B-sides

The Void (music letters page on Teletext) has been having a debate about bands who are good or bad at B-sides, and today someone's written in saying "Surprisingly for a great band, U2 have released very few good B-sides." I can't believe anyone could say that, personally... I know they've been rubbish at B-sides for the last few years (hardly anything except poor quality remixes and live versions), but they had dozens of fantastic B-sides in the '80s and '90s. Stuff that way outclasses most bands' A-sides. I can only guess that this guy doesn't actually own much of U2's back catalogue!
