U2 have launched their own radio station, but not every member of the iconic band are happy about it.

U2X Radio is a satellite station that will play albums and interviews from the band 24 hours a day, seven days a week, according to The Irish Mirror.

Drummer Larry Mullen told the paper: “It all sounds exhausting to me but if people really want to listen to us for 24 hours a day, this is the way to do it.”

The band members are set to present on the station regularly to provide new content for fans.

Bassist Adam Clayton said: “I’m not entirely sure what this is but what it isn’t is an opportunity to hear some bass solos… U2 24/7.”

“Welcome to the last 43 years of my life.”

Bono chimed in on a more positive note, saying: “Generally when I open my mouth people prefer if I’m singing, but on U2X RADIO, maybe they’ll forgive me the odd interruption.”

The Edge added: “So I get to sit around having a laugh with my musician friends and playing our favorite music.

“As I always say, I have the best job in the world!”

The show will be streamed through the SiriusXM channel.
