If you watch the documentary "The Making of the Joshua Tree" (there's a DVD available on Amazon, I think), Adam Clayton talks about the U2 - dance music connection.

No. Most of his threads border on nonsense and/or complete factual inaccuracy.

Like this one. U2 is not dance music. U2 has not influenced dance music. You can dance to some U2 songs, but that doesn't make it "dance music" as that refers to a specific genre and type of music.

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."

Read again the starting post... The guy didn't mean to say that U2 are dance music.
If you understood that, you'd see that what he's trying to say is that there are several elements from dance music in some U2 songs.
Didn't you read the "Streets" example? It's a good one. Now, apply it to other songs in their catalogue...

Read again the title of this thread. He claims that it was U2 that formed dance music. And I think we can all agree that's ridiculous.

Of course U2 didn't form dance music, that's ridiculous. But other things that were said here are pretty true and U2 gave his clues in dance music, even in genres that are not directily related with it.
