This is one of the most intelligent posts I have read in MB. It applies to so many threads.

To everyone who has posted here, thank you for enlightening me on your thoughts of U2. I agree that Bono can be a bit of a wanker sometimes (wanker = tosser to non-aussies) and I really don't go for all that "save Africa" propaganda. It's their music I love and not their political agenda. Yes some of their albums do sound similar but that is a reason why you like a band. I wouldn't want them to produce a completely new sound for each album. (They tried that with Zooropa and the least said about that the better!)

Full credit to the person who said "Their music does nothing for me." That is a much more respectable reason to dislike them than who the drummer was screwing or the ipod adds.

Anyway, thanks again for all your replies (even yours, Mr Hatemonger).

Half of these posts are just jumping on the bandwagon but hey I agree with a lot of the points. What I don't agree with though is that they haven't done anything worth noting, their early albums sound nothing like the radio friendly pop they produce now. If you haven't listened to 'War' before and hate U2 you might be surprised.

Without making derogatory or patronising comments, please explain to me why you dislike U2 or Bono. I'm sure you won't be able to change my mind about them, but I really am curious as to why they are so unpopular in MB world.
Because they refuse to make good music.

First of all, I agree with you on the part that U2's a good band that wrote some great songs throughout the years!!!

Now, in this time of their career, although they may be selling more records, I believe that the music isn't that great anymore!!!I liked the last album they put out in 2000 ("All That You Can't Leave Behind"), but think their latest album (2004's "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb") is a great example of the band no longer having any good new material to put out for it's diehard fans.

In closing, I would have to say that they were a great band of the past, but a terrible/mediocre band for the future!!! Their ticket prices make that more and more evident even to the diehard U2 fans...what a shame, ya know?

But haven't they all...or so I've heard?

I guess your last comment about Coldplay's a good point too...
...Coldplay simply sucks!!!

6. His mullet at Live Aid
7. How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb being praised to high heaven when even the most diehard U2 fans I know say it`s sh*t
8. Those f*cking I-pod ads
9. I hate being being told to donate money by multi millionaires
10. Brian Eno could have been working on his own albums instead of producing their crap.
11.Their first 5 or 6 albums sound identical
12. Their drummer was screwing Naomi Campbell , one of the most loathesome women on the planet.
13. Bono sueing a woman over a hat he`s not worn for 20 years.
14. Bono throwing a hissy fit over his line on the band aid record
15. He`s friends with Coldplay
16. Their music just makes me want to throw up

hope this helps
i was going to finally trawl through this thread and add an opinion, but luckily the 2nd post says all i ever could!!
