"All the Dublin bands seem to have to measure themselves up to U2. It’s like a ritual display of patricide when they start slagging you off. God bless them. They have to put up with being called the new U2, and I don’t blame them. I don’t blame them objecting to having that hung around their necks. The only time criticism stings is when it’s from people who are very smart, or people who you respect. And that, unfortunately, isn’t as common as the other kind."
- Bono, 1992
