I know this will turn into a U2 bashing thread, because that's what all the hip and cool people on FARK like to do, but let me state before that happens, that my boyfriend and I have seen them live several times and they always put on one hell of a show.  I think they're great.  You don't have to agree with Bono's politics (though we do) to enjoy their music, same as with any outspoken celebrity.

With Or Without You, Electrical Storm, Mysterious Ways, Lemon, Vertigo, I Will Follow, One, Numb....I could probably list about 20 or 30 more songs if I wanted to.

Every time Bono claps his hands during a U2 concert, a child in Africa dies.

Eh....its Fark. What do you expect?

There should be a list of what's approved to like and hate around here. Whether its logical or not.

Most of U2's music does nothing for me, but Bono can fark off and die for the tax dodging bullshiat and then going on about how we need to pay more to Africa.

Clinton should have been slaying more brown people during that time, amirite?

Clinton should be president.

It may just be me, but I found it wildly disappointing that this article wasn't about Chaz Bono.

I loved all the music U2 did up to and including Achtung Baby.  After that I tried very hard to continue liking them, but they just lost it, in my opinion.

/Honest question: Bono's been married forever.  Did he really pull much wool as a touring performer?
 
2013-09-25 11:30:14 AM  
Sounded more like he killed doing an impression of Phil Hartman impersonating Clinton.

He's cheated on Ali more than Clinton on Hillary. She puts up with it, for some reason. I personally think he must have a huge dick in addition to his huge bank account.

That's what I figured.  I just assume all wives of celebrities are like Carmela Soprano--they know what's going on and put up with it because they like money.  And people like Deanna Favre, Lynda Chmura, and countless other sports wives get upset when you compare them to prostitutes.

/It only took Lynda Chmura 10 years after him messing around with the neighbor's daughter to leave.

I heard Bono had tore his shoulder up pretty bad recently while trying to hug the whole world.

that wasn't too shabby. maybe a little too southern and ragged, but good for an Irishman.

He was one of the few good things about "Across the Universe".

Saw U2 live in 2011, amazing show. I knew it was going to be good, but it was FANTASTIC.

They pretty much all cheat on the road. If you are married to a musician, you'd better learn to ignore it cuz it ain't stopping.

Madewithrealbitsofpanther: Bono can fark off and die for the tax dodging bullshiat and then going on about how we need to pay more to Africa.

This x infinity. You can also add The Edge trying to circumvent building codes and planning rules for his patch of land in Malibu.

I mean, Elton John is getting ripped on various blogs because he's going to do two concerts in Russia and he's not denouncing the Putin regime loudly enough for some, yet Bono sucked up to human excrement like Jesse Helms, Karl Rove and others and people couldn't kiss his ass enough. Thing was, his whole plan was dumb to begin with! So what if you wipe out all the debt for governments in Africa, the infrastructure is rotten to the core, that money would get sucked up by oligarchs and warlords in a second. Colonialism was an utter catastrophe for Africa, throwing money at it isn't going to solve anything long term.

I liked U2 up to Achtung Baby, lordy they've been bad since. No, having two good singles doesn't make it a good album, Mr. Bono and Mr. Edge and the two other guys. Saw them live twice (The Zoo TV tour, Vertigo tour), the "Outside Broadcast" Zoo TV show was pretty spectacular but the Vertigo show was as boring as watching paint dry, Bono's voice was in tatters for a start.

I think most (not all) of the U2 haters are still in their 20s and didn't get to experience the good stuff in the 80s and early 90s as it happened. While I think everyone agrees that Bono is far too self-righteous to listen to speak, he's a fine singer and his band was awesome. Now they're like the Rolling Stones....sad shell versions of their youth. It's been nearly 20 years since I heard a song of theirs I like.

Saw the Achtung Baby (think it was called Zoo TV) tour when I was 17. It blew my mind, and not due to the explosions, giant video screen, or live phone call attempts to then President Bush, Sr. Not even singing "Satellite of Love" with Lou Reed via satellite on said huge screen. It was the band itself. Bonus: Public Enemy opened. Even at that tender age I was still amused to see tens of thousands of white people chanting "Fight the Power!"
