This should be an interesting poll. I'd love to see how many people take the time to come here but don't have U2 as their favorite band. I find it hard to believe, but I bet there are a few here, especially based on the response to some of the threads and the fact that there are actually people here that do not own every U2 album.

[color=royal blue]Dear God YES. Before I got into U2 I had been looking for a favorite band forEVER. It seemed like everyone else had one, and I just couldn't find any one band that I loved.

Yay

It's really hard to say. I don't think of myself as a fair-weather fan but maybe I am by some standards because they are not always my favourite band. It's partly because I really just don't like some of the mid-90's stuff--and yes, it's true that I probably haven't given it enough of a chance. But I'm not like some people who literally listen to U2 almost every day of their life, not even close. I would say U2 is always one of my top three or four bands, but they move around in those positions. They have frequently been my top favourite, often for long periods of time, in the almost eight years since I became a fan. I often say Sting, U2 and Led Zeppelin when asked my top three favourites, but not necessarily in any particular order--and lately I haven't listened too much to Led Zeppelin so I don't know that they belong there. Right now, I have to say that my favourite band is Midnight Oil because I recently saw them live and have bought almost all their albums. I always liked them, but I'm not sure they ever cracked my top five. Now I'd say they'll be there for a long time.

Sooo...I couldn't really vote in this poll because none of the choices quite seemed to fit!

After a hard struggle between many bands, U2 was and is the only one I really, really love and after such a great time with this fantastic band it will stay like this!

ONLY U2!!!

I guess I would say what you described sort of fits Number 3 actually. I didn't mean #3 to sound like every other band meaning the teenpop stuff but just in general you enjoy them but no more than anyone else...

oh well that's the one drawback w/ creating threads- never make enough options!

I think there are more people out there that read/subscribe to this board than we would think who would not choose #1 though.

Yup, it's U2 all the way! Although I listen to other types of music and other awesome bands, U2 is the only one that I think is the soundtrack of my life.

I listen to heaps of different bands, but U2 is the only one I'm seriously obsessed with. If it was bands AND single artists, it would have been a tie between U2 and PJ Harvey for me, though.

I'm really only obsessive with U2, but I'd say the Stones are a close second.

The same thing happened to me as well. I always wanted an ultimate favorite band and then U2 came along. U2 is definitely #1 in my heart.

without a doubt U2 if my favorite band and as of right now my #2 band would have to be PJ Harvey. i fell in love with them when they opened up for U2 and have been collecting/listening to boot cds of em'. it's just a shame that they don't get the exposure they deserve on radio/mtv. i'm sick of turning on MTV and seeing the RAP/METAL thang all the time.....some dude screaming into the mic and the band seeing how loud/fast they can play.....so stupid!!!

Me too. I had been trying to find something I really liked, but nothing seemed to fit -- I liked some bands, but they didn't give me everything I wanted. And then I saw the Beautiful Day video.. Magic.
