I agree SBS should go. Hell, take Streets with it too. Even casual U2 fans have heard these songs like four times in the last 3 years.

And it's not just that it's 50 years of massive cultural relevance, but those 50 years wrre over only 18 (or fewer!) years ago.

It's like not knowing about WWII... in 1964.

Or not knowing about the moon landings in 1989.
1989? You really are 80s centric!

I can't bring myself to watch the video. I'm afraid of the amount of cringe that will be present.

I had an experience in my college class where I learned that several fellow classmates had no idea what Rock 'N Roll was... I still have a bit of PTSD from that situation. So anything involving college kids and music of the past brings about a bit of fear for the state of my peers. I don't know how people my age can be so clueless... Did none of their parents listen to rock music?

Wow, not knowing what rock music is. Now that is a shocking cultural shift.

I still don't understand why kids of today have to like or know rock music?   Every generation creates new sound and music, remember all that electronic pop stuff in the eighties, I try and forget that along with the fashion lol.  There is ongoing cultural shift.  Swing, dance hall, big band gave way to early rock n roll in the mid fifties, I am sure that was considered a shocking cultural shift at the time moving into the sixties lol.

First off, I'd just like to say that 80s music, movies and fashion, every style and genre is superior to anything that came before or after.



Haha I enjoyed it when I was living it but I look back at my permed big hair and shoulder pads and I still have a good laugh.
Not me! I still love 80s fashion! Though I was a teenager in the 70s so thatís the era I should identify with but, letís face it, the 70s were the worse fashions in the history of humanity.

Amazing job. Absolutely brilliant. Love it.

There are 2 shows I'd like to identify in the October video : the one at the very end (11 O'Clock) and the one where they sing October.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hey soloyan,

In case you or anyone else has the same question on a different video, the links to each video used for each album is in the description of the video.

Thanks again for watching!

Awesome ! Thanks so much. Looking forward to the next videos.

By the way... I think the band should hire you to do this officially.

Remember that some of the stereotypes pushed by people about the 80s today are not necessarily accurate.

I was in my twenties in the eighties and lived it and some of those stereotypes are pretty accurate in slightly exaggerated sort of way lol.  I just look at my old photos to know that!  I can certainly recognise them and have a good laugh!  Must be Aussie sense of humour at taking the pi*s.  Bono fitted in with his mullet and sleeveless t shirts and boots!  and Edge and his ripped jeans.  They did look cute though

I know I'm not craving a new U2 album anymore.
For me U2 reminds me of my youth or adolescence. I'm my bedroom studying for uni
listening to zooropa and achtung baby.
Or even growing up hearing beautiful day on the radio.
Where as now, they can't get on the radio anymore.
At least in the UK.
I've gone passed the excitement stage now.
I probably won't even listen to a new U2 album.

Just because your local radio won't play new U2 songs does not mean such songs are not great and as exciting as anything U2 have done before. If you like U2's older stuff, its highly likely you'll like their newer stuff if you give it chances, many listens. They are still a rock band making great rock music.

I mean, it looks really old now.  Also, I'm sure that strip clubs haven't changed much, it's just society has moved past treating women so poorly as this video does.

Yeah, it's rock music, so what?  It's not the tools but how you use them.  For me, this is the exact opposite of what U2 is.  U2 is emotion and atmosphere.  It's about revealing yourself without shame and celebrating honesty.  This is dull, horny nonsense.  It's not even fun, just trashy and gross.  The band is playing nothing memorable or special at all, same old soft metal noise, and the singer sucks, especially live.  Sorry to trash it so hard, but I really don't like Motley Crue at all.

Well, if you don't like Motley Crue, why did you click on the thread and comment? I don't bother to look at threads about bands I don't like or I am not interested in, let alone comment.

Oh, and strip clubs today are far more common and accepted by society than they were in 1987. The video itself is rated G and tame compared to what is widespread on the internet today. I also don't see anyone in the video being treated poorly in any way. Everyone seems to be having a good time. In 2018, there is nothing scandalous about this video at all. It may have shocked a small number of people in 1987, but definitely not in 2018 given what the average person does with their I-phone, facebook and twitter accounts.

I've not seen Motley Crue live, but I have seen Vince Neil live opening for Van Halen and I can assure you, he does a fantastic job singing live. The song, Girls Girls Girls is considered classic rock and still gets heavily played in strip clubs to this day despite the fact that more modern music has taken over at most of these clubs.

U2 also have had young women on stage and dancing in some of their videos. That all started with ZOO TV.

I'm going to listen to "Big Girls Are Best" by U2 now:
