So did U2 win any awards at the Video Music Awards? Were they even there?

That would be a negative.

Doesn't look like it.

Best Special Effects - Feel Good Inc.//Gorillaz
Best Group Video - Boulevard of Broken Dreams//Green Day
Best Direction - Boulevard of Broken Dreams//Green Day
Best Cinematography - Boulevard of Broken Dreams//Green Day
Breakthrough Video - Feel Good Inc.//Gorillaz

These guys pretty much swept the show... it's like watching a SuperBowl and after the first quarter the favorited team is up 35-10. *snore*
(no, I didn't watch, but I just visited the site to answer your question :-D)

I watched it. Dunno why. I didn't really want to, but I felt like I should. For the most part, it was boring. This was the first time I'd watched the VMAs in like 8 years. They've apparently become a total circus. It was such a joke, by the time it was over I was glad U2 hadn't won anything, they're so above the whole thing. I could also see why they weren't there, because had they been, they would've been facepalming themselves the entire time at the insanity of it all.

Oh god, so true. I can't bear to watch them (or MTV for that matter) anymore.

they're too cool for the VMAs!

i don't even understand that Green Day video. the lead singer talks about walking alone because he's OH SO SAD and then they show him walking down some street with his bandmates.

...or is the walking alone part SYMBOLIC? oooooo.

I hate that song. It is so repetitive. Apparenty think they are The Beatles now instead of The Clash.

Of course not. It's another U2 rip off thing. Because you know in the Stuck In A Moment vid? Except, you know, people don't seem to remember that it makes sense because the band are against Bono. But, you know, kids these days, what can you expect from them.

Greenday can shove it. They are far too political, and not even tasteful about it.

Since it's Monday and I'm feeling grouchy, I'll log in a dissenting opinion. I completely agree that Green Day are political and I, for one, am glad of it. For example, I appreciate the "message" of a song like American Idiot and am glad there are still bands from the US willing to speak on issues that song addresses who are from the US.

Now as for "tasteful", that's a term that is partially defined by society at large and partially defined by the the individual in question. For this individual, I find Green Day more tasteful than some other bands (or certain celebrities I could mention, but then that would get me started on a rant and that wouldn't be pretty) and thus they're fine by me. I've had enough caffeine today to attempt to be graceful and further say I can see it's entirely possible they aren't the picture of tastefulness to you or even society at large, but that's fine by me, too - to each his own.
