U2 Haters

Has anybody had a U2 hate experience ? I live in Vancouver and most people I come around like u2 and some even love them but some people i've come across have a hatred for U2 that i'd never knew existed. One time I was in my favorite watering hole called The Cambie and I put some quarters in the juke-box to play 5 U2 songs and while it appeared that people were getting into it when it got the third song some guy stood up and said, "I HATE U2" I took that as he didn't like U2, I know some people don't like them but what posess this guy to get up and announce to the whole bar his dislkike just flabergasted me. This example is not the only time, I have even had close friends of mine who go out of their way to tell me how much they dislike them and have heard people make fun of them on tv and radio. The only thing I can think of is that their jealous that they can't get into it the way some people can. What do you guys think ? Have any of you beeen discriminated because of your love for U2 ?

p.s next time I goto The Cambie i'm gonna play the entire Best of Album Maybe if that guy hears them enough he will learn to love them.

All my friends *HATE* u2.........they just got bored of making fun of me when they realised I didn't actually care what they thought

Like they all like this black goth music...i like their type of music and dance music and every type of music and i tried to get them to listen to U2 but they wouldn't....its bad not to have a diverse taste in music

Yeah bono-vox I just started a U2 Hater thread and I guess it got moved into this thread. Makes sense there both about the poor outside world's distain for our beloved band and their ignorance for not realizing the true beauty and revelations within the ideology known as U2. Wow i'm speaking in U2 ebonics and guess what, it feels good

I think we should all get together once a year and give these 'no-good do-ers' a good a$$ whooping while we play U2 music in the background. I'm sure they'll have a rejuvenated appreciation for U2 or least a new perspective

Thats' funny and you definatley picked the right song, Billy Boola will piss off most of the populace which gives me an idea right now (sees brother, self professed U2 hater, walking around house) I'm sure he'll like it after a few listens.

I've found that you should kill the naysayers with kindness.

Don't irritate them and play crazy U2 songs that just serve to irritate. Play songs that will take them by surprise.

Play Kite. Play Love is Blindess. Play something akin to the kind of music they like, and when they ask "Who the hell is that?!"

You can proudly say:
U2!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very true. It's also true that if you take a stand on anything that there are people out there who will give you flak about it. Some people live and die by cutting other people down. I mean, hell, if I'm going to run into people like this on the blasted Renaissance Faire dance troupe circuit you're definitely going to run into it big time in the big leagues. I've sort of learned how to ignore it and just have fun with what I'm doing. I don't let other people rain on my parade!

Heck, as long as U2 are popular enough to play the Super Bowl, sell out Slane and this sort of thing, I'm not going to worry about U2 haters. I'm having a blast; I sort of doubt if they are.
