Maybe that is by goal. From their begin, the four individuals from U2 – Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, Jr. – have appeared to blossom with instigating response from their group of onlookers. Whether it's the band's blunt political position or their intermittent elaborate changes, U2 would prefer not to just acquire a superficial spot on your CD rack as a biggest hits accumulation or 30-year-old record. They prompt and rouse; they draw in and irritate.

That is just fine, yet shouldn't something be said about the music?

As they built up their capacities all through the '80s, they launch into the stratosphere of populist enclosure rock before 1988′s Rattle and Hum achieved an inescapable basic kickback.

The beginning of the new thousand years presented to All That You Can't Leave Behind, a gigantic hit that discovered a center ground between their numerous ways to deal with the studio, and 2014′s Songs of Innocence took the band back to their roots with tunes about their most punctual days – even as their driving edge conveyance system roused a crisp round of adoration them-or-scorn them clamor.

You presumably either adore U2 or can't stand them. Whatever your emotions, our rundown of U2′s collections positioned most exceedingly awful to first will either reaffirm your dislike or help remind you why you worship the band in any case. Post your comments to our Facebook page
