101.9 RXP Listeners' Favorites - 20 U2 Songs

Since 101.9 is the only good rock station left in NYC, I had them on all this past weekend. They counted down the top 1019 songs as voted by their listeners. People could vote for any 20 songs they wanted, except they all had to be by different artists. This has to be one of the best fan-centered lists I've seen in a while.

There's 20 U2 songs on this complete list and only a few of them are hits. Surprises that made the list were God Part 2, Zoo Station, and Red Hill Mining Town.

The whole list can be found here.
