Where do you start?!

Bringing weird fans on stage during COBL during the most recent tour has to rank pretty high.

Bono's vertigo headband, his guyliner, and his hair on this tour.

This, and also Bono's rant about the 'SF heart U' sign during the Save the Yuppies concert

"Am I bugging ya... I don't mean to bug ya. Okay Edge, play the blues!"

(Followed by the most unbluesy solo of all time).

Oh, and I'll Go Crazy If I Don't Go Crazy Tonight. I'm very surprised a song with a title like that turned out to be so bad.......

Bono screaming at a woman for using her cell phone while on the vertigo tour is pretty high up the list for me. At the time, the camera phone was brand new, and it must be very annoying to celebrities to constantly have cameras shoved in their face, but this was over the top.....

'Am I buggin you' has become a classic U2 moment though..

This. Just look at it. Look at the fake, overly happy smiles. I hope they never do this kind of corporate ar*e kissing again. This is why lots of people don't like U2.

The 2nd half of ATYCLB (and HTDAAB) were also cringey.

Bono's vertigo headband


Especially when he put it over his eyes and tried to light up some fireworks.

Thanking Bank of America. Shaking George W's hand. I understand a Bono does these things for a 'good' reason, but it is hard to take sometimes. Especially hard when I am paying hundreds of dollars to see them.

Agree with Bono's eyeliner, his latest hairstyle, selling out to Apple, and the terrible three songs from NLOTH. One with Mary J Blidge Bidge Bilge Bige? was absolutely horrible though.
