Does he suck? update

As I hoped, Bono has sparked a decent debate thus far. The vote is 9 to 7 in favor of Not suck, which should surprise anyone whose knowledge of Bono is based solely on this picture.

But it's early, and it's close. (I also haven't voted yet, so it might be closer than you think.)

Not Suck's lead adheres to Under 30 tradition. For some reason, you people seem unwilling to pull the Suck trigger. However, Bono could potentially draw the biggest Suck vote we have ever seen, so we'll see.

Some things to keep in mind for Not suck: U2's latest album has sold 3 million copies and just re-entered the Billboard top 50 more than a year after it was released. Not bad for a band well into its 40s. Plus, Bono co-wrote "One," one of the great songs of the past 20 years, along with "New Year's Day," "Where the Streets Have No Name" and "Beautiful Day."

Some things to keep in mind for Suck: Just look at this picture.

Remember to vote and vote often. Polls are open until NOON FRIDAY.

I'm about 3-5 years younger than the average Bono loving age. My older siblings and their friends were big fans. There was a point in my life where I would have said that I never want to hear anything by U2 ever again, but I got over that. So, not suck.
