Okay, whatever. U2 beat DM at their own game in the 90's, and aside from that have worked in about 10 other styles that DM couldn't ever hope to approach.

But I guess that's to be expected on a fan forum.
I know, I am trying not to get pissed off and get myself banned LOL.

I'm a big fan of both as well. But the guy on the DM forum said "I am personally sick of U2's music and their music pales in comparison with DM" and "I just get annoyed that a band such as U2 is regarded as being a more accomplished band than Depeche when Depeche has been a lot more consistent and creative throughout their career".

Those statements are just laughable to me. The fact is that after a decade of some pretty diverse soudns, U2 went into some previously uncharted territory in the 90's and proved they could make more electronic-based music as well as anyone, including Depeche Mode. Then they moved on.

I guess when your personal obsession is with a lesser band, you have to make bitter, insane comparisons to rationalize your feelings.

Sicy, nice political response over there. I don't know how much more you can say, but I would certainly take issue with the notion that U2 has been less creative.

I cant respond to that thread anymore, I'm just getting pissed off. It's completely pointless. The last few responses made me want to throw something at my computer.

I'm all for having your own opinion on music and what not, but I just had another look at that thread and the last couple posters are fucking idiots (although that southpark episode WAS funny)

Just seems that a lot of people have this sheer hatred towards U2. People go OUT OF their way to mention their hate for U2. A girl once told me her likes and dislikes, and when we reached her dislikes, the third thing on her list was the fact that she HATES U2.

As for what kind of DM stuff I have? I have a DM 101 shirt, and a Playing the Angel shirt. I wasn't lucky enough to be alive or be old enough to goto any cool DM concerts.

U2 and Depeche Mode are both great, but I like U2 better. I think everyone has a right to an opinion, though.

One of my friends loves Depeche Mode and hates U2. I frankly don't care, he has a right to dislike whatever he wants.

I did have 3rd row for that AMAZING Devotional Tour, so I guess I can't complain.
You're lucky to have gone to high school in such era as that. When I went to high school it was all rap and crap and hip hop and stuff. People liking good bands were few and far between.

When I went to high school, Britney Spears was the height of cool. Thank god I discovered U2 as a teenager.

Ok, I caved and spent waaaaay more money than I wanted to, but on Sunday I got a good seat for the Monday, August 24th, Hollywood Bowl show.

I think this will be the 6th or 7th time I've seen them live. They always put on a good show.
