Rollins who's real last name is Garfield..........wishes he were able to get his message across like Bono does but obviously is the jealous type.   Grew up without a dad so I'm sure that contributed to his outspoken rebelious attitude

Billy Coragan
Smashing Pumpkins

It was 1983 I was 16, and from the moment I heard New years day it was unlike anything I ever heard it was fierce, political,passionate they quickly became the most important band in the world to me.
New Year's Day is amazing, I can't believe U2 guys were just around 23 back then. Good taste by Corgan

Agreed! NYD is the song that made me notice them. Still love it.

When asked by an interviewer to say one word to describe U2, Tom replied "expensive"!

Interviewer:  If you could push a button that would magically guarantee an end to the chaos in Iraq, but you would have to walk around with ‘Bono Rules’ tattooed to your forehead for the rest of your days, would you do it?
 
Henry Rollins:  No, but I would do it on your forehead for busfare.

To which Bono, on hearing of this interview, said "Henry who?"

It doesn't always bother me when another artist criticize' s U2, I'm still a fan of The Bunnymen and The Cure despite their opinions of U2's music. It could possibly be jealousy on their part for all the adoration U2 recieves, but Henry Rollins just runs his mouth way to much. It reveals his desperate attempt for attention.

It amazes me how some bands feel the need to diss U2 and in return U2 says something kind or complimentary about their music, case in point U2 has always spoke kindly about The Bunnymen and Edge recently gave a thumbs up to The Cure' s A Forrest . Apart from Bono and Edges drunkin remarks about Phil Collins ,I have never heard them diss a band point blank .

It speaks about the grace they carry, beauty is everywhere, even in what social morale would call the worst kind of human beings on planet. Someone who calls someone egocentric only reveals and projects their own ego. That's a beauty of reflection, because what irritates you in other people is actually only an aspect of yourself. Having an ego is necessary, the question is how much it drives you, and how much is there a room for God to speak. I see a very healthy ego from Bono myself, most of the time, but there's a possibility to be lost in it too.

From Cork, the Sultans of Ping were one of the few Irish acts to have a pop at their fellow countrymen in U2 on many an occasion. I remember that even the art work from this particular single was in Achtung Baby font (it was 1992) and read 'U talk 2 much'. To this day they blame U2'-loving Hot Press magazine for their demise:

Never realized he's only 6-7 yrs younger than the bandmates of U2.  I tend to associate Smashing Pumpkins with a different era of music (on a side note- SP put on a heck of a show when I saw them in '96 but it was ruined by the jack***es behind us who were yelling at us for standing when they were the only ppl in the arena sitting)

After reading bondylan's post about Rob Thomas saying that U2 is the greatest band ever and trying to find when Rob Thomas said that, I found this--a handful of musicians talking about their favorite U2 song: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Apparently, Taylor Swift is a fan.
wow, I just lost a little bit of my love for U2!

Let's not be so harsh.  I'm a die hard U2 fan but I'll admit I like a couple Taylor Swift songs.  I also think it's great that she's a fan.  People from all genre's can enjoy the music we know and love.
