to be honest...it should be more difficult for average guys to play u2's songs...this all makes their musical skill look pretty easy to imitate...

LOL...

I can appreciate the effort, but not digging it. 2 each their own.

Keyboard player looks like he's having an epileptic seizure of some sort...

I don't U2 have ever been lauded for how difficult their songs are to play.

Who wants a cover of a song that came out 1.5 milliseconds ago?

U2 songs are easy to cover. They're just next to impossible to cover well.

I think the singer's got a moderately decent voice, but other than that.....eh.
Noticed he doesn't say "sexy boots" even once, lol.
And the "let me in the sound" part is horrendously bad.

Just...wow.

Yes, because YouTube ratings are the definitive answer of how good anything is.

This sounds like how a Kidz Bop version would turn out if they had gone through puberty first.

Of course you're going to get better ratings if you're an unknown band, only your friends vote. They aren't big enough to have haters yet...

The cover still sucks. Sorry Gherman if this is your band.

I feel as if this man's voice has been digitally altered to help him sound "better." U2 for the WIN! YES!
