I'm currently feelin: bored bored

Hey I'm Maia, 17 from England. U2 are pretty much my first musical memory from when I was little, and although my musical taste has since become slighlty more um... diverse, I still have a lot of love for what I grew up with. I'm planning on getting a U2 tattoo next year, maybe with some lyrics as well [probably from the Pop album, that being my favorite].
I'd love to see them live one day. That'd be a dream come true. Is there a pretty big age range here? And how did you all start listening to them?

Well hello there Daniel :) There was an 18-and-unders kinda U2 community, but it seemed kinda empty. This one seems more fun.

I'm 18 too, I think generally U2 do appeal to lots of different ages, which is great. I only got into them a couple of years ago on hearing the newer stuff.
The tattoo sounds cool!

Welcome! I'm an oldtimer, my name is Dawn, and I'm 38 (old lady). I've been into U2 since way back when the "War" album came out. I'm waiting anxiously for the new album!

Pop is your favorite album? Rock on. :)

I'm 18, and have been listening to U2 since I was about 7 or 8, but only started buying all the albums in 2001. Luckily we had The Joshua Tree, Zooropa, and Rattle & Hum on cassette already.

Hi, I'm getting on a bit, at 28. Liked U2 since I 'borrowed' my sisters copy of the Joshua Tree, would have been '89, and haven't been able to get enough of them since. My fav albums are Boy and Joshua Tree.

Welcome, welcome. Always great to have new fans on board. :)

I'm 21 and a U2 fan since the age of about 8. However, I learned of them at the age of about 3 or 4 from Reading Rainbow of all things, so they are one of my first memories as well (along with the Beatles and Stevie Wonder, I guess). I've thought about getting a U2 tattoo many times before, but just couldn't decide on one thing (I have on tattoo already).

Hi there! My name's Joha, I'm 14 (youngster...) and I'm writing from Texas. :)
I've been listening to U2 since I was very young but I realized who they were when I was 9, while watching the 'Sweetest Thing' video with my mom. :D Then I became a fan -forever.
I haven't seen them live yet, but I will this coming tour! It's my goal, hehe.

The idea of having a U2 tattoo sounds awesome! I want one myself, maybe I'll get the austronaut boy on the cover of Zooropa one day...

My fave albums are Achtung Baby! and All That You Can't Leave Behind... followed by Boy and War. (can't decide for one best album, lol)

Welcome! Seems like you've been getting a lot of responses from fellow teens (I'm 18), but there's a pretty wide age range here...easily 25, 30 years! Just goes to show how amazing U2 is. :D

The radio was my great gateway drug to U2 when ATYCLB came out, and I've been a complete addict for about a year and a half, I'd say. Your tattoo sounds absolutely keen! Do you know which image/lyrics you'd like?

I must the the token "old guy" here, age 34. Started listening to them in '85 when I borrowed The Unforgettable Fire from a friend and they've been my favorite band since.

Seeing them live is worth every bit you pay for. I've seen them live 7 times and it's not nearly enough. :)

Welcome. I'm Jess, I'm 22, have been into them for the past ten years :)
I, too, love Pop. It's not my favorite album, but I love it to pieces!

You must not miss them on the next tour. A U2 concert is one of the greatest things anybody can experience. I've seen them three times :)

Welcome! Well, it's already been established there's a major age range here, and personally, I'm seventeen. I grew up on U2 and life without them is ... too unbearable to think about. Pop's one awesome album, I have to agree with you there, though I personally am absolutely nuts about eighties U2.
