Originally posted by podiumboy:There is a very large swath of people who only associate U2 with the SOI “scandal”. People who would otherwise just think “yeah they’re an old band that had some good songs”. People have held onto that shit. Between SOI scandal and the misconception that U2 are tax dodgers, the public’s opinion of them is pretty tainted.
Anyone who denies the negative impact it has had on their overall aesthetic is in denial themselves.

Rattle and Hum, Pop/mart, Spiderman musical were all bigger fiascos.It just feels worse because its fresh/er on the timeline and the band is ageing. Dont equate Bono hate with the rest of the band.
