U2 are a rock band from Dublin, Ireland.

The band consists of members.

Bono (vocals and guitar)
The Edge (guitar, keyboards, and vocals)
Adam Clayton (bass guitar)
Larry Mullen, Jr. (drums and percussion)

The band formed in 1976 when the members were teenagers with limited musical proficiency.

By the mid-1980s, however, the band had become a top international act, noted for their anthemic sound, Bono's impassioned vocals, and The Edge's textural guitar playing.

Their success as a live act was greater than their success at selling records until their 1987 album The Joshua Tree increased the band's stature "from heroes to superstars," according to Rolling Stone.

U2 have sold more than 140 million albums worldwide and have won 22 Grammy Awards.

Rolling Stone magazine listed U2 at #22 in its list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.
