What a great night for the boys, I'm so happy for them.
Sadly, many people is not happy and the opinions all over the web are not so good, the big part of the people is calling the Grammy's "the U2 awards" and a big joke.

I think this is a good sign for U2 fans. I think this cements the fact that U2 are on top of the mainstream, so now they can use that power to fuck up the mainstream once again.

Through out U2's career, they have been bashed by many other people because of their massive popularity and success. When your as big and successful as U2 has been, the top band in the world for 19 years now, your naturally a target for many people.

I can't believe U2 won 5 Grammy's tonight!!! The most shocking was Album Of The Year!!!! This proves that they will be around for a long time still. Very disrespectfull for cutting the speeches short Mr. Grammy President. Thank You U2 and congratulations!!!

I don't know. I'm surprised it won all those awards (then again I didn't even know the grammy's were on tonight..much less the competition they were up against.) I mean I love U2 and all (else I wouldn't be here), but I feel this is one of their weaker albums and I think that while Vertigo can be a fun song..it's nothing spectacular. Neither is COBL or Sometimes (especially "Sometimes" which I just view as another "Stuck in a moment.."). I'm also really surprised they got album of the year.

Don't get me wrong. I love mah boys and I'm glad they're getting all this EXTRA exposure. It's just that I didn't think that the album or any song off of it (except "Love and Peace") are really Grammy worthy. Nonetheless...good job guys!

Most people won't like them, but here are my thoughts on the Grammy's as they relate to U2:

1) Worst performance of One ever. Just awful. And it had nothing to do with Mary J. Blige.
2) Bono's incoherent rants are getting longer and making less sense. When he's on, he's on, but when he's off...
3) HTDAAB is not a great album but the competition was weak, so why not give it to them?
4) I am happy they won, but I fear the inevitable backlash.

1) one was decent, MJB made it great
2) i think its just a bit of stage fright, he said the same things that he always says (sometimes about his father, etc), most of it made sense to me
3) well HTDAAB was the best album of 2005, so yeah, give it to them
4) on another forum i frequent, they were really giving it to u2, calling them sellouts and all, but i think they were just jealous

1. I wanted a full performance of Vertigo, but atleast to hear Vertigo was good. One was unexpected

2. Bono's speeches didn't make much sense, but good to hear him speak. They [the band] didn't really have much to say.

3. It was great to see them win all their awards, just goes to show that U2 is the biggest band in the world.

4. Bomb is a great album, really strong songs. Almost better material than ATYCLB.

5. Bono's hair was longer and it looked awesome!

Good job U2, thanks for the great tour! You deserve your awards, and haters don't be jealous!

Though Bono, I think you should let Larry speak more.

1. Vertigo rocked, Bono sounded great

2. One sucked because Mary J. Blige ruined it. How is Bono supposed to sing when that crazy woman is screaming and waving her fist in every which direction??

3. Bomb deserved every award it got, it is a great album by far the best nominated.

4. Paul Mccartney rocked

5. Ellen Degenerous was hilarious w/ "this next performer needs no introduction"
