    Amirite? C'mon guys, it's been waaaayyyy too long since we made ourselves feel better by criticizing music we don't like. We used to get these great "U2 Sucks!" thread like once a month! What gives? Don't tell me you're actually out doing charity work, you should be ridiculing Bono for it! Here, I'll start:

    I gave up on them after Joshua Tree. They're so fucking lame now. Edge just plays the same three damn chords over and over and Bono....jesus [insert South Park jpeg here].

    always thought of them as so seriously full of themselves after 'joshua tree' and bono thinks he's some kind of nobel prize deserving global influence. and remember "zooropa" and "pop"... :crazy:

    I like some tracks from the newer albums, but yeah, I don't get the immense hype

    I know - a rock star with a messiah complex?! Can you believe it?! If I didn't have this internet thing to keep up with, I'd go out and show him what real charity work is.

    I personally like them but I find that all of their new stuff sounds almost the same.

    On a side note, I find it amusing that of all the members on Style Forum, Kunk vehemently defends them whenever the topic comes up.

    Some of their old stuff is good. The last new song of their's that I liked was Beautiful Day. They're garbage..


    I fucking hate that band with a passion!

    This reminded me of how much I 'don't get' Bruce Springsteen (will try to remember to cross-post in 'Things I Don't Get Thread'). Sure he's got a ton of great songs, but I just can't take the "AH WON, TOOO, AH WON,TOOO, THREEE, FAWH(drums!)

    yeah, this. When my son finds it on the radio I have to pull over, get the fambly out, douse the car with gasoline and set it on fire. That's how awful Nickelback is.

    U2 hasn't been good since Achtung. Joshua Tree was their high point.

    FWIW, the guys at the guitar shop talked me into watching a documentary about Page, Edge, and Jack White. Edge was far and away the least-interesting person and story and player of the three. I gained a new respect for Jack White, though.

    I've never dug Springsteen. Never seen the appeal.

    I'm sure I'm going to get flammed for this, but another band I can't get into is, The Beatles. There are some songs of their's that I like, but I've never understood what the whole craze was about.


    It's the only logical solution.

    Yup.



    Same Same.



    Ditto.

    I could never get into Coldplay. Whenever I hear them, I can only picture shitty TV dramas or movies that use their tracks in the background.

    Now that''s just :crazy: talk re: the Beatles

    The Boss is a terrific songwriter, it's his over-earnest performance style that gets me.

    I've never heard Coldplay, but always assumed they sucked based on the guy who married Gweneyth P.

    It works in a variety of applications. For instance, my son asked me for the chords to some Nickelback song - I forget which one, they all sound alike - and I checked it out and showed him on his guitar. Then I wiped my hard drive, changed ISP's and set fire to his guitar.
