Against U2

Jangly inconsequential guitar (splendidly deconstructed by Bill Bailey). Industrial, soulless and linear songs infused with the pretentious political posturing of grown men who call themselves 'Bono' and 'the Edge': this is the evil that is U2, ladies and gentlemen. I'm so happy I'm not alone.

I can't find it on the website but in the dead-tree version of the G2 there was a U2 entry in the "all-time best heckles", or something:
Bono: "Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa starves to death."

Glaswegian voice: "Why don't you stop doing it, then?"
Evokes a feeling of city nationalism.
