Quotes:

This is the song Charles Manson stole from the Beatles. We're stealing it back.
-Bono just before performing "Helter Skelter".
Submitted by: Brian Kelly
As a rock star, I have two instincts, I want to have fun, and I want to change the world. I have a chance to do both.
- Bono

It's so sweet, I feel like my teeth are rotting when I listen to the radio.
- Bono

Music can change the world because it can change people.
- Bono

Rock 'n' roll is ridiculous. It's absurd. In the past, U2 was trying to duck that. Now we're wrapping our arms around it and giving it a great big kiss.
- Bono

To be one, to be united is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.
- Bono

U2 is an original species... there are colours and feelings and emotional terrain that we occupy that is ours and ours alone.
- Bono

We thought that we had the answers, it was the questions we had wrong.
- Bono

The less you know, the more you believe.
- Bono

Band Name Origins:

  • There's also another coincidence about the name on what many people forget (Even the fans sometimes) In Berlin, there's a railway line that says "U-2", near the "Zoo Station". Submitted by: Anon
  • It's named after the U-2 spy plane and they DID pick it off a list, just not with those other choices. Larry Mullen's father (It was either Larry Mullen or Adam Clayton; probably Larry Mullen) was a pilot so he knew about U-2 planes. It's in the U2 book. Submitted by: yeah yeha yeah

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Numb"
The Funny Lyrics:
Don't travel by train
Don't eat
Don't spill
Don't piss down the drain
Don't make a will
Why They're Funny:
This whole song doesn't make any sense whatsoever, but IMHO this is the best line in the whole song. I laugh every time I hear it.
Submitted by: Moosehead
"The Ground Beneath Her Feet"
The Funny Lyrics:
Go lightly down your darkened way
Go lightly underground
I'll be down there in another day
Why They're Funny:
This song is supposed to be such an innocent love song, but I was singing along to these lines and I stopped and laughed uncontrollably when I realized what I was singing! (Hint: "darkened way"- and a man is singing this to a woman.)
Submitted by: Amanda
There are additional U2 Funny lyrics available.

Repetitive Song Lyrics:

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Sweetest Thing"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Eternal fire, she turned me to straw
Why They're Nonsensical:
Someone turned Bono to straw!? It does not make sense at all. Last time I checked, Bono doesn't look much like a piece of straw. And where does "eternal fire" fall into context here?
Submitted by: Dude
"Dirty Day"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I don't know you, and you don't know the half of it.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Well, Bono, since I haven't met you, of course I don't know you. As for knowing the half of it, maybe I know more than you think I do, since you don't know me, either.
Submitted by: Mazotti
There are additional U2 nonsensical lyrics available.

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"Love And Peace Or Else"
The Insincere Lyrics:
Lay down all your Abrahams sons
Why They're Insincere:
Now what does this mean? I know that we are all, according to the Bible, Abraham's sons and daughters, but it will always have that connotation of Isaac. It means either a. sacrifice all your sons because it is the will of God or else it means b. don't sacrifice all your sons even if it is the will of God. Now this is in contradiction with what U2 is supposedly all about. They preach about being so holy and following God and everything, yet they also preach for peace. So no matter how you look at this lyric (and I'm always going to see 'lay down' in the way it is used towards killing animals) it goes against their supposed beliefs, meaning they don't really think about what they say they just say it cause it sounds cool.

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Out Of Control"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Monday morning eighteen years of dawning
I say how long, you say how long
And it was one dull morning
Woke the world with bawling
And one day I'll die
The choice will not be mine
Why They're Misrhymed:
This song has so many lyrics that don't rhyme! Even though it's a great song and I love it, I think Bono could have done a better job rhyming the lyrics.
Submitted by: CRA-Z-W-U2
"Vertigo"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
Uno, Dos, Tres, Catorce!
Why They're Misrhymed:
Personally, I don't think these A) ryhme, or B) make sense. Okay, Uno, dos, tres. But Catorce is Spanish and translates to: one, two, three, fourteen. One word: Why?
Submitted by: Elandili
There are additional U2 misrhymed lyrics available.

