Bon Jovi are much more guilty of being mom rock than U2.

Would be a tragedy if in a cruel twist of fate if the U2 tour plane was shot down by a russian SAM near Moscow.

No more Bono to share his creative lyrics with the world.

Hot mom rock, maybe. IE, moms who in the 80s looked like this:



Whereas chicks who listened to U2 were way uglier and wet blankets - ie, didn't know how to party.

Zooropa is somehow tragically ignored by the world it seems. I don't get it.

It's their best album.

U2 was only ever cool if you were a gen-X'er going for a law degree trying to bang some barista in the 90s before that was even really a term

so yah U2 sucks and the people that like it suck

Captain Powers is an awesome name; Bono not so much.

I think Vertigo is the only U2 song I've ever heard and I suppose it's alright. Maybe I should listen to other U2 songs that are not Vertigo?

A lot of people are going to rightfully talk poo poo on Bono itt, but let's also take a minute to recognize how truly godawful The Edge is. "He uses so many effects, he's so great" says some dumb gently caress. Yeah, he has a PhD in sucking everything interesting out of rock n roll guitar and he hired a guy to operate his pedal board under the stage for him. Gulag his rear end already.

This. They decided to have some goddamn fun and try new things with Zooropa. Lemon and Daddy's Gonna Pay For Your Crashed Car are insta-classics. Also, Johnny Cash.

After Pop, they just went back to the MOR poo poo that got them famous in the 80s.

U2, much like Pink Floyd, are whiney hypersensitive babies that happen to be talented artistically thus rendering them tolerable.

Indeed.

Hey, legions of U2 haters!

Get baked, put on your "beats by dre", and listen to Zooropa. Prepare for a mind trip.

There's a documentary on Netflix called It's gonna get loud with The Edge, Jack White and Jimmy Page. You can see what a wanker The Edge is when he talks about his guitar playing. He's got stacks and stacks of effect machines. I really wished he would have spontaneously combusted in the presence of Page
