Really, it was just a great affirmation to win that competition, even though I've no idea how good we were or what the competition was really like.
But to win at that point was incredibly important for morale and everyone's belief in the whole project. In AprilFeedback played their first gig Between a paying audience at St. Fintan's High School. Shortly thereafter, the band changed their name to "The Hype". The rest of the band was leaning towards the idea of a four-piece ensemble. The remaining four band members returned later in the concert to play original material as U2. Irish magazine Hot Press was influential in shaping U2's future; in addition to being one of their earliest allies, the publication's journalist Bill Graham introduced the band to Paul McGuinnesswho agreed to be their manager in mid The band continued to build their fanbase with performances across Ireland,  the most famous of which were a series of Saturday afternoon shows at Dublin's Dandelion Market in the summer of It was the group's first chart success, selling all 1, copies of its limited edition inch vinyl almost immediately.
The same day, U2 played a show at the 2,seat National Stadium in Dublin as part of an Irish tour. Although it did not chart,  the song was the impetus for the Edge's purchase of a delay effect unitthe Electro-Harmonix Memory Man, which came to define his guitar playing style and had a significant impact on the group's creative output. Released in October Boy received generally positive reviews.
The band faced several challenges in writing their second album, October. On an otherwise successful American leg of the Boy Tour, Bono's briefcase containing in-progress lyrics and musical ideas was lost backstage during a March performance at a nightclub in Portland, Oregon.
October was released in October and contained overtly spiritual themes. Geils Bandincreasing their exposure. Having run out of money and feeling unsupported by their record label, the group committed to improving; Clayton recalled that "there was a firm resolve to come out of the box fighting with the next record".
After the October Tour, U2 decamped to a rented cottage in Howth, where they lived, wrote new songs, and rehearsed for their third album, War. Significant musical breakthroughs were achieved by the Edge in August during a two-week period of independent songwriting, while the other band members vacationed and Bono honeymooned with his wife, Ali.
Lillywhite, who had a policy of not working with an artist more than twice, was convinced by the group to return as their producer for a third time.
War ' s lead single, " New Year's Day ", was released on 1 January On the subsequent War Tour of Europe, the US, and Japan,  the band began to play progressively larger venues, moving from clubs to halls to arenas.
With their record deal with Island Records coming to an end, U2 signed a more lucrative extension in They negotiated the return of the copyrights of their songs, an increase in their royalty rate, and a general improvement in terms, at the expense of a larger initial payment. U2 feared that following the overt rock of the War album and tour, they were in danger of becoming another "shrill", "sloganeering arena-rock band".
We felt we had more dimension than just the next big anything, we had something unique to offer. Their hiring contravened the initial recommendation of Island Records founder Chris Blackwellwho believed that just when the band were about to achieve the highest levels of success, Eno would "bury them under a layer of avant-garde nonsense".
Partly recorded in Slane CastleThe Unforgettable Fire was released in October and was at the time the band's most marked change in direction. Under Lanois' direction, Mullen's drumming became looser, funkier, and more subtle, and Clayton's bass became more subliminal. Much of the Unforgettable Fire Tour moved into indoor arenas as U2 began to win their long battle to build their audience.
Rolling Stonewhich was critical of the album version of "Bad", described its live performance as a "show stopper". In Marcha Rolling Stone cover story called U2 the "Band of the '80s", saying that "for a growing number of rock-and-roll fans, U2 have become the band that matters most, maybe even the only band that matters".
The wild beauty, cultural richness, spiritual vacancy and ferocious violence of America are explored to compelling effect in virtually every aspect of The Joshua Tree —in the title and the cover art, the blues and country borrowings evident in the music Indeed, Bono says that 'dismantling the mythology of America' is an important part of The Joshua Tree ' s artistic objective.
For their fifth album, The Joshua Treethe band wanted to build on The Unforgettable Fire ' s textures, but instead of out-of-focus experimentation, they sought a harder-hitting sound within the limitation of conventional song structures. Rather than distract the band, the tour invigourated their new material. The experience became a central influence on their new music. The Joshua Tree was released in March The album juxtaposes antipathy towards US foreign policy against the group's deep fascination with the country, its open spaces, freedom, and ideals.
