This is a Rejection Letter U2 Got From a Record Label Back in 1979



We’ve all been rejected at some point in our lives. Some of us choose to let it get to us and some use that to fuel our fire for attaining success. Take WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton for example, who at one point was turned down for job positions at Facebook and Twitter, is now on the Forbes’ billionaire list.

A tweet from UberFacts has been circulating recently of a rejection letter that the band U2 receive back in 1979. You can see the letter below:

The letter reads:

Dear Mr. Hewson,

Thank you for submitting your tape of ‘U2’ to RSO, we have listened with careful consideration, but feel it is not suitable for us at present.


We wish you luck with your future career.

Yours sincerely,

Alexander Sinclair

The letter is made out to “Mr. Hewson”, who is now known as “Bono” to the rest of the world. Also, in case you guys don’t know, U2 has now sold more than 150 million records, which places them amongst the best-selling artists in history. Also, Forbes estimates that the band has made $78 million between May 2011 and May 2012, this makes them the fourth-highest-paid musical artist in the 2012 year.
