combo...

U-2, not just a band.

"Dragon Lady" baby! Takes a man to fly this bad boy.

Never really cared for them, but then again my childhood memories don't revolve around U2.
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 6:17:21 AM EDT
Politics aside, they make garbage, uninspired, vapid music.
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 6:24:24 AM EDT
Loved their 80's stuff. Joshua Tree is in my top five favorite albums. Their stuff the past decade has been mostly bland and uninspired.
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 6:27:41 AM EDT
What I've listened to of their stuff is good.
Link Posted: 9/13/2010 6:45:26 AM EDT
I hate them because their music sucks. Way too much reliance on tech vs actual skills with instruments (as admitted in multiple interviews).

oh also, bono's voice sucks.

I don't like U2 because their music is terrible. I can't stand that crap where he closes his eyes super tight while rolling his head back and singing some stupid "emotional" babble.

It's fucking annoying.
