Ah, this thread is revived .. You guys do realize Boo Boo's last post there was made in 2006?

Anyways, I think U2 are underrated on MB. I think they have a lot of good stuff up until Achtung Baby and I do appreciate that a band like U2 could gain the sort of fame they did in the 80s. I mean, what else was on the lists at the time? Most of it was way worse and at least U2 had music with some kind of meaning and a conscience. You can complain about Bono being snotty or preachy or whatever, but chances are he's done a lot more for for people in need than you ever will. Give the guy a break.

I am, however, grateful that I know nothing about the hat, commercials, Bono's tedious speeches or anything much they ever did after Pop .. well, aside from the occasional song on the radio. They've probably been popular too long. When they were young, they were fresh, honest and opinionated with something important to tell the world. Most bands lose their creativity and drive at some point in their career and I guess that happened a long time ago. Also, you don't get cool-points for liking U2 these days.

Some day in the future, a new generation will probably rediscover their better stuff and they'll be cool again. I dunno, I think it's a real bad time for them these days.

The points Urban came up with are very accurate.

The albums all sound the same. He preaches to donate money when he make multi millions a year. Sueing people over a hat? Come on dude. Not to mention he has no voice talent that I can hear. I think they are kind of like the Metallica thing going on. They had their time in the lime light but don't want to leave so all of these homos keep buying their albums keeping them their when a much better band could be right in there.
Even though this U2 hating bandwagon is something I have grown to accept and tolerate.

This post infuriates me, for crying out loud, you better not tell me english is your first language.

Agreed, I think the hate has a lot more to do with their cult of personality than their actual music.

I think if they all died in a horrendous plane crash after Atchung Baby. Few people would rant about them like they do now.

I don't think of songs like "Sunday Bloody Sunday" or "Pride" typical sh*thead music.

Have you seen that South Park episode about Bono?

I bet you would have loved that.

I'm surprised how much hate U2 gets. I think it's more for their antics than their music.

I'm also surprised how much hate their album, "Pop" gets. I always thought it was pretty damn solid.
