The band plays with a passion for the music and they actually have talent, unlike most of today's artists who care more about the bing-bing and the drugs.
1)Releasing many successful albums over 2 decades and continuing to perform their beautifully constructed songs with passion and a complete genuine belief in their lyrics- one of the greatest rock bands of our time.
some people (usually people who dislike Bonoand are so busy calling him a pompous self righteous arse that they fail to realise that they themselves are behaving like pompous self rightous arses.....or people who are half deaf) would use this definition for U2-
2)U2 r a overrated sucky Irash band wiv know talunt. Whhadayamean I cant sppell? I can sppell as gud as I can revew moosic...
Definition number one is probably the more popular of the two. Mainly because it is the most accurate one.
2)"I hate U2...their lyrics are dumb. But the Wiggles rock my world. So deep..."
2) One of the greatest rock bands ever, maybe even the greatest. I know they're the greatest band ever to come out Ireland, they achived popular sucess and much fame... however, they don't care about the money or the drugs, they care about us and our world... they have a great political stance.. Bono stands up for many causes escipally in thrid-world countries (mostly African).
2)"I'm gonna go get How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb when it comes out beucase U2 rocks."
Mention of this band generally polarizes opinion, with die hard fans referring to them as the greatest band in the world and non-fans referring to them as the worst, most pompous, least talented or most annoying band in the world. (U2's political activism produces the same disparity of opinion.)
NOTE: The second paragraph of this definition can be applied to most rock bands and various other celebrities, because it is apparently not enough for the human animal to say, "No, I don't care for ____" (fill in the blank) and leave it at that; the dislike must seemingly be expressed in hearty invective and insults as creative and inflammatory as the writer can produce. This behavior can be noted in most entries at Urban Dictionary which concern rock bands.
Non-fan: I hate them, they suck, they're awful and talentless and ugly and stupid and annoying and... (and so forth.)

In 1980 U2 released its first album, Boy. Since then, their most famous works have been The Joshua Tree, 1987, Achtung Baby, 1991, and All that you can't Leave Behind, 2000. U2 have sold more than 50 million albums in the United States and their tours often sell out quickly. Currently, U2 is still active and working on a new album. Their lineup has remained the same since 1979.
