How can Italians enjoy U2's music?

I mean come on, that band of dirty micks is so full of irish pride it's disgusting. All of the celtic mood in their early albums is obvious. That 'New York' song is all about how the Irish have taken over New York and plan keeping it that way. I bet the cover of U2's next album will have them in Green robes with pointy hoods standing around a flaming pint of Guiness.

And most Irish people are probably in the IRA, I heard that once on the internet. The IRA likes to bomb innocent people. And they even bomb there own countrymen, which shows that they have no sense of community or civic duty. Italian people should really be afraid since they are capable of bombing other Irish people.

If you're Italian, you should get no pleasure of listening to U2. Because as we all know...Being loyaly to your party...er...country is the defining factor in life.

Just a warning:

Think twice before making another thread like this. My sources tell me that it's not a good idea.

You know I will actually have to say here that really the biggest craziest over the top, I have a U2 tatoo over my entiure back people, actually are Irish. And the towns with larger Irish populations actually have more of a U2 fan base. It's cuz they are crazy micks.
Oh and lighten the hell up guys. Jeez.

Please repeat the message, it's the music that we choose.

I'm an Irish-Italian, Jewish Black-Hispanic religious nut and political fanatic, and I don't have a place in New York.

I am 100% italian.. live in Brazil, yeah, but still..... My whole family has the italian traditions. And why do we like U2? is the same thing of asking;

Why do we need food?

Simple: cos its essential, and thats it.

And, btw, italian U2 Fans are prolly one of the most numerous in the world
