    Of course they do, their popularity is waning and their singles don't chart anymore.

    It didn't exactly work for 50 Cent, and it only worked for the Beatles because they're half dead, disbanded, and legends.

    U2 should be happy they got their special edition iPod Videos.

    One of the most disappointing group of poser sell outs of my generation, but...I'd buy a U2 Rockband or Guitar Hero. They're a bunch of bozos, boners, Bonos, but so much of their early music is still great. [​IMG]

    I'm assuming either a platformer or a first person shooter.

    U2 Rock Band wouldn't be terrible at all, but there's a lot of other bands I would rather have (Rock Band: Rush would literally make my penis explode from hardness. And not like orgasm explosion, I mean like explosive explosion).

    Could be cool if you have to deflate Bono´s ego by bitch slapping him. Otherwise, meh.

    Never realized there was so much U2 hate. They aren't the best band ever by any means, but I do like them a bit. Their new stuff isn't even that bad, which usually isn't the case for bands this old.

    this, right here, makes me laugh hard.

    U2 makes great music, and I haven't heard many of there more recent songs, but from the album How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb, I can say they've done great throughout their career, with the exception of Pop, which was an attempt to dabble in another genre, and try a new sound. Even Duran Duran did this before the turn of the millennium.

    I can honestly say it's great they're getting their own game, although it doesn't matter to me whether they do or not.

    I'm not the biggest U2 fan, but I think they would be good for a band game.

    Are they big in Canada or something? They're pretty much disliked and small time (At least now, anyway. You never hear about them anymore) everywhere else.

    If you don't know the 80's music in general that well, you probably won't know U2, not by their newer stuff. How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb was relatively popular, though.

    They were very big in the 80's, that's pretty much it.
