billhelm:
Most underrated U2 song: Miami. A lot of people hated this song but there was always something I liked about it. It was incredible song live during the popmart tour as well.

Most overrated U2 song: With or Without you. Still one of my favorites but... still overrated.

Most underrated U2 album: Rattle&Hum or Zooropa
The whole R&H project, while widely criticized as too over the top and excessive at the time, and pandered by many, is a great album and film. Yes some of the blues/Memphis stuff is deserving of some slander but Desire and All I want Is you are two of their greatest songs. Zooropa is a classic but many don't like this one very much either.

Most overrated U2 album: The Joshua Tree. It's one of my favorities but I don't think it's anywhere near their best. This has always been the crowd favorite.

First U2 song you ever heard: Sunday Bloody Sunday when I was very young on MTV. I remember watching the video for this from Red Rocks when I was quite young.
First U2 song you heard and loved: Streets. I was old enough then to understand what this band had in them.
All-time favourite U2 song: Stay(Faraway so Close) although several others are right there too.
All-time favourite U2 album: Tie between Achtung Baby and Zooropa. I was so engrossed in U2 at this point in my life. Was also the first tour that I ever saw.

First U2 album you owned: The Joshua Tree

U2 albums you haven't got (yet): Got them all and countless boots of shows.

Favourite U2 era: ZooTV. Achtung Baby and Zooropa. The best.

Least favourite U2 era: I don't think I have one. I liked Pop a great deal and thought it was one of their best tours. But then again, I also felt that way for every tour I've seen.

Nice. I was engrossed with U2 during this same era... I remember months before Zooropa came out thinking about "at this very moment, U2 are creating some precious songs... songs which currently don't exist... songs which will become my favourites... they're creating those songs RIGHT now".

And then Zooropa came out. I was ecstatic... I became a die hard U2 fan in March of 1993. Then on July 6, 1993 Zooropa was released. Practically... nine years to the day. Nine years!!?!?! ARGH!

Time flies!
