I feel the same way about U2. I used to love that band back in the early to mid 80s. Anything after Joshua Tree sucked - pure corporate, made for MTV/radio BS. I see U2 as one of the biggest sellouts of my generation and represent everything I hate about the music industry. The fact that they won the best rock album Grammy last night only epitomises the band they are now. Awards shows like the Grammys only underscore what I dont want to listen to - its the pap they try and feed the Sheeple, and U2 is the embodyment of that.
