Im not sure why everyone associates U2 as being a 'hit' band because it is not true at all. infact none of my favorite songs by them are the most popular at all. I wouldnt say im obsessed with u2 but i think they are amazing and i truly appreciate they're beautiful contribution to the world of music. and i love the comment by holdenandthejets.

It's strange to me that people either love this band to an obnoxious degree or hate them to death. U2 really are a good band, but I guess it's "cool" to hate them.

At the end of the day, they are a singles band. Their albums struggle too much with consistency. When I listen to a U2 album, there's typically two or three awesome tunes, half a dozen mediocre to good songs and a song or two that is terribly subpar. I do think The Unforgettable Fire is the exception to this rule as it holds up pretty well. The only weak track on that particular album is the one that Brian Eno forced them to put on the record, so I can forgive them for that misstep.

From SuedeSwede 01/22/2014 23:27
They are a greatest hits band with no consistent album. I think people are a bit irrational towards The Joshua Tree and subsequently they get a lot more hate than they should, but other than the two "hits" on The Joshua Tree, and maybe that other one, it's pretty poor. Same with Achtung Baby, it has that one "hit" and a few others.

Their only problem is consistency, as an overall band I actually think they're okay.

I've tried to understand why they are loved by so many. I certainly don't think they're terrible, they're a good band, no more, no less.
