U2/Bon Jovi

Springsteen

AC/DC

Zeppelin

Pearl Jam

 

I like U2 and Bon Jovi the same - and just coz I'm on a U2 site isn't why I chose U2. This list would be the same whether I was on this site or anotherfan site I belong to....

1) HANDS DOWN, U2

 

2) The Cure

 

3) The Smiths

 

4) New Order

 

5) Big Audio Dynamite

no not kidding the proclaimers are a great scottish act........and the foo fighters are a great live band.......

 

yeah i may be a subscriber to u2.com and have many u2 related cd's lp's etc etc but u2 are not the best band in the world in my opinion....they do some good stuff yeah but there is better out there.

 

 

I'm ever amazed at how folks think it's okay to call someone out because they don't express the opinon they think they should.
yeah just because i don't include u2 in my top 5 i'm suddenly the devil incarnate i mean come on for fuck sake theres much better out there i just don't happen to be one of those people that thinks when bono farts it should sell a million fucking copies. i find the whole idea of holding this band up as some kind of messiac fucking relic that will save the universe with one song absolutly abhorrantly disgustingly awful and wish that people would just realise that they are just 4 fucking normal human beings who happen to make a decent song once in a fucking while and do not deserve to be placed on a higher than high pedastel.

 

Though U2 is my favorite band and they are very talented, I don't think they are the best of all time either. There are a few bands more talented than U2like,

 

1.The Stones

2.The Beatles

3.The Who

4.Zeppelin

5.Hendrix Experience.

 

However I do believe that U2 comes in after these bands. They are full of talent and are easily one of the greatest rock bands of all time.

Sad Eyes... seriously, have you never heard of personal preference? I agree that U2 is certainly one of the best, but there are acts that have come before themthat even they would not put themselves ahead of.

 

Regardless, best is not really what we are talking about, what we are talking about is favorite. Just to ask... in your moment of judgment did you ever stop toconsider that what you consider one hit wonders, were not one hit wonders in their own country? You do realize that people who post here are from othercountries, don't you? And also, mass appeal does not equal good music. Just because something has popular appeal doesn't necessarily mean thatmusically it is the best.

 

I know many who would say that anyone who likes U2 has atrocious taste in music, especially with what they've been putting out lately. It's all amatter of opinion. Yours is not the only one that exists or has value. Your opinion is only right and has value to you and you alone.

 

Now... is U2 the biggest act in the world as we speak? Yeah, I'd say so. However, as I said, the biggest doesn't always mean the best. I know manyartists that are considered unknown by mass appeal and Top 40 standards where the musicianship makes U2 look like amatuers. But we aren't talking in termsof that here, we are talking about what appeals to you personally... your favorites. That is what the original poster asked.

I took this thread as what were my FAVE top 5...which is how I voted. My opinion of what bands I think ARE actually the top 5 of all time are going to varyfrom other folks' opinions.

 

I think judging others for their opinion is just close minded and wrong. We all had a chance to list our top five so why not allow others without the ridicule?

 

A year ago mine probably would have been a different list - and who knows it could change in a month from now. My musical tastes are so diverse and changeoften depending on what playist I'm thrashing on my ipod.

That's only because they are humble! Deep down inside I think they know that they are at the top of the heap; at least tied with other greats - I thinkthey'd probably get a little chuckle if they read some of the bands that some of you thought were better - then they'd let it roll off like aduck's back!

Alright - I semi-apologize. I'm still laughing at anyone that puts some of the bands that they choose to put in the top 5 whilst not mentioning thegreatest rock and roll band of all time!

 

But please, U2 is OFF THE CHARTS good - they deserve every bit of success they have had - popular appeal / musically / THE BEST!

 

I'd go so far as saying there are still MILLIONS that don't know what they are missing - my son being one of them who likes "Death Cab ForCutie" and totally doesn't "hear" / "get" U2.

 

Lead a horse to water yada yada yada!

See I take offense to that, because their new music is EVERY BIT as good as their old music.

Really?

 

Who for example?

 

I think U2 are THE BIGGEST BECAUSE they are THE BEST -

 

THUS they have earned biggest and best.

But, you're right - it's a "Whose YOUR favorite?" thread, not a "Who do you think is the best?" thread.

 

I just think it takes nerve to not mention U2 in your top 5 at THEIR fan forum!

 

And it's also worth a real laugh at seeing who some people think are better..."to them"!

Wasn't my intention to ridicule anyone - just felt the need to come to the defense of the greatest band of all time!
