I know on the classic rock spectrum they rank a bit low. I mean they do rank on thier, but overshadowed by floyd,stones,billy joel, elton john, led zep, the who ,eagles, etc. I have called u2 a miniture classic rock or classic rock jr. lol. casue they have lengh enough ( i mean the others have longer,but 26 years is 26 years, u stop counting after a while,once ur old ur old. stones have been "officaly" old since 1989 )and a number of hits, and this and that but do not dominate like the bands above. Their not nothing either. They do have a place on classic rock, just not as big as others. And they won;t penatrate it anytime soon either.

I think when all is said and done U2 will rank very highly in the end. To be so consistent all these years whilst also making 2 of the greatest albums of all time is pretty impressive. An even more impressive fact i believe is that after a quarter of a century they are yet to make a bad album. Most great bands throughout their careers make at least one poor album but imo U2 haven't done that yet and it's one of the reasons why they are still here today. I think their consistancy is remarkable..

I think they'll end up right behind Coldplay.

Love them or hate them, it's not debatable.

They invented their own sound.
Yeah but I hate them.

Yeah, they had their cheesy moments. But that was mainly towards the end of their career. Some of the early stuff they did in the 70s was amazing.

I don't think U2 will be widely thought of as #1 down the road.

The main reason for this is because The Beattles had so many #1 hits on the charts. Many of U2 singles barely crack the top 25 with few ever getting down to single digits.

50 years from now, when society looks back, it will be The Beattles as #1 w/ The Stones, The Who, and probably Zeppelin (in any order).

What prevents many modern day bands from cracking the top 5 or 10 will be longevity. Bands tend to break up after a handful of records. There are a few modern bands who have remained in tact and still put out music, but haven't necessarily remained in the spot light such as REM and Pearl Jam. Yes, many of us are big fans of REM & PJ but universally speaking, aren't in the public's eye (or ear for that matter).

'Bit cheesy' is probably understatement of the year. A well known motto of Queen was "What's worth doing is worth over-doing". Getting off-topic now...

U2 is my number one favourite band. Some others come close, but not that close.

You're just pissed Matchbox Twenty hasn't been named on anyone's list, yet. Put your hurt feelings aside and give us some solid input. It's ok, you can put Matchbox number 1. Nobody will make fun of you. Remember, I've always got your back, buddy!!!

How can this be a legitimate question? Why don't you ask those folks at that site why Axl followed U2 around like a sick puppy dog on the Zoo TV tour?

I'll tell you why. It's because he knew he was beat. AB changed his world and he bacame an obsessive follower of U2 because he so badly wanted to compete with them and eventually beat them.

AB turned Axl into a nut because he set out to make Chinese Democracy as his AB oneupsmanship. Now, here we are 15 yrs later and he still hasn't delivered due to the phychosis AB helped bring out of him.

Axl Rose is to U2 what Brian Wilson is to the Beatles. Nutballs who were partially driven over the edge by trying to compete with the best of their generation.
