the greatest band in the world right now - while there's crappy nu-metal, corporate pop, hat acts, violence and kinky sex (and other things) glorifying rap, emo, poserpunk and other trash - then there's U2. They are true originals, their lyrics tend to lean to the spiritual side (as well as being mature and intelligent in the first place), and the guitarist is the aptly named "Edge". They hail from Dublin, Ireland and have been together for over 30 years and they still make top-quality rock and roll. That's right, the most innovative, original and inspiring rock supergroup in the past 3 decades doesn't come from America, doesn't come from Britain, but from Ireland. Imagine that. I saw them in concert twice and they kick the crap out of today's music anyday. Oh, and did I forget to say - U2 ROCKS!
Chuck: So what did you do this weekend?
Me: I went out to Oakland Stadium and saw U2.
Chuck: But I was at Yerba Buena island all weekend.

Absolutly the best band ever, Actually has a singer who cares about something and sings with a purpose, the greatest ever, period. Highlighted by the beautiful, rythmic guitar playing of The Edge, best known for his work in the first 1:47 of 'Where the Streets Have No Name".

Not known to be well-recieved by younger people (teenagers and below), but as they mature, they begin to like the band, and buy their albums.
Since you started listening to U2, I've begun to like it too.

A fantastic band that has created hot, artistic rock for decades - The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby prove this. HTDAAB is not the only album they've ever made. Bono is a megalomaniac, and a damn good one -one of the last great rock stars. Brian Eno doesn't work with just any old dip$hit.
Anyone who considers hair metal to be great music and/or listens to Motley Crue is not qualified to speak of u2.

or...

Bob Dylan told u2 their songs would be remembered forever. Hell, even Johnny Cash covered "One".

or...

The "uno, dos, tres, catorce" actually stands for the number of studio albums produced by u2. Very intelligent people create these albums, not jr. high Spanish students.
