Reason number 198.3 why I hate U2


Today, at work, I was listening to www.wrsi.com (The River - adult alternative, like me) and they played a (fucking) U2 song. Now, don't get me wrong, Bono Nobel Peace Prize Hungry Edge Children In Africa Bill Live Aid Clinton Nuclear Proliferation Cowboy Hat Sunglasses and all that stuff, dude. "Uno, dos, uno-dos-tres-catorce!" Seriously.*


*I can only imagine that there have been countless observations years ago on this subject, but this was my first epiphany, so suck it.

Someday, remind grandpa here to tell y'all about the early 1980s, when U2 was not only cool but kind of amazing. After which, they were really quite good up through The Joshua Tree. After which, ugh, I don't know if the word "flaccid" is quite right but it's the one that springs to mind.

Hey, "Oklahoma" is the article of the day on Wiki. So, a proud day.

I have to agree with M5K's comment in full. Never has a band gone from really great to really lame to the extent that U2 has. (Well, maybe the Rolling Stones.) I was bored with U2, then the whole Negativland bullshit happened, and I began to actively dislike and boycott them. And then they put out the same song, slightly differently, for 15 years, and now I really hate them.

I use to love love love them back in the 80's and then they started disappointing with Achtung Baby and the Zooropa tour and I just tried to remember them like the parents who have a sweet young boy who grows up to be something you never envisioned for him.

I've spent so much time hating U2, being too cool for U2 (because Bono kind of makes me sick)... but I am glad I stopped all of that nonsense and just focused on their first four or so records. They truly are fantastic.

And why are you listening to crappy radio?

Hater. At least Celine Dion didn't appear on your Pandora. That is a soul numbing experience.

JHC said...

U2 is fucking horrible. Any good songs they may have done 25 years ago have been soiled by the fact that The Edge (nice name, asshole) only plays 3 chords and their songs all sound exactly the same. Douchebags.

Also, please write a new post so that prick isn't dominating the top of your blog?

cock punch! hahahaha! love it.

Please tell me you've seen the South Park they just did where they completely rip on Bono!

emertron said...

Oh thank god. I can not stand them and they're overplayed. I had a roommate who loved them & would play their shit constantly (this was 6 years ago). I finally cracked & made it stop.

The whole band (U2) began as saviors with their message of hope and anti-war, but because they soon found their validation not in their story but in who they became to the world, they went from wise to foolish, and have remained so to this day.

Seriously, I HATE freaking u2. I would rather force myself to live in a cave for eternity than listen to an entire song by them. And why is Bono, what the hell kind of name is Bono anyway, always wearing those damn sunglasses...a little Corey Heart, don' t you think. They're not talented. Even George Harrison sides wiht u2 haters. And I will be the first to statrt a revolt on banning their shit "music".
