no idea at all I’m afraid.

I only remember that Beautiful Day song

They’re fucking excellent

The early 90s stuff was great

The joke about Bono clapping his hands is good.

Also War is a great album I guess.

Was thinking recently about how I couldn’t in good faith construct a list of my favourite guitarists of all time without putting The Edge in. Pillock though he is.

Up until The Joshua Tree, yes. After that, not so much (although Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me is a total tune)

Achtung Baby is excellent, zooropa is very good and Pop has a couple of excellent tunes.

All shite after that.

some good tunes I reckon. kind of. I mean, even the good ones are a bit shit, if you think about it, but I definitely have a soft spot for some of them.

Red Hill Mining Town, Your Blue Room… umm… Stay, Miss Sarajevo, The Fly, Hold Me Kill Me etc. other obvious singles, too.

although I like some tunes less than I used to. Where The Streets Have No Name was one of my absolute favourite tunes when I was… fifteen. not so much now.

edit: nothing to see here.

Was never a big fan of theirs, was too young for the U2 mania that hit Ireland when I grew up and with Bono being Bono I always just avoided them.
So, I went and made a playlist of U2 songs I liked because of this and was surprised how much of it I liked.

For anyone interested.

Some good songs, some shit songs.
Bono, Edge, overall smugness, showiness and tax dodging spoil it.

Angel of Harlem is a banger

Can’t decide between Promenade and So Cruel as my favourite
