Most annoying U2 thing?

To me at times, i find Bono can spoil songs live by straying fro how the song was done. Am all for changing words here and there but sometimes (for me) when he changes how he sings a bit, it can be detrimental to the song.

Bono , lol.

I like him but it annoys me when i see him in the paper due to his politics than his music.

The band publicly saying that they don't like wonderful stuff* and that they regard boring, cheesy material+ as the best in their catalogue.

* = POP
+ = One, HTDAAB

Great songs destroyed on the album by horrible mixing.



Only to become sweet live songs or single versions.

(I don't get why they don't do a Radiohead-esque tour before they put the album together, just to work out songs.)

When they fancy themselves as disco artists instead of messianic rock stars.

Bonos recent lyrics are SO annoying. When he applies himself, he writes great lyrics. Lately, its as though hes just phoning them in. (freedom has a scent - like the top of a newborn babys head) ???!!

That's a bad example. That lyric is actually one he thought about - in interviews he used to say he liked the line very much.

"Hello, hello, I'm at a place called Vertigo" <- there's your too-easy lyric.

1. Long wait between albums.
2. Sometimes Bono`s politics get in the way of the music, but I have a high tolerance level for it.
3. The fans that basically say that everything U2 have done since POP is horrible.
