Don't understand how anyone can not like U2......especially Joshua Tree U2

I really like the PSD option on Radio Paradise. What I'd really like, though, is a U2 filter button.

Don't ask me why, but when he's torturing his vocal cords towards the end of this I am inexorably reminded of someone trying to wring the last drops of water out of a wet cloth.

I have never understood the intense love many people have for this band personally. Just don't get it. But I have that right, troll or not.{#Wink}

 
pretty sure it's "monkees" but maybe not.

I've just been writing about this song in my memoirs. "One Tree Hill" was written for Greg Carroll, Bono's personal roadie, who was tragically killed in an accident in Dublin. He was back in New Zealand 6 months before his death, and spent an afternoon among friends at my home on Takapuna Beach. His death made that gathering even more special.

The most over rated and over played musical group since The Monkeys.  In 50 years people will be saying what??  How did this band get out of the bowery?  Never ceases to amaze me how repetitive and boring this band is.  You keep playin' em' Bill...I'll keep trashin' em'{#Cheesygrin}
I also get doubled over in fits of uncontrollable laughter, at how the U2 army gets so upset at my U2 bombs.  It's a crack up! {#Roflol}

Internet Troll is a real personality disorder and we understand the struggle. You have taken the first step at recovery and there are many great resources out there for you so don't be afraid.  I am sure all of RP users wish you the best.

 
So....on the one hand I want to 72% agree with below72, as U2 is one of those bands that I've very slowly started to appreciate, and even then I'm way off the mark compared to the U2 fans out there. 

Now, on the other hand, after I read jbuhl's reply, I laughed so hard that my rear end fell off my torso.  Although as far as negative comments go, below72 did give some reasoning and thoughts about it, and didn't just say "U2 sux"

I've got this song rated a 6, and I think the highest U2 song I have rated might be a 7.  And that's OK...we can't all like the same music.

Long Live RP!

Just saw U2 perform this live at Levi Stadium - powerful performance, especially with the backstory.  Great, great performance.
