He then said "Did that ever happen to you, Kanye?"

I'm afraid so. This is the new direction Lanios and Eno are pushing the band.

This year's show is putting me to sleep, as usual. I think I hate too many people to truly enjoy this show. Fergie that skank again?! Corporate whores like Foo Fighters beating Bruce and Wilco? Sure, we'll do your cell phone promo guest amateur musician outside stage thing. What do we get out of it? Oh, okay. And John Paul Jones will be there to further tarnish his reputation by orchestrating some random bullshit that will be drowned out by our unoriginal RAWK?

Jason Bateman's irreverent announcing was more punk rock than their performance. What a fucking joke.

Damn, So I guess the trip-hop meets house music idea is off the table.

I'm really surprised you like a band as corporate whorish as U2. lol

I could see it coming after that Temple Bar mix of Vertigo. It was obvious country would be the direction they were taking.

Honestly, there is nothing more annoying than a band who lets people know how non-mainstream they are by dragging around saying "We're artists. We won't sell out for corporations. We'll stay here with our 12 fans and change the world with our music."

U2, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, The Beatles The Rolling Stones, The Who, Radiohead, REM, Nirvana, and many other artists/bands....have all had major mainstream success and worked with corporations in one way or another without selling out. That's why they're legends. They could be popular and still maintain their integrity.
