Personally, I believe the original poster should be banned and made to walk through a minefield wearing snow shoes.

I think that the original poster forgot to mention that The White Stripes = a Led Zeppelin version of U2.

And that the Raconteurs = a The White Stripes version of U2.

Wings were the Beatles versions of U2.

Bach was the prehistoric cromagnum-man chant version of U2.

I didn't realise a thread like this would cause so much discord.

well, either he does it gently, or i do it with a far more visceral and highly offensive approach. in the end, the original poster is spared from a much worse verbal lashing, and the culprit - in this case zootlesque - should be congratulated for taking the initiative of preventing a far worse situation from occuring.

That all said, I think calling people "U2 rip offs" is generally a bit harsh. Granted, I'm not greatly familiar with a good amount mentioned, but what I have heard doesn't even strike me as entirely U2. U2 themselves did not create chiming guitars. U2 did not create anthemic choruses. U2 themselves have blatantly shown "influence" from numerous other bands through out their entire career. Given that, are U2 themselves "rip offs"? I personally wouldn't say that, and thus find it completely unfair to label any other band who shows their influences as such either, particularly when those bands have been successful on their own merits.
Agreed, say no more.

The one thing most (not all, but most) of the bands namechecked in the first post have in common, is blandness.

I shudder to think, but grudgingly acknowledge it probably may be so, that U2's great legacy to contemporary bands is blandness.

Since U2 look good and Coldplay look creepy I'd say they're definitely NOT a U2 ripoff.
