Congratulations U2!

What do they have left to achieve? An Oscar for a movie song (you know what I mean) and what? Are there any mountains left to climb?

Absolutely brilliant.

AP Entertainment Writer


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Grammy night belonged to U2, but Bono and the boys recalled that hasn't always been the case.

"We've been here and lost on some of our most important albums. We've been at the other end of this, too," the U2 frontman said after the group walked away with five awards Wednesday, including the coveted album of the year trophy for "How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb."

Bono noted the group was particularly disappointed that its 1991 album, "Achtung Baby," didn't fare better. Drummer Larry Mullen said reaction to 1997's "Pop" was another disappointment.

"After the 'Pop' record, things like this actually mean something," Mullen said.

With 20 Grammys and counting, guitarist The Edge was asked if the awards certify the group as the greatest band in the world.

"I think we are tonight," he replied.

(without reading the other replies)

How is it possible to be nominated (and win) for the same album twice?

U2 already won 3 awards for HTDAAB last year, so how can they win again THIS year? I don't understand.

Isn't that like someone winning an Oscar year after year for the same movie?

The awards won last year were for the Vertigo single. It was released in time to qualify for those Grammy's. HTDAAB was not, and instead qualified for these Grammy's.

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."
