U2 sucks, and they don't deserve a Grammy
So I was reading a blog today called Darkhat, and he was recapping the Grammy Awards this year:
“U2 picked up a leading five Grammy awards including album of the year for How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. U2 also won song of the year, best rock performance, and best rock album. Yah, it's all politics nowadays. I think you can tell I hate U2, which is why they are the only artist not pictured in this post…”
Finally a guy who agrees with me- U2 sucks. They suck donkey-d*ck. No really, they do. Here is my ‘two cents’ from a previous post back in December of 2005:
For the category ‘Song of the Year,’ the rock band U2 was nominated for “Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own.” WTF? Why the heck was this song nominated? During 2005 this song reached #15 on the Adult Top 40 chart and #29 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart in April 2005. It also reached #97 on the Hot 100.
Hardly impressive statistics for a song that the academy is considering to be worthy of ‘Song of the Year’. They are also being nominated for ‘Album of the Year’ as well. Which doesn’t at all lead me into my next point but I’ll continue anyways.
U2 sucks. In their early years they had their glory days, but even then their music sucked. Yes I’m probably a huge minority compared to the majority of people who actually like U2- but I really feel the public is just ‘misguided.’ Hasn’t anyone noticed that every song sounds the same? EVERY song is HUGE and drawn out, in a ‘monster cathedral-like rendition, and which the same guitar cords are recycled from their old songs… don't forget Bono screaming and splattering the same “Oooohs” all over the songs chorus with tons of unneeded reberb/echo. Boring, boring, boring, awful, awful, awful. I can’t even change the radio station or my iPod fast enough before I want to vomit in my mouth. On top of all that, the entire band is extremely pretentious as well.
Hopefully I’m not skirting around how I truly feel about U2. I’m just trying to tell it straight. Here’s someone that agrees with me. Help us all if they win a Grammy this year. We’ll all know for a fact that the Grammy’s is politically influenced if these guys win anything this year.
