“U2 sold out!” It’s something you’ll find in forums a lot, disgruntled fans screaming the band sold out on their punk ideals. Every year. Every album. Every single. A tired argument, really, because in effect, yes, they sold out the minute they decided they wanted to be the biggest bestest baddest band in the world. Which was rather early on in their career. But anyway. Here’s an article that says they really haven’t sold out. Oh yes they ha-haave! Oh no they haven’t! Ad infinitum.
