Grammys Elevate U2 for 2002

This is one moment U2 won't want to get out of.

Despite going three-for-three last year, the Irish rock supergroup was hardly left behind by the 44th Annual Grammy Awards Friday, scoring a field-best eight nominations, including Album of the Year for its acclaimed return to pop simplicity, All That You Can't Leave Behind. Bono and company also picked up nods for Record of the Year and Song of the Year (songwriting award) for their uplifting tracks "Walk On" and "Stuck In a Moment You Can't Get Out Of," respectively.

....

Meanwhile, U2's nomination domination seemed like a no-brainer: After all, the supergroup swept its categories at last year's ceremony, with its "Beautiful Day" single winning Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Rock Performance by a Duo or Group. Because U2's album was released after the September 30, 2000, deadline, the disc itself wasn't eligible for Grammy gold until this year.
Anyone else find it a bit ironic how they are now everybody's darling when about a year ago they were nobody's buddy? lol.

Oh well, it's nice to see them get the attention they deserve.

HA! I was thinking the same thing! I almost feel like I did something good. Well, I guess I did by becoming a U2 fan.

Look what you did, you little JERK!

Kevin! You're such a disease!

Actually yeah, that's why it's so cool! Because they were our darlings even when not recognized by the media or the public or whatever. You kinda wanna go See, I TOLD you they were great! to all the reviewers and writers and everyone on the street. lol.

p.s. *has been going around the office today with a silly grin on face and telling the occasional person "Guess whose band just got nominated for 8 Grammy Awards?"*

The fun part is cutting out all the little newsprint pictures to tape on my folders I use for grad school. Yes, like a seventh-grader.
