Just one quote from there:

"Not even close. No way U2 is even in the top 10. I wouldn't hit a dog in the ass with a U2 CD."

You can listen to an entire U2 album in thirty seconds, its all the same, no surprises, no breaking out of molds, no experiments, no chances taken, no passion, no fun, no politics, no message, just keep on dishing out product

LMAO Those people are INSANE!! The stuff they are saying is hilarious but I had to stop reading after I read this:

Quote:
I would not even put U2 in the top 50 bands, but they would probable qualify in the top 100.



hehehe

Salome, I think your missing one of your emotions... where's a smiley that is "shaking it"?

I think the Beatles have to be considered the greatest band ever just on influence alone.

U2, however, definitely fall into the second group of all-time great bands, along with the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and the Who. If you want to speculate on who would be in the third group, go ahead.

Adam: Look guys, I got a Springfield spoon for my spoon collection.
Edge: Oh boy, here we go...
Bono: Wow, how many is that now Adam?
Adam: Nine. If I didn't have my spoons, I'd go insane.
Bono: Can I see it?
*adam gives bono the spoon, bono throws it away*
Adam: My spoon!

I agree! This post was SO ridiculous that I had to sign-up just to mock and laugh at this person 'til my fingers bled from typing. Anyone that can write that clearly is living in a world without clue.
