Every rock band ever to exist not one has approached U2's consistently upward 40 years.
What they have done and what they continue to do at a surprisingly hungry pace, has left the realm of statistical anomaly & entered that of minor miracle.
The best band to ever touch the earth is U2, and the best band to ever touch U2 is none.
Most of our audience probably don't see us
as a political band, but an aware band -
which is what we really are.
If you really hate me or U2, don't shot me.
That will only sell another 5 million records; I'm worth more dead than alive.
If you really hate me, dont make me a legend!
U2's never been a band that has relied on hit singles, in fact we were known in the 80s and 90s as the biggest cult band in the world, because we had this major success, sold lots of records, played in big venues, but never really had any history of hits and single sales.
There is a love between the members of this band that is deeper than whatever comes between us, after almost fifteen years, which would be time for a divorce in almost any relationship, we looked at each other and said, 'Lay down your arms'.
