Literally the only song by U2 I like is, of course, Beautiful Day, but I'm gonna echo Jon when I say that I can't stand the band and their egos. Truly, Bono's ego could power the planet for 300 years if science developed a way to tap into it's own power. Bono is one of the most self-centered, impossible to like, preachy asshats that I have ever had the displeasure of learning about. The rest of the band isn't that far behind either. They can put on a bloody good show but.......that's it.
I think the only person that can top Bono in jackassiness is the utmost king of arrogance himself, John Lennon. He's a ****, to be blunt. A hypocrite, a liar, a child beater, and truly not that good of an artist anyway. I've always maintained a sort of respect for The Beatles because they revolutionised the industry and what not, but otherwise, I cannot stand their music. It's just....terrible, bye.
