The "U2 suck" thread

Since it's impossible for some people to refrain from shitting on the band, even when others ask for positivity, I thought it might be good for them to have a place where they can do that freely and share their experience with likeminded people.

Have a blast !
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

The irony of this thread is, could be, that somewons will be in here defending them as soon as a person does as the thread instructs them too  ;D

Ha!

U2 do "suck" now IMO - but it wasn't always so, as much as i don't like what they have become, they demand a special place in my affections for the 90's (and some of the 80's)

Have that - a half and half post!!...

Their 80's and 90's work is mostly untouchable

heads and shoulders above what anyone else was doing, and has done since

Post 2000 is obviously a different story:

choice of album singles has been questionable to awful

crappy videos

the apple iphone debacle

lackluster passionless tours, probably beginning with 360 where the stage overshadowed the band

safe sounding music, boring, The Edge MIA, lyrics that make you question who even wrote them

songs that made the album versus songs that don't (mercy, crystal ballroom come to mind)

and my goodness, how can we forget the following trainwrecks:

stand up comedy
get on your boots
ill go crazy if i dont go crazy tonight

the miracle of joey ramone
song for someone
volcano

american soul
get out of your own way
your the best thing about me

*i feel like i am missing a couple here

but you get the point*
