No surprise that Bono will be a special guest at Biden’s state of the union. A longtime errand boy & bag man. Well compensated for his duties. pic.twitter.com/ecqaC2hDmt

In other news featuring Bono and his wildly successful band, U2. Fans recently took to the music subreddit to discuss the merits behind U2’s popularity. Holocarst stated: “Three words: The Joshua Tree. This album unites generations. At my last ever week of school, our awesome Physics teacher invited the whole class to a BBQ at his home and later that evening some of us hung out with I’m in his living room, drinking some beers. A classmate of mine was looking through our teacher’s LP collection and stopped at TJT. I saw him marveling at it and I said: ‘Dude, put that on’. None of us 3 knew beforehand that the other liked U2. So we spent the rest of the evening getting drunk without the teacher listening to ‘Streets have no name’, ‘Still haven’t found what I’m looking for’, ‘With or without you’, ‘Gods Country’, etc. Such a good album.”
Bono ‘replacement’ new female U2 singer revealed. Whereas another redditor replied: “Remember that music is subjective and your opinion does not equal fact. Whatever you think about the Edge, he managed to create an instantly recognizable sound and style that resonates with millions of people around the world has influenced probably hundreds of later guitarists and has written or co-written many songs that will stand the test of time in the same way that the Beatles or the Who managed to do. You can’t have a 30-year career in music and chalk it up to just “marketing” or “people with rotten taste.” That’s why so many musicians don’t have careers anymore, the test of time weeds them out.”
The user continued: “It also bears mention that if you don’t like U2’s music that’s your business, but there are millions of others who do, U2 has had a lot of influence on the world of music, and even if you don’t like them, if you’re at all reasonable and honest you have to admit at least that much. Rolling Stone, for example, includes 5 U2 albums in their 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, as well as including 6 U2 songs in their 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.”
