They are now. They weren't back when Bono wasn't an attention-hungry political twerp, several decades ago. "Sunday Bloody Sunday" was strong stuff. Back then it meant something - now, a U2 single means *kerching*.
If you want a band who are truly, unmitigatedly, entirely worthless hype, you need look no further than the U2-wannabe's that are Coldplay.
