U2 has been boring us for the last 30 years, but they're still putting out crap music and videos. Their new video for "Get Out of Your Own Way" is just stupid. It's not edgy, or moving, or even mildly interesting. It's just stupid.
It shows the world being taken over by Trump's white supremacists buddies. So Bono says "fight back". Yawn.

Known for making corny statements that he believes are very wise and cryptic, Bono said in a recent interview that the election of President Trump has sent the 'moral arc of the universe' bending the wrong direction. He got the 'moral arc' thing from MLK.
(Bono is a good friend of Bill and Hillary, by the way)

If that isn't corny enough, here's more:
'The baseness of political debate, the jingoism, the atavistic fervor of Trump's verbiage reminded us that we were dreaming if we thought evolution applied to consciousness.' Wow, that's heavy, Bono.

I completely agree that he is horrible in every way.

But.

Trump. Bill. Hillary.

Can a thread exist here without these references anymore?

You missed triggered.


So, triggered.

Their early stuff was better even though I wasn't really a fan of theirs.
But I would imagine that 30 years of having people kiss your butt telling you how great you are would have a negative effect on your creativity.

Pretty much agree although I couldn't watch the video as it contains Bono and I'm allergic.

I lost alot of respect for the Edge and U2 in general after years of virtue signaling and the Edge talking with Jimmy Page and Jack White about guitars.

I'm not a fan of White per se, but I left it with less respect for Edge than I had for White going into the video.

Bono is also friends with George Soros' son, Alex (who is following in his father's footsteps).

Total scumbag piece of trash who will exploit starving children in Africa for a photo opportunity, while wearing Cartier sun glasses and whatever else.

Also look up his ONE Foundation scandal, where this "charity" of his got in trouble for spending barely over 1% of their profits on actual charity. Terrible music, terrible human being

I deleted their crappy “free” album from my iTunes library. Apple tries to force their “music” on everyone, but there is a tool to delete it now. Free is too expensive to own their crap.

Jimmy Page.

Had a 14-15 year old "girlfriend" back in the day.
Well, "Great Balls of Fire", I guess it wasn't his cousin, though...
I guess the U.K. Had Arkansas rules for dating back then.


But yeah, As for U2, their early stuff was really good. Even Achtung, baby was a decent album. That was the last one, though. You can't flush a Bono.

Reminds me of Warren Buffet and Bill Gates each pledging $1 billion to develop Africa.
Imagine how much $2 billion would help in the US for schools, West Virginia people could all have shoes, etc.
But instead they chose to make a huge deal out of giving money to Africa...to open up new markets for their investments. Philanthropic my ass...

I always wondered why Edge was included in that doc. Seemed like the odd man out. Page is obviously the master here, but White can hold his own and has a unique sound. The Edge? It seems he just play a couple chords and then endlessly tweaks it with hundreds of pedals/loops/amps/mixers etc. Not that impressed.

Willie Nelson thinks Trump is a dork. That's enough for me. Who's this Bono dude?

What a load of horse snip.

U2 music sucks.

Bonos opinions SUCK.
