since this is my brithday thread i'm closing it.
I will not tolerate U2. they suck and they're an 80's band... nuff said

so lets assess why we should have discourse round here:

1. what is wrong with U2 ... no one has answered that topic yet
2. just b/c its your bday thread ... so what
3. U2 sucks ... what bands do you think are good, and why? have they sold more albums than U2? why does U2 actually suck? do you have any real reasoning behind that statement?
4. 80s band. Wrong in many ways. a. they started in 76. b. they have been performing for the past 30 years. c. they became big in 1987/1991. d. what bands do you listen to that are so much newer (and are actually good bands), e. what bands do you think are good/have withstood the test of time?, f. does led zeppelin count as an 80s band? U2 played only a 1/3 of their time in the 80s .. led zeppelin played about the same amount of time in the 80s ... but they are not classified as an 80s band
