what if u2 were a ROCKnROLL band

rockNroll started from the blues and u2 have 0 blues in their songs mainly guitar. so what if they were a rock band i think it would be great. but i think their the best pop band of our time!

Shaun - I'm not sure what you were expecting for this thread -

But to everyone else, the usual reminder - no personal attacks, please keep it civil

Well, I'm not really into blues so I wouldn't like U2 then.

i'm not a big fan of Amercian blues and rock and roll, so i'm glad that U2 are not that type of band. I love classic rock from Europe. I've always wondered if U2 was really rock 'n roll band. I know they're a rock band, and always have been, but they've always straddled the rock/pop line. I'm glad they're not rock 'n roll though.

you don't know what rock and roll is. So how can you ask that question?

U2 IS a rock band, but rock is such a vague term these days. However, if U2 were anything other than what they are, they simply wouldn't be U2, then what would all of us be doing right now?

Alot of people say rock and roll mutated out of the raucous R&B of the time - so I guess it depends on what all of us define as rock and roll, and where it came from.

*sighs*

shaun, rock and roll can be many things; it doesn't have to always have elements of the blues in it.

but to remind you, u2 recorded with the king of the blues himself, b.b. king.

and, on the latest album, love and peace or else is like a blues from mars.

Some of it was blues influenced but it was not really blues. Led Zep were geniuses at turning blues into rock.

If they aren't rock then what are they? And what bands of today would be rock?
