Hello Hello!!

I'm currently feelin: Pretty Lovely
I'm currently hearin: Wire

It looks like everyone here shares my love for U2 as well. Good, because I'm sick of chatting with people who don't like them.

I have listened to them since I was in my mother's womb. I was born to love them, I guess. Their music makes me beyond happy, and comforts me through everything. Especially The Unforgettable Fire, I cannot describe it, but there is some great feeling I get from it. Maybe someone out there understands?

I can't stand talking to people who don't realize, or people who refuse to realize, how great U2 are. Like, there's no doubts in my mind that they are the greatest band in the world. Trite as that may sound, there's no other way to put it.

So yeah, I'm horrible...I get incredibly angry if someone insults my band. Even bad album reviews really stir me up. :p

U2 insults and bad album reviews don't get me nearly as annoyed as people who claim to have never heard of U2. I grew up with them being Something You Have To Know About. If you haven't heard of them ... there's no excuse. You might as well haven't heard of breathing.

I remember way back when I read an album review for the unforgettable fire by kurt loder. He totally trashed it, I've never looked at him the same...

anyone who "doesn't like" U2 clearly hasn't heard enough U2. Even if you dont have a full appreciation for their greatness, they've covered so much ground over the years that you HAVE to like something.

I've always found that most folk who don't like U2 don't like them because they read it somewhere that they're not cool or whatever. Or they don't like them not because of the music but they don't like Bono's politics! Up to them I suppose! We're not the ones missing out are we?

yeah totally, they dont want to sound cliche and it's uncool to be so mainstream. actually the other thing I hate is people who are like "oh i know i looooove U2....'with or without you' is such a good song" like they're this thing of the past and have no depth past the big singles.


oh and tisri, i think most of us know how you feel. I was also raised on U2...every CD is kind of a soundtrack from a different period of my life. I remember it being a family event when Zooropa was released and I was old enough to make the trip with dad to go get a copy of it. My dad got my brother and me hooked for life.


one more confession i must make...my boyfriend thinks it's the most ridiculous thing in the world, that the only way you can really make me cry is to make me explain why U2 is the best band in the world. I tear up every time. He doesn't get it.

I remember someone once saying that if you took away the instrument element from most U2 songs, then they would make excellent poems....
U2 are still one of the (if not THE) best bands in the world. And best of all, their aren't manufactured like 90% of today's rubbish!

Excuse me, I like maybe...two or three U2 songs. I hate the rest. Does that make me pathetic or something else?

Good band, yes, just not to my liking. You people have to accept that other people might hate U2. You can't get personal about it.

Oh, and reviews mean jack.

That's the problem... many people, like yourself, just don't seem to understand how much U2's music means to us. And it's frustrating when we can't convey it in words, and when we can't share the joy with everyone we meet.

Good for you, you missed my point.

I'm saying you can't get upset when someone insults U2. They're just a band people, that's all it boils down to.

And you seem to have missed mine. The point is they're MORE than just a band to some people. By the way I'm not trying to start an argument or anything, I'm just saying there's a two-way communication barrier when it comes to this.

Music means more to some people than others, my dear. :)
