Does the rest of your family like U2 + which of the smileys is your favorite?

Well, my brother was the first to be interested in U2, first time I ever heard U2 was on his stereo (I think he's taken a U2 break now, he wasn't interested in hearing any of the bootlegs I got). My second brother is more into dance & techno but he has a burned CD with New Year's day on it!
My parents - well, they know of them - but I don't think they could actually name a song. We were watching "Tribute to heroes" and Dad goes "Who's this?" and I go "It's U2", and he says "Don't know them" (to be far, he mostly listens to classical music), and then my Mum goes "You don't? They are very famous all over the world!" (which I think is the first and only time my Mum actually defended U2 to other people), which was , but followed by "He has a weak voice" Dad comment (again, keep in mind those opera singers are his reference) and a "Are they better known for their playing than singing?" Mum comment (also, she likes classical music) which i replied to with "No, both for singing and playing", but Dad made up for it by saying "he has a beautiful voice though".
Also they like the Beatles and like big band singers and Elvis, I think they might stuff like Stuck or Wild honey or Sweetest thing.

My dad and sis were hauled along to Slane with me b/c

A. my dad cud drive me there and back and bought me stuff

B. my sis got me my tix

But they arent really fans- they dont hate them they r indifferent but my mum and dad both have u2 songs on their winmx lists

My bro always asks my mum to put the u2 tape on in the car on the way to skool every day and my sis shouts at him and says "your just trying to look cool infront of laura" and then they have a fight

So yeh my bro might like them i dunno

I like too

my mom respects them, my father likes them, thinks they're ok, he's in utah, so i dont daughter is tolerant of them now, i think she's getting burnt out, and she's only 6. scares me what she likes now, all this nsync or backstreet boys, aaron carter shit...but hey, she's 6 years old. i'd rather she listen to that than whatever's on the radio at the moment.

my favorite smilie is
oh hell, i like them all

I'm the only one in my entire (and very large) family who is a U2 fan. My parents and my older sister don't like rock music at all, and my older brothers are almost exclusively classic rock fans - they like hardly anything that came out after 1980. And my younger sister isn't a fan either. Sometimes I wish I wasn't the only one if the family who liked U2, but in a weird way it's kind of nice. I'll always be grateful to my brothers for exposing me to artists like Beatles and Eric Clapton at a young age, but U2 is something I discovered on my own so I feel more like their music speaks to me in a more personal way.

As for smilies, I can't choose a favorite because there are so many cool ones.

My family likes U2. My dad and brother just know their hits, but my mom listens to ATYCLB a lot. I'm going to try to get her into their older albums too. A brother also tries to play U2 songs on the guitar, but most of the time they end up sounding pretty bad.

My favorite smilies are : and

my Mum really likes U2- it was listening to her vinyl copy of Rattle that started of my U2 obsession. My dad knows who they are, but he mainly likes blues music, although he appreciates Bonos lyrics..

and my fave smiley is

My parents like U2, and my sis even admits to liking them now.

My fave smilies are and ...but I'm biased because those are the two that I found.

I also enjoy though!

it was my older brother and sister who introduced me to U2 when I was kid. I took them to the Elevation concert in Nov here in Atlanta. it was my Christmas gift to them. My mother likes U2 and my younger brother likes them as well. My dad on the other hand, he does not understand the music at is too loud for him..he is old fashion and likes his jazz music.

here are my fav smilies:

My mom really likes them, just gets a bit burned out when I listen to them for days on end (or, used to, as in all of last year!). I even made her a U2 mix last year, and when I made her a mix cd this summer she requested "Walk On", "SBS", and "WOWY".

My fave smilies have to be orgasm smiley and Miss Flirty.

i almost typed 'orgasm' when i typed out the smiles, lmfao

My parents aren't really into U2. My dad's into the Beatles and Pink Floyd and Eric Clapton and stuff like that, and i'm not really sure what my mom listens to. I think she likes the Bee Gees and the Beatles too.

My mom likes U2 but she really LOVES the songs in which she can "understand what Bono is saying", as she puts it.

And her favorite U2er is Edge. She says, "He's just so cute!!!"

Crazy moms.

Oh and this is my favorite smiley
