button.gif (123 bytes) "When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, U2 - 1997

 
TIMELINE

U2button.gif (123 bytes) Paul "Bono" Hewson, Dave "The Edge" Evans, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen, Jr. U2 came together in Dublin, Ireland in 1976. The band spent the end of the 70s finding their "alternative" niche, gradually rose to rock super-stardom in the 80s, and continued their mastery of rock, pop, alternative fusion into the 90s and beyond. U2 provided rock music with a message - often on politics and religion. With large-scale world tours and successful LP releases, U2 have made their mark as one of the great bands of the century.

The 1970's...

U2button.gif (123 bytes) U2 began in 1976 when 14 year-old Larry Mullen wanted to form a band at his high school in Dublin, the Mount Temple School. Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, and a guy named Dick Evans responded to Larry's ad and they formed a band named 'Feedback.' A year later they changed their name to 'Hype' and Dick Evans left the band. With Evans gone, the name was changed to U2.
button.gif (123 bytes) In 1978, U2 caught a break when they won a talent contest and were approached by a manager. An EP called U2:3 was released and successful in Ireland but the band was not making much headway elsewhere.

At the time, Rolling Stone magazine said of the group: "U2 is talented, charming and potentially (they're all still under 21) exceptional."
