    Man I hate this band.

    Almost more than I hate Pearl Jam or Nickelback.

    I think they're a solid live band despite the hate in here.

    I once read a quote from Bono.
    He basically said, "If you're rich in the US and other parts of the world, people aspire to be like you and give you respect."
    In Ireland, if you're rich like that, people hate you and want to kill you."

    lol, very enlightening indeed.

    that being said, Joshua Tree has such great material. pick a song.

    Wasn't really a fan of theirs but I love the Unforgettable Fire album and maybe a few tracks from October. I prefer their other comtemporary sound alike peers like The Alarm and Simple Minds

    in a little while & unforgettable fire are good.

    I kinda wish U2 did a collab with INXS or Duran Duran.

    Nickelback's lyrics are vapid as is their music. Extremely generic.

    U2 kicks ass though.

    One of the best promos WWE ever made

    I have a particular connection to Hold Me, Thrill Me. Batman Forever was one of the first big movies I can remember being excited for as a kid. I bought the CD and I'm pretty sure that was the first one I ever owned
