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!

Me: I went out to Oakland Stadium and saw U2.

The best band in the world.

U2 is a four member Irish rock band that has been fairly successful so far. I wouldn't go as far as calling them the best band in the world, But they are in the top 5 anyways.
Hey dude, Hear about U2?

Yeah. They rock.

The worlds greatest ever rock band. Originally called Feedback, then The Hype, before changing their name to U2.

A group of four people who fight for what they believe in.

The best known songs include Vertigo, Pride, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Beautiful Day and Where The Streets Have No Name.

Have released the following albums (in order - compilations and singles are not included)

The Unforgettable Fire
The Joshua Tree
Rattle And Hum
Achtung Baby
All That You Can't Leave Behind
How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb

The best loved band internationally, who are famous for not being afraid of their political stances.

Composed of Bono, Larry Mullen Jr., Adam Clayton and The Edge.

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.

Alright, I have this settled.

U2 is a great band, I don't care how much you deny it, but they've been around for a long time, and have had a wide variety of music. Their newer stuff is not too good (Pop, Zooropa, All that you can't leave, How to Dismantle), or mediocre for U2, but people act as if they are new because of their song Vertigo.

Overall, I'm tired of people saying "OMGA HE SEZ CATOARCE DAT MEENS FORTEN NET FOR", I have news for you, fuckwads. He says fourteen because it's their fourteenth album, so quit bitching. You really think that over many many times of listening and executives overviewing it before it being released, no one would have noticed?

Goddamn, don't listen to everything your precious, reliable, VH1 says.
Yeah, this is totally an example. Really.

Dudes, those of you that don't like U2 and come on here and talk about it.....get a life, why even bother trying to put down something that you know nothing about.
"U2 sucks"-they might,but find something you are interested to talk about...or just get a life
