Episode 034: U2 w/ Ryan Nichols (Pop – Songs Of Experience)

In Episode 034, we continue our deep-dive into the history of one of our favorite bands, U2. Once again, we brought on one of our close friends, and U2-expert, Ryan Nichols (@ryannichols7) to help us out. Approaching the band’s history chronologically, we explore how U2 grew into the biggest band in the world, shifted in one of the most extreme manners for a mainstream Rock band, and has spent much of the last 20 years trying to figure out what’s next. We also consider possible ways for U2 to reclaim the status of "The World’s Most Important Band."

Songs featured in this episode are: "Mofo" – Pop (1997), "Kite " – All That You Can’t Leave Behind (2000), "Love & Peace Or Else" – How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb (2004), "Fez/Being Born" – No Line On The Horizon (2009), "This Is Where You Can Reach Me Now" – Songs Of Innocence (2014), "Red Flag Day" – Songs Of Experience (2017).
