Diversity, or lack thereof

U2 fans are so predictable, aren't they? Everyone just likes the classics, don't they? Let's not be original! Let's not have a diversity of taste! Let's not appreciate the depth of the band's catalogue! Let's all just bow at the altars of songs like One and With Or Without You. The Electric Co.? Who cares! Wild Irish Rose? Never heard of it! Alex Descends Into Hell For A Bottle Of Milk/Korova 1? Just a b-side! Are there even any U2 albums beyond The Joshua Tree, Achtung Baby, and the two Best Of collections? Let's cling to our precious little predictable classictastic selections like the good sheep we are. Bono would be proud as we belt our lungs out to the 730th performance of Pride or the 500th consecutive concert appearance of One and fall asleep during the first performance of Cartoon World in over 25 years.

One band, one opinion, when it's one BAAAAAAA in the fandom.
