Where were you when you first heard U2? Was it in the late '70s, when they were called The Hype? Or how about at Live Aid in 1985, with a performance only Freddie Mercury could rival? Maybe it was in 2014, when their new album was uploaded onto iPhones worldwide. Truth is, the boys have stood the test of time.
The band formed as schoolboys in 1976, and have led a career spanning five decades. However, it now seems they could be calling it quits. On November 13, Bono reportedly announced the band would be "going away now." In case they do, let's revisit U2's highlights with this informative gallery.
