"Forget about a bad-hair day, I was having a bad-hair life. I look at pictures from that period and I am the Prince of Mullet, and the only thing that's keeping that mullet away from pop history is a hat designed for a taller man. There's still people who can't like us because of that hair-do."
- Bono on the 80s
In September 1976, Larry Mullen, Jr. posted a notice on Mount Temple Comprehensive School's bulletin board to form a band. With seven responses to Larry's note, the band which were known at the time as The Hype, The Larry Mullen Band, Feedback and later U2 is whittled down to four as seen from 1980's debut Boy to the current day.
