Someone needs to teach them a lesson

I was on internet last night, trying to find out some news for vertigo tour and i went on u2.com. After finding no news, i started looking around.
THE SITE IS SO AWESOMELY BAD.
If you look on the "interactive timeline" on the bottom, you'll se that Pop came out in February 1997, but when you go to albums page, there is a line in text pretty much obvious that says:
"Pop
Release date: March 1997"

C'mon, if u2 doesn't know when was their album released, who will know.
And that's not the only mistake.
How can the site of the best band be the worst?

The world will never know.

I ran across a crazy error on u2.com the other day but cannot remember what it was at the moment... I must've wiped it from my memory.

Yea they are pretty weak there. Usually the only times I go on that site are to look up song lyrics, or get album cover art to put on my iTunes songs. But other than that, I never stop to read anything. I use to check out their forums like 2 years ago, but stopped after I found Interference

Admittedly, my eyesight isn't the greatest, but come on. The font size on that site is so small it's just an aggravation to read. Plus the fact that the better fan-run websites are usually more on top of breaking news than U2.com.

Not impressed.

The site needs a major overhaul, I agree. Its pretty bad - do the band really approve of it?

True, but does U2.com have to be so officially awful?

Under U2.com's Lyrics section, "Original of the Species" is spelled "ORIGNAL of the Species"

I know, it's ridiculous, considering the sort of stuff they COULD be doing on it.

Let's face it, most of us would give our right arm (and our left one) to run their website....

(ok we'd have to type with our noses)

Yes the site completely sucks. I'm still a member but I never go there...whenever news is posted I can just come here. As far as the other stuff on U2.com goes...they hardly ever change it so I don't bother checking. It's a shame because their site could be awesome.

It sucks even more when you consider that this a band that has prided itself on being at the very edge (no pun) of technical innovation....

...I mean, really, think back to Zoo TV, and then Popmart, these guys were Multimedia before there was multimedia...the frustrating thing is, how easy it is to make an awesome website nowadays in Flash, and y'know, being 'the Band' itself, I'd think there wouldn't be a shortage on upto date news to put in it...

..shame.

I go there without my glasses on when I want to feel old. It is a pity that they can't make a decent site.
