What is this "money" about?

I found these quite a while ago, but always forgot to ask: what are they about? Obviously ZooTV, but what about it? Anyone?

Bono bucks!

They were used as confetti during the ZooTV tour. I still have a Bono buck somewhere.

It's subversion, subverting the main stream, etc. The ZooTV ethos was based around that.

I am reminded of the KLF's stunt whereby they publicly burned a million quid back around the mid 90's (maybe they got the idea from U2).

Not that any of you will even have heard of the KLF. So I'll provide a reference:- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KLF

Vickss if you read one of the links it says the KLF did their stunt in '94. So it looks like they might have been inspired by U2 (rather than the other way around).

Actually I read in a music mag once that KLF sampled U2 crowd noises for some of their tracks. Strange but true!

Why would it be that you'd expect none of us to have heard of the KLF finance guy? Far from it! I'm very familiar with their stuff and know about that incident where they burned a £M!!!!

Also, they come from Scotland, same as me! Not that i'd EVER burn money, no way!