Insulting Song Lyrics:

"The Ground Beneath Her Feet"
The Insulting Lyrics:
Go lightly down your darkened way
Why They're Insulting:
In the context of the song, this line's dirty meaning becomes a bit obvious. So even though this is supposed to be a sweet love song, suddenly you have Bono telling this girl to go f**k herself.
Submitted by: Amanda
 

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Pride in the Name of Love"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Early morning, April four,
shot rings out in the Memphis sky.
Why They're Inappropriate:
Technically, it occurred in the evening, during the 6 p.m. hour, local time. Therefore it would be more appropriate to say "Early evening." However, according to Wikopedia, Bono has acknowledged the mistake, and when he performs the song live, he often uses "evening" instead of "morning" (but not always!).
Submitted by: Gus
"Sunday Bloody Sunday"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Broken bottles under children's feet
Why They're Inappropriate:
I just don't get it! I never understood it since I first heard the song, in fact. This song is supposed to be about the wars in northern Ireland, and bottles have nothing at all to do with war! Broken bottles? It makes no sense with the song.
Submitted by: Stevo
There are additional U2 inappropriate lyrics available.

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Even Better Than the Real Thing"
The Dirty Lyrics:
My head is somewhere in between
Why They're Dirty:
In between WHAT? Guess Bono's dirtier than we thought.
Submitted by: Amanda
"One"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth
Why They're Dirty:
In the context of the song it's not that bad but I think it is one of the many funny oral sex references in the album.

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"Achtung Baby liner pictures"
One of the many pictures in the album booklet shows bassist Adam Clayton standing nude. His privates are covered up by an "X" or a shamrock (U2 is an Irish band). Get 2 copies of the classic "Achtung Baby" album and you may see the difference.

Hidden Tracks:

"Alarm sound"
Many copies of their 1993 album Zooropa have an alarm sound hidden at the end. If you play the last track (track 10 "The Wanderer") and wait for it to finish at about 4:41, silence follows and the hidden alarm sound begins at 5:15 and the entire track finishes at 5:41. This alarm sound is apparently the same sound that radio DJs hear after there has been too much dead air in the studio. Interestingly, they later hid one second of the same sound as an intro to an easter egg of the song 'Elevation' on their Elevation 2001 DVD, and another warning sound all together (this one identifable as an air drill siren) features an an easter egg on the Zoo TV: Live from Sydney DVD (the DVD of a performance on Zooropa's associated tour).

Hidden Messages:

"Rattle and Hum"
I've already posted about the hidden message on How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, but on the original LP of Rattle and Hum there is a hiden message. Look on the inner groove on side 1, you will find the words etched "We Love You A.L.K.", ALK is Anne Louise Kelly, the band's production manager.
Submitted by: Lee
"How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb"
If you look at the bottom of the CD (the silver side) and you look near the middle, you will find the words "Miss You Sugar" (as well as the Universal logos). The reason it says "Miss You Sugar" i do not know - but certian copies of the band's earlier album 'Pop' feature a similar message in the same place that read "4UALKXXXX" (meaning For You Anne Louise Kelly")
Submitted by: Lee

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Lyrics with debatable meanings"
U2 claim that all their songs are about politics and religion. That's definitely true of some of their songs, but they have others that seem dirty, hard to understand, or both, like "Vertigo" and "Elevation".
Submitted by: Amanda
"Not So Overt Hymn"
Both times I have seen these Irish rockers in concert they always played their #1 hit "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For". That song doesn't mention Jesus Christ by name but the lyrics are peppered with references to Him (ex: "Kingdom Come", and "carried the cross and all the shame", etc.). The ENTIRE audience sings all the words and waves their hands in unison. This crowd includes Christians as well as Jews, Muslims, people of other religions and even agnostics and atheists. A pretty unique and ironic situation to see : )
