U2 are a rock band from Dublin, Ireland. The group consists of Bono (vocals and guitar), The Edge (guitar, keyboards, and vocals), Adam Clayton (bass guitar), and Larry Mullen, Jr. (drums and percussion). The band formed at Mount Temple secondary school in 1976 when the members were teenagers with limited musical proficiency. Within four years, they signed to Island Records and released their debut album "Boy". By the mid-1980s, they had become a top international act. They were more successful as a live act than they were at selling records, until their 1987 album "The Joshua Tree", which, according to Rolling Stone, elevated the band's stature "from heroes to superstars".
