    A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Personally, I don't pay any attention to groups who suck.

    Change my mind that they stuck. What don’t you like about U2? (or Rush for that matter - but I can see where Rush is more of an acquired taste. They gave great concerts)

    It was a surprise attack! On way home from the track, turned on Rock 104.7 the Bear and some screeching noise from Rush was playing. I don't get either of those bands.

    I spent 1983 listening only to Exit stage left. Rush is awesome. Recorded stuff and live. Had the best drummer that ever lived. Apologize!

    I like them both. Rush was one of my favorites for many years. Still a U-2 fan.

    Clearly you are tuning to the wrong stations. Screech 104.7 is notorious for screaching. Change my mind :)

    I did like some of U2's songs back in the day, but liberal Bonehead Bono has been so far left for quite some time. There is a lot of good music out there, too bad a lot the groups went full lib-tard.

    U2 is overrated crap. Rush is underrated (except in Brazil, apparently) greatness.

    Neither holds a candle to Talking Heads.

    Two words. Neil Peart.

    For the record, Rush is my favorite band. Saw them on their final tour in Vegas on our 15th Anniversary. Saw them every tour since Power Windows

    Why U2 sucks and Rush doesn't.

    U2's music is nearly 100% political. Rush's expands everything from galactic empires crumbling, trees fighting, law and chaos battling it out to a kid taking grandpa's 50 year old outlawed car on a joy ride.

    Album covers: Rush's border on art..U2's are just plain bad. How many U2 covers are pictures of themselves. Reminds me of Oprah's O rag.

    Expanded Universe: Neil wrote some awesome self reflecting books. Some of their work expanded into books, comics, etc. two more words: strange brew

    Bono's ego: what is the difference between God and Bono? God doesnt walk around Dublin thinking he is Bono.

    Rush's quirky sense of humor. Watch some of their videos. Rent recordings of their shows. There is some funny stuff in there.

    Musicianship: Rush are/were better players. Clayton holds nothing on Lee. The Professor is seen by many professional drummers as one of the best. The edge at his best isn't in the same class Lifeson

    I actually like some of U2's music. But those guys are a bunch of aholes. I always think to myself who could I sit down with and have a beer. Its sure isn't the edge...

    Oh no you didn't!

    I can't change your mind. You like what you like but neither band sucks. I saw Pert do a 20min drum solo. It was Awesome. Rush has so many great songs. Now I will say Bono went off the deep end after Rattle and Hum but that CD and a lot of the stuff pre Rattle and Hum is pretty dang good.
    Which bands do you consider NOT to suck?

    Papa Roach, FFDP, and Seether are among my favorites.

    I'd never heard of Pert because I don't listen to them. So I went and read a bunch about him, seems he was a pretty good drummer. ;)
