Y'know, U2 apparently were sellouts with Unforgettable Fire. Joshua Tree put them on the cover of Time, they were called sellouts, U2 made Achtung and Zooropa, sell outs, Pop? They held a press conference at K-Mart. Oops! Sell outs!

 

Know who aren't sell outs? Talentless obscure indie bands who's albums you can only get at their shows, they charge about 30 bucks for them, and its usually a CD of 5-10 songs. But hey least they aren't sell outs.

 

Know who erally are sell outs? Green Day. They've turned into MTV and Mainstream Record company whores. Green Day are sell outs.

 

 

I agree with Trent Reznor when he said the Grammies were self congratulatory crap. Guess who were part? Green Day. Who's album was turned into a broadway musical? Green Day. That's Sell out.

 

U2 aren't sell outs. If all they cared about was money, they'd just release the same 10 track album that sounds like Joshua Tree from 1989 till now. U2 aren't a top 40 band, and the fact that their recent album was an album they wanted to make for themselves and not for hits shows U2 cares more about the music and their fans.

 

I mock Joshua Tree because it is so overrated. And who ever calls me one of those U2 can do no wrong fans, fuck you.

I guess that makes Panth the Chopping Bored.

panth i agree with what you said there, but the thing is u2 made no line for the fans? dont most fans hate the album?

They made the album they wanted to make, and for the fans.  They didn't figure they're fans were old and unchanging and pissy.

 

There's more closet No Line fans than you know anyways.

but most music these days is bought by young peeps, mainly through i-tunes and sales wise by u2 standards, thats a flunk!

 

i like no line, im old, but i have read more posts on here about how crap the album is than how amazing it is.

If U2 wanted to be greedy then The Claw, Popmart and ZooTV productions wouldn't have materialized....and also those cool LED curtains.

 

If U2 hadn't been greedy The Claw, Popmart and ZooTV productions may not have materialized tongue.gif

We'll see how liked NLOTH is when @U2 publishes the results of their survey. IMHO it will be a good representation of how well is the new album liked.

If U2 were greedy, they'd have the same / higher ticket prices with a lot cheaper and more conventional stage setup, keeping the difference to themselves. Instead, they chose to spend $0.75 million a day to have The Claw.

There's more negative than positive about pretty much everything U2 these days in here.

 

 - Not playing in City X sucks;

 - Playing stadium X instead of Y sucks;

 - Not playing in my country (the guys must hate my country);

 - The Claw sucks;

 - Not playing arenas sucks;

 - Ticket prices suck;

 - Bono a turd;

 - The opening song sucks;

 - The choice of songs sucks;

 - The encore sucks;

 - DVD sucks;

 - YouTube broadcast sucks;

 - etc....

You know what I hate about these threads? All the reposting of who said what. pages and pages and pages of reposting. Why can't people simply reference who's comments they are responding to and get on with their next thought? All I do now is scroll scroll scroll and hunt for whatever new words have been put in before signitiures and stuff.

Personal irritation!

@scout 6 - are you talking about this kinda thing?

 

@kristaps - no matter what way you look at it, the current prices to stand in a field, or sit on a plastic seat, to listen to a few tunes, is extortion. Many people convince themselves that it is value for money, but where is the value?
