While I was never a big U2 fan I always liked them and found Bonos activism highly respectable. At first I though they gave the album away out of pride and the urge for their music to be heard and respected. then I heard about the $100 million dollars and was repulsed. Perhaps they are completely out of touch with the reality of the music industry anymore but many bands offer thier music on soiundcloud or YouTube for free becuase they simply want it to heard and they know they wont make money selling it anyway. Gone are the days when bands could get signed to a major label and become become wealthy. Nowadays most musicians have to constantly tour, sell merchandise, promote themselves, give music lessons, and raise funds simply to support themselves. It appears as if U2 made the album not for the love of music but for a fortune that they don’t need or deserve. No matter how good or bad the record is its irrelevant. U2 was part of an amazing era of music where bands like REM, INXS, and Oasis were able to make music they loved, become known worldwide and even get rich without compromising their integrity. those day are gone and Sadly U2 just killed thier legacy and showed how pathetic the corporate record industry has become. They should take that $100 million and invest it in bands with kickstarter campaigns that will never have the opportunity that U2 had.

"The people who dragged us into a war against Iraq and Libya want to drag us into a war against Syria as a run up to war against Iran.
This is part of a long term strategy by Neo-Conservatives who I heard openly planning and promoting this madness to Congress throughout the past two decades.
America’s decision makers must be very careful not to be suckered again (and again) into more wars.
Our intervention in Iraq destroyed that country’s defenses and helped to create ISIS. An attack on Syria would strengthen ISIS.
It’s time to end US interventions. It’s time to take care of things here at home.” — Dennis Kucinich