U2 became the fourth rock band to be featured on the cover of Time magazine,  which called them "Rock's Hottest Ticket". In Octoberthe group released Rattle and Huma double album and theatrically released documentary film that captured the band's experiences with American roots music on the Joshua Tree Tour. The record featured nine studio tracks and six live U2 performances, including recordings at Sun Studio in Memphis and collaborations with Dylan and B.
Intended as a tribute to American music,  the project received mixed reviews from both film and music critics; one Rolling Stone editor spoke of the album's "excitement", another described it as "misguided and bombastic". In addition, they had grown dissatisfied with their live performances; Mullen recalled, "We were the biggest, but we weren't the best". Buzzwords on this record were trashy, throwaway, dark, sexy, and industrial all good and earnest, polite, sweet, righteous, rockist and linear all bad.
It was good if a song took you on a journey or made you think your hifi was broken, bad if it reminded you of recording studios or U Stung by the criticism of Rattle and Humthe band sought to transform themselves musically.
While Clayton and Mullen preferred a sound similar to U2's previous work, Bono and the Edge were inspired by European industrial music and electronic dance music and advocated a change. Weeks of tension and slow progress nearly prompted the group to break up until they made a breakthrough with the improvised writing of the song " One ". Achtung Baby was released in November The album represented a calculated change in musical and thematic direction for the group; the shift was one of their most dramatic since The Unforgettable Fire.
Commercially and critically, it has been one of the band's most successful albums. It produced five hit singles, including " The Fly ", " Mysterious Ways ", and "One", and it was a crucial part of the band's early s reinvention. In contrast to the austere stage setups of previous U2 tours, Zoo TV was an elaborate multimedia event. It satirised the pervasive nature of television and its blurring of news, entertainment, and home shopping by attempting to instill "sensory overload" in its audience.
Live satellite link-ups to war-torn Sarajevo caused controversy. It was an even greater musical departure for the group, delving further into electronicindustrial, and dance music. Most of the songs were played at least once during the legs of the tour, which visited Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan; half the album's tracks became permanent fixtures in the setlist.
Clayton's issues with alcohol came to a head on the final leg of the Zoo TV Tour. After experiencing a blackoutClayton was unable to perform for the group's 26 November show in Sydney,  which served as the dress rehearsal for a worldwide television broadcast the following night.
Bass guitar technician Stuart Morgan filled in for him, marking the first time a member of U2 had missed a concert since their earliest days. Overall, it tallied 5. Due to his participation and the record's highly experimental nature, the band chose to release it under the moniker "Passengers" to distinguish it from U2's conventional albums. We crossed it on the Passengers record. U2 began work on their next studio album, Popin mid, holding recording sessions with Nellee HooperFloodand Howie B.
The band mixed the contrasting influences of each producer into their music, in particular Howie B's experiences with electronica and dance music. The PopMart Tour commenced in April and was intended as a satire of consumerism. The European leg of the tour featured two highlights. The group's 20 September show in Beneath Emilia was attended by overpeople, which was reported to have set a world record for the largest paying audience for a one-act show.
Following the mixed success of their musical pursuits in the s, U2 sought to simplify their sound; the Edge said that with Popthe group had "taken the deconstruction of the rock 'n' roll band format to its absolute 'nth degree". Released in October of that year, All That You Can't Leave Behind was seen by critics as a "back to basics" album,  on which the group returned to a more mainstream, conventional rock sound. Bono and the Edge said these shows were among their most memorable and emotional performances.
In a tribute to those who died in the September 11 attacks, the victims' names were projected onto a backdrop, and at the end, Bono opened his jacket to reveal an American flag in the lining. U2's — Vertigo Tour was preceded by several complications.
A sudden illness afflicting the Edge's daughter nearly resulted in the tour's cancellation, before the group decided to adjust the tour schedule to accommodate her treatment. The two bands covered the Skids ' song " The Saints Are Coming " during the performance and for a benefit single which reached number one in Australia and throughout Europe. Recording for U2's twelfth album, No Line on the Horizonbegan with producer Rick Rubin inbut the sessions were short-lived and the material was shelved.
