"Legit" Question

Was U2 ever a "good" band? Remember when they made those crazy "experimental" albums, like, Pop, I think, and Zoo TV, I think? Were those albums "ahead of their time?" Like is "Sunday Bloody Sunday" a good song? Is "With or Without You" a good song?  Or like, have they always been and always will be a band for like yuppies and liberal dads?

Seriously though. These are the kinds of things I think about.

  2. I think I kind of like early U2. Maybe I like U2. I don't know. I like the Police too, like Once Upon a Daydream....The Police sing about some real dark shit, you know? I think all the time, like...why is XTC, essentially a pop band, okay to like, but U2 is like...I don't know. I have mixed feelings. Mixed feelings. U2 didn't "age well," lol. Sting didn't "age well" either. Shit. I feel afraid.

    You are not a yuppie (poor ass/poor ass/poor ass) or "liberal" or a dad, as far as I know. Unless you and steph had a child and were afraid to tell me because I would "judge" you. I would judge you, btw. Maybe Shane is your child.

  3. Having a child is fine actually, I mean...not like there's anything else to do. You can like, entertain yourself by lying to it and psychologically damaging it and stuff.

  17. I thought about this for a long time. I decided you should go to beauty college and open a salon called "She's Got the Look."

    SexyVixen, I have a question for you, how come in the 70s it was okay to speak openly about fucking young teens, but now it's not? I was listening to "Christine Sixteen" earlier and like, one of the lyrics is, "She's been around, but she's 'young and clean.'"

  18. A 'prostate massaging for dummies' guide would be nice. You can listen to U2 or whatever shitty pretentious band you like while answering it, too.

    Indulge, by all means.

  19. I like how this post about U2 has like 7000 comments. I felt like it was gonna get real "cut throat." Kind of an anticlimax.
