Rock band U2, and especially lead singer Bono, are pretty damn political.
Bono's longtime philanthropy and activism have made him an honorary knight in the United Kingdom, a Commandeur of the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Order of Arts and Letters), and one of Time Magazine's 2005 Persons of the Year.
But it's his not-so-subtle Sunday night Grammys performance that's drawing attention right now.
The video that aired before the live singing began featured shots of the Statue of Liberty with a child's voice reading part of the famous Emma Lazarus poem engraved on a plaque on the statue's pedestal:
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
