Stories For Boys

This 1980 U2 clip is most notable for John McKenna's over the top intro: "a band for the future, the 80s or 90s, who knows?"

There are a bunch of u-tubes of early U2, and they had many different influences before they found their signature bombastic "U2 sound". This song from 1978 sounds like a punk Bay City Rollers and they sound like Bowie in this one from 1979. I think they were a lot more interesting before they became famous.
