Bono explained that the rock band - which was established in 1976 - "sounded incredible" at the time, but he is not a fan of his vocal style.
"I find the voice very strange and not macho," he continued. "And my Irish macho was kind of strained by that."
The One singer insisted that he had only become a real "singer" in recent years, as the band did not know much about music theory when they began playing together in Dublin.
"I was singing out of my body because I wasn't thinking about singing. That's the thing: We didn't know a lot about music. We were making it up," he concluded. "When you don't have music theory at that level, you write your own."
