Is There Anybody Out There?
Looking forward to the next U2 album? Nope, me either, Pal. They haven’t been relevant since 1992 and I don’t suspect they’ll be able to pull off another reinvention a-la-Auchtung Baby. So they’re toast. They’re the Rolling Stones, content to remain a tribute act of their own band.
Their brilliance has been forgotten and tainted by the drek they have put out since their ’91 Meisterstroke, so much so that even the kids in Ireland have immortalized them on the playground with this little ditty:
There once was a band named U2,
Who ruled and then mightily blew.
When asked, “Hey, what happened?”
The band took a crap and
Flood had someone remix their pooh.
