George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise!!

A few years back Bono was on the hot 100 on VH1. He was # 17 I think!! Bravo. And he was on another list --either E or VH1 - the sexiest 25 and he was # 15. Even on those, he wasn't high enough on the list. Bono is amazingly sexy and hot! People are blind!

Spin magazine (this months--the "20 years of photos" one) voted U2 as the #1 band that "most needs to retire." I swear, that magazine has had it out for the band for years...

Selling out just about every show on the 1st leg in 20 minutes. Yeah, need to retire my a**.

No idea if it was readers' votes or the editorial staff. It was just a text box on one page that listed the top bands that need to retire (aerosmith was #2, I think).

i think with the commercial success of HTDAAB and the tour, (and Bono's media presence) the band gets targeted. to Spin magazine

Spin Magazine sucks anyway, I am sure it wasn't a reader vote. If it was you know who voted. These people who love all these "new" bands who are around for like 5 minutes and suck while they are here and think they are King Turd on Crap Mountain because every 12 year old in the world buys thier album. Well you know what bite me bite me bite me bite me you suck spin magazine

sorry! I feel better...............................

I think SPIN magazine might have said the same thing after "POP" came out.

Mmhm. I wish he'd been higher, too, but hey, at least he was recognized, so that's something, right?

And yeah, anyone who thinks U2 needs to retire would be dead wrong...they're still relevant, their last album's doing quite well, as pointed out, they're going to be drawing big crowds as usual this tour...doesn't sound like the criteria of a band that needs to retire to me.

Besides, they can't retire yet-I have to see them in concert first!

6. Johnny Depp
7. Tom Cruise
8. Kevin Spacey (I *think* he's in his 40s...)
9. Liam Neeson (or is he in his 50s? @@)
10. Russel Crowe (for LivLuvandBootlegMusic )

Better?
No! There needs to be a Russell sandwich between Bono and Edge.

I concur man....my friend, an avid u2- hater (her usual comment...(EW WHY DO YOU LIKE THOSE UGLY OLD GUYZZZ) get's spin...she gave me the U2 edition thank god, but the one that said they needed to retire, she rubbed in my face.

Well, that's nice . My friends weren't exactly U2 fans (mainly 'cause they just never really heard much of their stuff to say either way)...but even if they weren't fans because they didn't like them, they'd never have done that to me.
