Probably because they don't want us to kill them. Why, are you mentioning them now?

I have no idea.

And it's not like I said whether or not I like them.
I'd like to remain neutral

Ah, like Switzerland.

Well, U2 fall into the mediocre category for me. The guitar playing is good, the rhythm section is satisfactory and the singing and lyrics are (in my opinion) not any better than that found in your average unsigned band. I give them a C grade, good effort and attendance, but just don't have the ability needed to excel. The fact that they've become so famous with such a mediocre product suggests to me that they've been cheating.

I reckon that Bono is an ace computer hacker who hacks into the music chart databases to make it look like everybody's been buying their music.

U2 don't annoy me as much as some other bands because there are definitely worse out there. It's just their music isn't really my style I guess.
Granted I have seen them live and kinda liked it. . .

If you like Folk check out Cara Dillon. Incredible voice.

Well I guess I just learned somthing new today.

And the Cranberries are just tolerable. Nothing to write home about.

I'm suprised no one's mentioned U2 yet.
People here HATE U2.

I love U2 though... So i just learned to tune out the haters.

Piss Me Off made a good call on The Pogues and My Bloody Valentine... There are certainly others but i can't think of any at the moment.

But every country has their good bands... People who think otherwise are just dumb.

Now I'llg ive my two cent on U2. i think they're somewhat overrated. I think their music is positive and somewhat uplifting. But the tone of their songs is just too cherrry for me to handle.
They're pretty good live though. but I'd never go see them unless someone else was paying for the ticket. I'd hate to waste my money, much less my time to see them perform.

And I've only heard a few things by My Bloody valentine, and definitely not enough to from an opinion since the only times I've ever heard My Bloody Valentine, I was a little preoccupied or in an altered state of consciousness.

Ah the good old U2 Debate...

Personally, I think they're fine...I mean, they have Edge on guitar and he is a rather talented chap...Drums & Bass are average - There to support Edge...

And Bono is just not quite with it...sometimes he just completely loses it and sounds like a cut cat....other times, he has the voice of an ... ... Nevermind.

But, in my opinion, They've done well over the years - But I think it's time they gave it up.

U2 piss me off something shocking, it's more the hype over them than the actualy band, you know?

The Pogues
