Thanks for the correction.

Still, JT is often considered U2's best album ever. Therefore, for ATYCLB to already have matched JT's Grammy total is very impressive. Moreso, JT was NOT nominated for 11 awards!

WOMANFISH said that it also won BEST ROCK ALBUM, but I don't believe this category even existed in 1992 when AB was up for 3 awards much less 1988.
I'm not sure if Best Rock Album existed in '88, but it definitely did in '92 - that's the Grammy U2 won for AB. Also, "Pop" was nominated in '98 for this award as well.

Oh ok....so AB won TWO grammy's did it? That increases U2's grammy tally to 11!
That's pretty high (hey! i like stating the obvious!)
Also, I KNOW POP was nominated for BEST ROCK PERFOMANCE BY A BAND WITH VOCALS, so if they were nominated for BEST ROCK ALBUM as well, that gives them two nominations....very complex

So, yeah.....i guess that's stuffed up my tally for nominations too. That would give U2 AROUND 21 nominations....(lower than my original estimate) now i'm really confused!
Bless ya!

No, AB only won one Grammy, Best Rock Group Performance. Here is the list from the U2 FAQ, http://www.u2faq.com
6.1.1 Grammys
1988: Album of the Year - The Joshua Tree; Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group - "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

1989: Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group - "Desire"; Best Video Performance, Short Form - "Where the Streets Have No Name"

1992: Best Rock Group Performance - Achtung Baby

1994: Best Alternative Album - Zooropa

1995: Best Music Video, Long Form - "Zoo TV Live From Sydney"

2001: "Beautiful Day" wins in three categories: Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal

(Note: I've left out the nomination for Popmart - Live From Mexico City to only show the Grammy's U2 has won)

U2 has thus won 10 Grammy's, not 11.

C ya!
