Yeah, making anti Rollins remarks in return prolly wasn't the best idea.

*stops stating obvious*

Offer a truce?

Ok it was more like this:

U2 music is stupid. I hate U2. Blah blah.

I say:

Have you ever actually listened to U2 or do you just not like their music because Rollins doesn't like them?

Secondly, I don't understand a guy that bashes on who I personally regard as a modern day Saint. Bono doesn't just make millions and buy clothes and cars with it, he actually is a prominent political figure. He does God's work, in my opinion, and he seems to be trying to single handidly save a whole continent from destruction.

... it sounds to me, Mr. Rollins is jealous.

But to each their own.

Now the actual friend is just like, can you show me where Rollins actually attacks what Bono does? And I said I can't remember the link to the site that he did an interview and he says he thinks Bono does it all for media coverage..blah blah.

We're having an adult discussion. The people on his friends list are like, "Rollins is God. You must bow down. Don't deny he owns you"

blah blah.

Anyways.. I made the post to this community as kinda like, Ha ha ha funny, I guess it translated as I was actually really upset it about.

Oh well, I'm done justifying.

I remember seeing that Rollins blurb somewhere. Not sure if this was the original article I read, but here. Or here.

I'm also fairly certain there's a Rollins spoke-word bit called "I Hate U2," but darned if I can find it.

Anyway, my advice is to take the high ground, but if you're looking for stuff to back up your argument, there you go.

Thanks for the links! I was trying to find those.

.. I'm not making attacks. In fact I'm ignoring his friends post. Just responding to his.

OH.

That's not nearly so bad then. Sounds like regular life on my LJ.

You can download Rollins' I Hate U2 speech from Kazaa. And there are plenty of place where he's bashed them. It's a bit of a hobby for him, I think.

Watch me get drawn and quartered....

I like Henry Rollins. I think he's incredibly intelligent and he has a lot of really good things to say. I saw him on tour recently and he was 1) hilarious and 2) thought-provoking.

I like U2. I think they're all incredibly intelligent and they have a lot of really good things to say. I saw them twice on their last tour and they were 1) fantastic and 2) mind-blowing.

Just because you like one doesn't mean you can't like the other.

Oh, I'm not bashing Rollins. I have not listened to his music.

But I do not like his political views at all. But I can't say I dislike him as a person.

I don't like a lot of his fans though, at least the ones I've encountered: "Huh huh Rollins is God.. huh huh.. BEER... huh huh down with PIGS.. huh huh BEER huh huh.. U2 sucks.. huh huh"

But, that's not everyone mind you.

Second person to echo "Amen" (third to say it :P)

I personally LIKE Henry Rollins. I LOVE U2. I can actually listen to BOTH on the SAME winamp/real player playlist, and NOT have any weird controversial feelings going on inside me. I can also listen to Bob Marley and Jars Of Clay and Tweaker and Pink Floyd and Zero Seven and my friend Matthew Presidente (www.matthewpresidente.com) and a bunch of other mish-mashed music all at once. I am ecclectic in my tastes, and I personally think that being open to a bunch of things is miles better than being obsessed with ONE THING ONLY and never deviating from it and shunning others for their tastes.

So enjoy what you enjoy coz it makes you happy - and if someone has a problem with it, let them have their problem - they're not gonna change their mind if they're being bitchy about you having YOUR own point of view.
