U2, one of my all time favorite bands. They have put out and will continue to put out some amazing stuff. With Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. they have an amazing line up.

My favorite U2 Songs:
-Vertigo
-Beautiful Day
-I still haven't found what I am looking for.

Discuss U2!
Fave Artists:
-The White Stripes
-Sublime
-Nirvana
-RCHP

Seems Bono only cares about the environment/people in Africa when he's got an album coming out...
And also they probably would find what they're looking for if they named the damn streets.

Sunday Bloody Sunday and Vertigo are killer songs.
Some Like It Hot...

Gibson Angus Young Signature SG
Gibson Les Paul Classic Antique
Gibson Faded 3 Pickup Flying V
Some Line 6 Amp...

There seriously isn't already a U2 thread? I haven't searched for one, but you'd think there would be...

anywayz first page lolz

edit: U2's pretty good too

@Kenan, I am pretty sure there is not.

@AC/DC73, Your statement about Bono is not true at all. He gives huge amounts of money all time.

I've been looking around for one of these for ages and never found one. Amazing band. Personal favourites are Bullet The Blue Sky(Rattle&Hum version), The Fly, Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For and probably With Or Without You

Seriously! No thread for one of the biggest rock bands around since now! What's this world coming to!

Anyway, anyone read their biography U2BYU2. It's really good reading what the Edge has to say except bono does tend go go on for a bit to long when he's talking...

^There much about the arguments during the making of Achtung Baby?

I searched the other day for them and the entry "U2" into the search engine heralded no results. That was before this was made.

The Rattle and Hum film owns. I love the "**** the revolution" speech, so intense. Bono plays more guitar than you think too.

Just acoustic? Or does he occasionally pick up an electric?

There isn't a U2 thread!?

I really loved How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb while growing up... I've listened to every song on that so many times I know them by heart. Prefer Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby now though. First page! Will track this thread for sure.

I don't know why, but Bono seems like a major douche to me. I know he gives a lot of money towards charities and stuff like that, so he should seem like a good guy, but he just doesn't to me. He seems like the type of person who loves the smell of their own crap.
Quote by Bloodavian
Its not about the Radio its about talent, the front man has a bigger vocal range than Micheal Jackson and he can sing from heavey metal to high pitched ...No.12 on the top 20 under rated guitarists of ALL TIME...etc

^Fail^
#23
@David, Why would he seem like that to you? He seems like a great guy to me, he has done great things, he has never really done anything to seem like a jerk. I really don't believe he is one.

The new single is pretty damn catchy. Was up at 8 o clock this morning listening to the world premiere It's a lot like Vertigo in many ways, and on first listen wasn't amazing. I listened to it again though and I'm impressed!

Not a fan of the new single, sounds too similar to Vertigo and the lyrics are very pretentious. I just hope that the rest of the album is different.

I've only listened to them intermittenly since childhood, but they're a great band. I re-listened to Achtung Baby recently and it's just as awesome as I remember. Love Is Blindness is absolutely amazing.
#31
new single is absolute muck. Wasnt to keen on their music in the first place, and Bono really out me off them. TBH this is just the nail in the coffin

@Jimmy, I don't believe it's crap at all. It sounds pretty catchy and allot like Vertigo, but not a unoriginal song at all.
