Is U2 the best rock band in the world?
No! Why would you think that a band with such a broad political agenda would be the best band in the world? Same as Sinead O'Connor. Name more than 3 songs off the top of you head that they sing. I'll bet 90% of people cannot

It's anyone's guess as it all comes down to personal opinion.
The Wanted, Rhianna, Green Day and Skilet I don't think Rhianna is a rock band and as for the best I would say that is for you to decide. IMO its Avenged Sevenfold but your o…pinion maybe different. So go out and listen to music and who knows what you will find.
No, they are Irish no there from dublin Ireland ,which is not part of Britain The band met when all four were in Ireland where they all grew up. However two of the members… (The Edge and Adam Clayton) were born in the UK and are British nationals hence the confusion. They also don't identify with many aspects of Irish culture and history and distance themselves from it somewhat (hence the song Sunday Bloody Sunday which criticises the violence on both sides of the Northern Ireland conflict rather than taking sides). Adam Clayton and The Edge are Irish and hold Irish passports and do not regard themselves as British nationals. U2 do indeed identify themselves with Irish culture and make contributions to Irish art and have collaborated with many Irish musicians in the past. Above information is wishful thinking Im afraid although correct in saying that they support the peace process in the six counties.
The Rolling Stones by far. Longevity. Talent. Income. Record setting in all categories.
They formed in 1976. So... that makes the band 35 years old as of 2011
It would have to be either Led Zep or Queen. But, then again there would be no Zep or Queen without the Beatles. It is a draw between The Beatles, Led Zep, and Queen. Answe…r. being the first does not make you the best. it would have to be Queen I agree! My personal favorite is Queen! I just didn't want to exclude the Beatles.
In my opinion, The Queens of the Stone Age. In my opinion, Avenged Sevenfold. Really though, opinions of the best rock bands in the world vary.
Well the term rock is quite loose! It goes from pop-punk to death metal and all genres in between so going by that logic the best rock band (well their actually screamo but …who cares) are ASKING ALEXANDRIA !!!!! END OF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the beatles The best part about this is that you can judge this yourself. Some say the beatles some say Atreyu, and some say Avenged Sevenfold. This is your taste in music …so you find the greatest band in the world.
September 25, 1976 in Dublin, Ireland.
Yes, the members of U2 are all from Dublin.

U2 was played first by alternative stations. The band crossed-over to the album rock format and to pop stations in the early 1980's. U2 also became a top pop group by 1987, an…d received heavy dance club play at the same time. U2 could not be fit into a single format, and became a multi-format band.
Yes, they are from Ireland.
