Bono, Bono, Bono — when are gonna learn, man?

The U2 frontman, who is no stranger to a good controversy, has caused a stir yet again by referring to modern music as "very girly". 

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Bono stated that it's become difficult for men to channel their repressed anger into music as it's now just too feminine. He said:

"I think music has gotten very girly. And there are some good things about that, but hip-hop is the only place for young male anger at the moment — and that's not good."

Needless to say, the people of Twitter were not best pleased.

So, yeah, folks are less than impressed with the rocker.

But what do you think? Were his comments unfair or is this just another case of Bono bashing? Give us your thoughts in the comments.