Just that joy of playing. No Line on the Horizon was released in Februarymore than four years after How to Dismantle an Atomic Bombmarking the longest gap between albums of the band's career to that point. At feet 50 m tall, it was the largest stage ever constructed. On 25 OctoberU2 set a new US record for single concert attendance for one headline act, performing to 97, people at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. The band suspended work on the album late in to contribute a new song, " Ordinary Love ", to the film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
McGuinness, who had managed the group for over 30 years, was succeeded by Guy Oseary. On 9 SeptemberU2 appeared at an Apple product launch event to make a surprise announcement of their thirteenth studio album, Songs of Innocence. They released it digitally the same day to all iTunes Store customers at no cost,  making it available to over million people in what Apple CEO Tim Cook called "the largest album release of all time".
He suffered fractures of his shoulder blade, humerusorbitand pinky finger,  leading to uncertainty that he would ever be able to play guitar again.
InU2 worked on their next studio album, Songs of Experiencewhich was intended to be a companion piece to Songs of Innocence. U2 toured in to commemorate the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Treewith each show featuring a performance of the entire album.
Songs of Experience was released on 1 December The personal nature of the lyrics reflects a "brush with mortality" that he had during the album's recording. Rahman to promote their December concert in India.
Bono's songwriting exhibits a penchant for social, political, and personal subject matter, while maintaining a grandiosity. In addition, the Edge has described U2 as a fundamentally live band. With their influence, both albums achieved a "diverse texture". In the s, U2 reinvented themselves as they began using synthesisers, distortionand electronic beats derived from noise musicdanceand hip-hop on Achtung Baby Zooropaand Pop.
In the s, U2 returned to more stripped-down rock and pop sounds,  with more conventional rhythms and reduced usage of synthesisers and effects,  "reinvent[ing] themselves as a quality pop band", according to music journalist Chris Charlesworth. So they did. The Edge's style of playing guitar is distinguished by his chiming timbres  echoing notes,  sparse voicings and extensive use of effects units.
The Edge's guitar sound is frequently modulated with a delay set to a dotted eighth note for rhythmic effect. The Edge developed his playing style during his teenage years, partially as a result of him and Mullen trying to accommodate the "eccentric" bass playing of Clayton by being the timekeepers of the band. He said by focusing "on one area of the fretboard [he] was developing a very stylized way of doing something that someone else would play in a normal way".
His Vox AC30 "Top Boost" amplifier housed in a s cabinet is favoured for its "sparkle" tone, and is the basis for his sound both in the studio and live. As a rhythm section, Mullen and Clayton often play the same patterns, giving U2's music a driving,   pulsating beat  that serves as a foundation for the Edge's guitar work.
Adam plays a little behind the beat, waiting till the last moment to slip in, which fits Adam's casual, don't-sweat-it personality.
Mullen's drumming style is influenced by his experience in marching bands during his adolescence,   which helped contribute to the militaristic beats of songs such as " Sunday Bloody Sunday ". As a result, he uses a floor tom to his left to create the effect of a bass drum.
He said, "I couldn't do what most people would consider a normal beat for the song, so I chose alternatives. Clayton's style of bass guitar playing is noted for what instructor Patrick Pfeiffer called "harmonic syncopation ". With this technique, Clayton plays a consistent rhythm that stresses the eighth note of each barbut he "anticipates the harmony by shifting the tonality " before the guitar chords do.
This gives the music a feeling of "forward motion". U2's lyrics are known for their social and political themes, and are often embellished with Christian and spiritual imagery. The first was written about the Troubles in Northern Ireland,  while the last was a tribute to COMADRESthe women whose children were killed or forcibly disappeared at the hands of the Salvadoran government during the country's civil war.
Bono's personal conflicts and turmoil inspired songs like " Mofo ", " Tomorrow " and " Kite ". Daniel Caesar - Best Part feat. Scooby Doo - Where Are You?
