THEY ARE one of the biggest bands on the planet and arguably Ireland's greatest ever musical export.
The unprecedented success U2 have enjoyed was always likely to result in a bit of ribbing though, especially when you have Bono as your lead singer and a fella calling himself The Edge on guitar.
And regardless of what you think of the band or their music, there is one thing we can all agree on: some of these U2 jokes are great craic.
9. Jesus and Bono
Q: What's the difference between Jesus Christ and Bono?
A: Jesus doesn't walk around thinking he's Bono.
8. Meeting God
Q: What did Bono say to God when he first arrived in heaven?
A: I believe you are sitting in my chair.
7. Falling Down
Q: Why did Bono fall off the stage?
A: He was too close to The Edge.
6. Knock, Knock...
UNO! DOS! TRES! CATORCE!
5. The Law
Q: What kind of lawyers praise U2?
A: Pro Bono lawyers.
4. Clap Your Hands
U2 are playing live when, in between songs, Bono starts solemnly clapping before pronouncing "every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa starves to death".
A wag in the crowd shouts "stop f***ing clapping then!".
3. Changing A Lightbulb
Q: How many members of U2 does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: One. Bono holds the bulb and the world revolves around him.
2. The U2 Sat Nav
Q: Did you hear about the family with the U2 Sat Nav?

1. Their Name
