It's odd because I get the same reaction from a lot of people. I mention U2 and they just look puzzled. But mention U2 to a U2 fan and you have a half-hour conversation. One time I was at an Economic Club of Chicago luncheon and spent the entire time talking with the man next to me about grammatical errors and mispronounced words in U2 songs (such as "an intellectual tortoise"). The rest of the table did not have a clue.

Some people just aren't into music. But still, after 25 years of being a band and being pretty successful, you would think one might have at least heard of the band.

On another note, after Maddy met Bono a few months ago (see avatar pic), I showed the picture to my parents, but they had no clue who the guy was. I showed the picture to my mother-in-law and she said, is that Boner? At least she recognized the guy (she'd have no clue of his music/band).

My mom is like that too... She likes Bono though she doesn't care much about the music. But in fact she doesn't care about music in general so :shrugs: Anyway she can recognize a U2 song by Bono's voice... That's because I like to listen to music a little too loud

At least his name gets pronounced correctly more often now...when I hear people call him "Bone-O" I want to scream.

^ yeah my gramps always calls him that

Like I said in another thread:

A while back when I tried talking to a friend of mine about U2 this is what he said and i quote:

…” Isn’t that the band with that skinny guy with huge glasses who does cocaine and all that charity work?"

It's pretty ridiculous but he said it...

well, it's pretty obvious... Bono's the frontman and the man "sells" himself better than the other three.
But probably the person u talked to lives on Mars..

A friend refers to U2 as "him."

"U2 would look better if he took those shades off."

!!!!! OMG that's the funniest thing I've ever read!

But the person is right in a way. Bono does look better now without the huge shades.

How can you not expect that? Half of the articles I see anymore refer to the band not as "U2" but as "Bono and U2."

True, that he does. But to refer to him as U2 is plain hilarious to us fans! It makes very irritated with her though.

They ought to rename themselves the Larry Mullen Band.


That'd show them.

It could be worse, she could've said, "Isn't that that band with Sting?"
