Everything they've released since Things to Make and Do. Sell-outs.

What are in your opinion U2's "Jump the Shark" Moments?
Basically where they went off the deep end in the worst ways possible.

-Bad PR moves
-Weird songs/Collaboration
-Fashion nightmares
-Cringeworthy moments for you as a fan

1. Lena Dunham appearing on screen during Ultraviolet Friday




Like I said, If I have to wear a Lena Dunham mask, I will organize a Beatles style fire pit. I will Periscope it and then play it on infinite loop.

Then, I'll take the ashes and scatter them on a river in India. 30 years of fandom will end that day.

BRAVO!!!!!!

When I heard Lena Dunham was on screen during ultraviolet's tribute to women, I almost set my hair on fire. Unbelievable!

'This' close to Amy Schumer on screen next to Rosa Parks.

Re: Lena Dunham, she did publicly say she was going to move to Vancouver if Trump won so putting her up on the screen at Vancouver is topical.  Even though she didn't actually follow through on her promise.

Madonna promised fellatio to anyone voting for HRC but that also didn't materialize.

I have more, but I'll let you all list some


The Irony of this moment, is that Aung San Suu Kyi has turned out to be almost as corrupt  and equally as unscrupulous as the leaders of Burma before her. Look it up.

Yeah but identity politics tells us that she is just and true no matter what.

That "Abraham, Jehovah, Jew all true" chant was really creepy during one of their tours.  Gave me an eerie, Jim-Jones-on- retreat sort of feeling....

I actually didn't mind that. There is plenty of dischord in Europe so I see why they said that.

If this were 1988 we'd be saying "Rock and Roll Stops the Traffic" in Rattle & Hum was Jumping the Shark
