I have known about this for some while, It being built like right down the road from me
#13
I like U2, but good God. I can think of 100 ways that 200 million euros could be better spent. Okay, not 100 ways, but you get the point.

And, not that this is relevant in any way, if you rearrange "Bono" it says "n00b".

I can add this to my ever-growing list of Bono's hypocrisy... along such gems as having a private jet fly his hat to him because he left it at home and wanted to wear it for a concert... :|
#17
it would probably be a cool recording studio and to the person saying something about giving the money to charity instead he could use money made after people buy apartments and give that to charity instead just saying

and why does everyone hate bono so much

How are they a supergroup, imo, they are quite boring.


They can't be a supergroup, supergroups are groups that combine members of already-popular bands into one big band.

Blind Faith was a supergroup. Audioslave. Velvet Revolver. Temple of the Dog. You get the idea.

Because he acts all high and mighty about his charity work and tries to persuade the Irish government to give money to the third world, all the while keeping his money overseas so that he doesn't have to pay taxes in this country to pay for the teachers that his children use and the roads that he drives his cars on.

Acid doesn't burn anything. It corrodes. It only feels like it burns.

You guys are all trashing Bono for being a douche - which he is - but I haven't seen anything that suggests he had anything to do with this yet. The Dublin Docklands Development Authority are the ones who want to build it.

For all we know, they just came up to Bono and said, "Hey dude. Wanna recording studio in the tallest building in Ireland named after you?" I can't fault him if he answered that question affirmatively.

Coming from the guy with the Tremonti quote


U2 are a great band - well not as much now but their 80s stuff is up there with the best,.

And I don't understand why everyone's such a dick to Bono. Yeah **** it he's building a lavish tower for 200m but he's still done more than a majority of celebrities and all of you to help this world.

EDIT : and jesus he's not even the one building it.U2's new recording studio is going to be on the top

The panel initially chose as winner an entry which was later disqualified after legal advice because the DDDA had lost the details of which firm had submitted the design and so were unable to notify the winner

If this shows the competency of whatever company will be building this. The building's gonna fall down in 5 years at most.

No he hasn't. He's a dick who doesn't even pay taxes.

2)make obvious punk puns, possibly related to food
3)make fun of Rancid and NOFX again
