They abruptly ended it about 10 minutes ago. Henry Rollins came on with his radio show and bashed U2.

Yes, but they lead us on. They were making all sorts of announcements about "Vertigo", talking about the world premiere and all that crap. Then Henry Rollins came on saying shit about U2, before promptly changing the music.

Nah.

They did say that it would be today. As part of this 24 hour marathon.

We've been cheated. Unless this is some horrible mistake...they are cheats.

Hmm...I sent a not-very hateful mail. Let's see what happens...and is there any hope for the marathon continuing AFTER his show?

I'll say. He really needs to give this entire U2 hate-fest he's been doing for years a rest. There are plenty of artists I don't like, but I don't jump at every opportunity to talk rubbish about them.

Oh, if only I knew how to wire mouths shut...

Hehe. Done.

"Hello. I was listening to the U2 marathon, when the stupid loser [aka Henry Rollins] started bashing them. That didn't piss me me off that much, since he's an idiot with nothing better to do than bash those who are OBVIOUSLY better than him. What did is the fact that YOU lied to us, U2 fans. YOU played with our anxiety. Some of us [LIKE ME] listen to your radio EVERY DAY (at work, while studying, etc). I really believed in you.

You lost listeners, I can assure that. Most U2 fans are really pissed at y'all's crappy radio. Check the interference forum if you have any doubts.

ARE WE EVEN GONNA GET TO LISTEN TO 'VERTIGO'???
Sincerely,
Joha"


Btw, it's not true I listen to them everyday.. I just thought it'd sound more dramatic. haha.

Eh, don't waste your time. The station employees are probably already sitting around laughing at all the hate mail, having a good laugh at having made all us faithful fans listen to their crappy station all day.

though I agree to lead people on is messed up.

I am curious why does Henry Rollins have such a problem with U2? Has he ever said why?

Henry Rollins was on Howard Stern about 2 years ago and he hates many, many bands out there. U2 was just one of many. I wouldn't let Henry Rollins bug ya about his comments. The station hired Steve Jones from the Pistols, Henry Rollins and the like to make some waves...ya know. Don't fall into the trap. Later :-)

Henry Rollins is an asshat. He's ruined the legacy of Black Flag for me, and that sucks.

Ugh, Rollins. I don't live in L.A., so I didn't even listen to the marathon. I have problems with a ClearChannel station claiming to be indie.

Anyway... Rollins is an asshat, like I said.

I'm so pissed off at them for this. When I heard that Henry Rollins' show would be on I knew he would bash them. And then they kept playing a loop of pre programmed songs. And I hated the fact that they kept saying they would world premier the new song. GAH!! Liars!!
