I think MJ fans want/wanted to 'mother' him.

ya know?


I remember this documentary, showed a late 80s shot, this girl all excited about him 'looking at her and saying hello, and she cannot believe it' before jumping up and down squealing to the point one would go deaf in the ear.

Dead Heads(or insert any jam band type) smell.
Radiohead fans have no sense of humor.
Metallica fans still look like it's 1988.
Clay Aiken fans are all approaching menopause.
Ashley Simpson fans are all deaf.

U2 shows to them are like a church service. They will see more than one or two shows a tour. This is JMHO.
QFT!!!

It's Ashlee with two e's. Ashlee.

And that actually reminds me of a stereotype...U2 fans can't spell.

Maybe if she had talent I'd take the time to learn how to spell her name.

Wow. This truly defines being a fan of the band for you? Honest to blog?

So, to summarize, being a U2 fan means:

- Acting like the "older" "real and true die hard U2 fans."
- Agreeing with everything Bono and the band promotes and supporting them.
- Being in tune with politics and world events.
- Knowing all of U2's lyrics.
- Never arguing about U2's meanings or intentions.
- Meet people at shows.
- Being caring, compassionate, intelligent, well read, and politically outspoken.
- Viewing shows as if they are like a church service.
- Seeing multiple shows on a tour.

I for one am not a U2 fan, it turns out. That's a shame. Should I leave Interference?

One third of interference doesn't even like U2 anymore, one third posts in EYKIW obsessively, and the other third are just here for the beach clips.

But they're only U2 fans if they agree with what Bono says and see multiple shows each tour. More than one or two.

Essentially, U2 caters to the upper-middle class.

I would have said, you know, that a real U2 fan enjoys U2's music. How dare I forget being politically outspoken and knowing every U2 lyric, while never arguing about anything the band means.
