If it helps, I never much liked U2 either, They're not really a rock 'n roll band. They look like one and they stand on stage like rock bands do and play the instruments that rock bands play, but the music has a lot more in common with rock musicals like the Rocky Horror or Hedwig or Rent than actual rock music. Synthesized, anthemic, mannered, those sorts of things. Their forebearers are Queen and Meatloaf, not Jerry Lee Lewis or Ike Turner or the Stooges.
