artist U2 has covered the most

I was wondering what artist U2 has covered the most? I mean full band versions, no snippets included.

Dylan- Maggies Farm, I Shall Be Released, All Along the Watchtower, Knockin on Heaven's Door

Beatles- Help, Instant Karma

any other contenders?

Instant Karma isn't a Beatles song.

As for the question, I don't know. But I would ask Axver.

The original poster isn't counting snippets though.

Pretty sure that, as far as full covers are concerned, Dylan was the most covered. Or maybe it's just the greatness of TV Gaga Knockin' On Heaven's Door that's blinding me to the truth.

They played a good chunk of Jean Genie at MSG in 2005. Not the whole song, but the whole band did jump in after the Fly. I guess it would probably somewhere in between a snippet and a cover.

They did a full Jean Genie at the Gavin Friday show at Carnegie Hall last year.

Off the top of my head, I've also heard snips from Norwegian Wood and In My Life used.
