I was reading through an earlier thread here and I wanted to ask, what kind of music fan are you? Are you simply a U2 fan, wearing blinders, not able to listen to or accept any other type of music saying everything else sucks because our band is "like, good and stuff"? I know we all have our favs and our very non-favs. I guess I'd be interested in knowing what kinds of music U2 fans listen to, esp. the fans who are so biased and harsh. My favs are punk, industrial, rock, hip hop... but I like anything from opera to pop to heavy metal. My other very fav bands are The Offspring, NIN, Coldplay, Marilyn Manson, Hole, Greenday, Garbage and my other hero John Lennon.
I guess I am happy that I can turn on the radio and love more of the music than dislike it.
But, that is just me.
