9 U2 jokes you can't live with or without

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.
