U2 Survey

I don't know if this has been posted here before or even if this is the right place but I found this interesting survey about U2 fans on @U2.com.

http://www.atu2.com/survey/

Some surprising and interesting results.

I was amongst the minority that chose Pop as their best album. And how come Bono's mullet didn't win worst U2 fashion disaster? Come on! Adam had the 'fro goin' ON! He should NOT have got that. *shakes head* His 'fro was cool... *sulks*

Yeah and I'd like to know that, even though Finlands U2s fan base is small at only 0.42%, why do U2 always chooses to play in Sweden, whose fan base is only 0.33%, instead!?!

The male -female fan ratio came as a gigantic surprise to me. I'd think they have wayyy more women fans! Do they not KNOW of Pleba?

I was shocked too. I was waiting for it to come up and thinking "Yes, we all know that the woman will be greater here" and there were more males!! But I've only been subjected to PLEBA, which is pretty gal-dominated, so I guess that's why. Or mebbes more lads could be arsed to do the survey.

Lads aren't the same kind of fans we are though. They like them clearly for their music and tours and all that jazz.... and WE on the other hand like them for.... their..... MOJO. For lack of a better word.

So true. Well, of course, we love their music too. Lads shall never understand the true meaning of beauty. Unless they are either gay or U2 themselves.

Yep. Which is why Pleba has the catchline, "Reinforcing heterosexuality in women, one woman at a time."
Any woman would fall in love with these pics.

Darn I missed it How did we miss it? I like Adam's fro and Bono's mullet, no question the worst fashion mistake was Popmart! Bono's hideous muscle shirt, Adam's jailhouse duds, Edge looking like a B movie pimp. Only Larry was okay.

They looked like clowns! SILLY costumes IMO I prefer sexy myself (see Fly, ZOOTV )

But the mullet was the hottest back in the day. Of course it was better after he grew it out into the JT mane Adam's fro Lumberjack Adam from UF

Good thing about U2 is, they've done so much, there's something for everybody!

Well, of course the Fly was the most smokin'est thing ever. I was bored today and this kind of skipped out my mouth, when I was trying to explain to my friends about Bono. (They're getting sick of it now, I think...)

"Nothing is better than Bono in leather." Ain't it great?

I SO agree with you. Pop in my opinion was the worst fashion era. The Pop chop, the muscle shirt, the wife beater tanks.... adam's outfits, etc. And yes the mullet was hot back in the day.
