U2 is the Greatest Band of All Time and This is Not a Discussion… Proof Below

October 22, 2009

I once posed the question who is the greatest band of all time. The answers I received were horrific.

THEREFORE, in HONOR of U2 and their lifelong work, and the fact that I’m going to see them this weekend and most likely be backstage with Bono and the gang by the end of the show… I’m putting all of you doubters to rest. By the time you listen to each of these songs once you will never disrespect me & the greatest band of all time in any way ever again (if you have a brain or ear for talent that is)  🙂  !!!

This list does not include any Techno Songs which have been remixed and are the best Techno songs of all time as well. Including what Paul Oakenfold did to make himself famous.

Also this is just their recognizable songs. This list does not include their hundreds of artsy or more off beat songs that most people would not like until they heard them a number of times because it’s not bubble gum pop that is easy to digest. And of course once you do listen and pay attention to the lyrics and that they actually have meaning (sorry Nirvana, you know I still love you) you can not help but have even more respect for the four highschoolers that met randomly in Ireland and formed a good old fashioned rock band. Plus, I missed about 20 songs that belong on this list because it’s 5 in the morning and I should be asleep.

So I’m sorry… BEATLES WHO? RED HOT WHAT? Aerowhen? ROLLINGwhere????

And anyone that has a different opinion, that’s ok, just know that it is wrong. I FREAKIN DARE YOU!
