U2 sucks!
Edited on Wed Mar-23-05 05:39 PM by CanuckAmok
"oh, look at me, I'm Bono Vox! I take controversial stands on complex issues like war and poverty (I'm against both), and I don't care how many people I alienate in the process! Kneel before my mighty soundbites!!"


"Hey, I'm The Edge! I perfected the sustained, over-processed, one-note guitar solo, and inspired a generation of banal axemen to do the same! I'm too cool to use my last name, or even my first name! My friends call me "Edge". Crazy, huh?! You can't stop me from calling myself Edge...nobody can!!"


"Hey we're the other guys in U2! We don't really have much to say, because we're basically pretty bland. Most people don't even know our names. Maybe we should have used catchy monosyllabic stage names; that might have helped. Ultimately, however, it doesn't matter because we can still nail supermodels and wear the stupidest hats we can find without fear of ridicule, because we're billionaires!"


on edit: "Bono Vox" means great voice! Did you know that?
Signed,
Bono Vox.

2. Link, please?
I do NOT believe Bono said that.


(PS: try a Radiohead Sucks thread and see how long until someone literally wishes for your death...try it, it's fun!)

4. They've been calling each other that for like, 30 years....
It started when they were young teenagers making up nicknames for themselves. A dumb kid thing that stuck...my dad still calls a cousin of his Boots. Whatever.

But Bono had such a *bad* voice that they named him Bono Vox from the name of a hearing aid store.

Wow, I know a lot of U2 trivia. Stop me before I get to the story about Bono and the bee.

10. I'll have to disagree with you on this.
They have some great tunes.

11. I never understood
Why U2 seems to be such a polarizing band. People seem to either loathe them or think they're the greatest band of all time. I've never really been a huge fan myself, but I really don't have anything against them (except for the fact that I do wish Bono would just shut up and make music sometimes).

Personally, I kind of like The Edge's guitar style. I've always loved that whole John Fogerty/Neil Young "less is more" school of guitar playing, but that's just my opinion.

Anyway, U2 is just an OK band in my book.
