Bono has done nothing uncool in the last year. Maybe longer ago than that, but not in the last year. I am stunned at the amount of people who condemn people for their political leanings, especially those who tilt to the left and claim to be 'open minded' yet close their minds to all views but their own and all those who believe them. It's like there is a set agenda of stuff you have to believe, or you refuse to accept the person. Thank goodness Bono isn't that way. He respects everyone, and in his own words, doesn't 'tar them all with the same brush.' Bono is the COOLEST.

Being "uncool" is, in my opinion, the coolest thing anyone can aspire to be.

Be uncool, yes be awkward. That lyric has really caught a lot of people's attention, for good reason. Why do we have to go through life worrying about what's cool? What's wrong with being uncool and awkward. Most of us really are that way anyway, why try to be something else.

Why do some people hold Bono up to a standard of cool?

Exactly! This is one of the MANY reasons that Bono (and the rest of the band, for that matter!) inspires me so much. "Be uncool, yes, be awkward" is just, imho, another way of saying, "be yourself!" Who gives a rat's arse what anyone else thinks? If youre happy with yourself, screw them!

I love it when he goes "shhhhhh"....
It's a family joke for us, we do it sometimes too.

And the phrase "Be uncool, yes be awkward" comes to mind too.
And who or what determines what's cool or uncool?
I admire those who are true to themselves and follow their hearts, in despite of other's opinions.

i do like the song but not the idea.ya i cant spell buhooo. its actually cool that bono goes in the white house to get some help. but one thing i have found out that some of you are in to very shity music like old fart music.i still have to find out how a person can like a great punk rock/(slash)rock band as u2 and then like shity music as some of you have pointed out we realy have to get some real rock music in you head.(note)this is not a stab at any one

Nope, that skinned head was the stupidest, biggest most uncool mistake he ever made. I would've posted it as the most uncool thing he had ever done, but I couldn't because it wasn't in the last year. (Thank GOD!) The longer hair is cool, and it's no 'mullet.' He looked like a rock star during Elevation, not some geek. Even if it were a mullet it looks a damn site better than that creepy sweaty armpit stubble looking shaved head he had during POP *cringe*

I see no mullet. I see a man with short hair. Too short for me. But cute.



Why the f*ck does everything have to come back to Bono's hair anyway??

Well thank GOD and Bono he changed back. I think Ali is on my side LOL. IMO, a rock star needs some hair to shake around. POP wasn't short hair, it was non-existent hair, stubble. Short hair is illustrated in the pic I posted. That is not at all long. If you don't like hair, there are 3 others in the band to look at. Gimme a head with HAIR!

Gulp, sorry, back to politics.

Speaking of politics, when is he going to Africa with Sec. O'Neill? It was supposed to be March, but March is over. Now I hear this month but when?

Yes, I care about his cause and have given it my support!

Yes, I want the photo op pics to post on PLEBA.

At least I am totally honest.

I like his hair now, but Popmart was good too. I remember at first I really didn't like POPMART Bono, but after seeing them in concert, it was FINE with me.

Mullets are evil. Death to mullets! heehee

I like mullets! Mullet bashing is just as bad as Pop bashing. I really cannot understand the anti-mulletness, I think it's just become a fad to bash them, and that's sad.

Uh uh. Nope. I have NEVER been one of those people to do something just because everybody else does. I bash mullets because they LOOK STUPID!!!

ick...I remember this boy that was in my class in 2nd and third grade. He had short hair on top and then this really long tail down his back. eew! eew!

We all have our own opinions, but this sexy, gorgeous man does not LOOK STUPID!



This man LOOKS STUPID



What the hell is this, a rubber chicken? *cringe* ew! ew!

Yes, I stated my opinion as fact, but so did you. No one really should.

I do agree that the rattail(what you described the kid in your class as having) was bad fad.

Again, opinion stated as fact. I disagree, but we all like what we like. Can't we all just leave it at that before this gets any lamer? Nothing to see here, let's move along. We need to get a life or something!
