The timeline on this site (http://www.u2.com/timeline) says "U2 formed in 1978 after Larry Mullen pinned a 'musicians wanted' ad to the notice board at Dublin's Temple Mount School.".

 

Even the dogs in the street know that Larry posted that famous ad in 1976!  OK they had a different name then but it was still the U2 that we know and love today.  I can't believe U2.com of all places got that wrong.

Well, the original band Larry formed in 1976 was the Larry Mullen Jr. Band, which had different members than U2, it had all of U2 and the Edge's brother. I believe that is it is celebrated in 1978, because that is when Edge's brother left the band and it became U2.

Can we get an official ruling from Lary Mullen Jr himself on this?

Meh! Boy was released in 1980. That's all you need to know!

 

And over 30 years in the biz and counting....

 

The Cure have been going longer.....

 

The Rolling Stones and Cliff Richard own U2!
