U2 is my number 1 although that tends to change between albums and tours.
I thought this guy was your favorite:

U2 is by far my favorite band, but i've been lucky enough to discover tons of bands in the last 5 years. so let's just say that i love LOTS of music, but U2 will always hold the top pedestal.

Second favorite. The Police are my favorite and probably always will be.

however, i'll go months without listening to them. lots of other music will rise to the top of my playlist for a while. i'll become obsessed with other bands at different points, and i also have a deep love for several other bands as well.

but there's an endurance to my relationship with U2 that no other band can touch.
Most of these words could have come right out of my own brain.

U2 and REM jockeyed for my #1 slot for years, although now REM has fallen way behind. Right now it's U2 as my all-time favorite band, with Bruce Springsteen coming up really close behind them.

I'll go long stretches with only random listens to U2 songs, while I obsess with other bands/singers. My Bruce obsession is relatively new.

U2 is my favorite. Competitors like Springsteen, Radiohead, and Bowie are great, but I will never know as much about a band as I do U2. Their live stuff is what does it for me. No other band (not even Bruce) captures me with their live stuff like U2 does.

if someone asked me who I liked, U2 would be said within top three of bands/artists.

I know this is not the exact answer you are looking for, but it will fuking do you because it saves me having my butt slapped for not being completely upfront on a question that makes or breaks bonds within the scenerio it has delieverd upon us all.

thank you.

i can't even imagine owning anything over 5 bootlegs for any other band. i own at least 100 U2 bootlegs.

It also means that you must really and truly and for sure and definitely come to Chicago.

4 and something years since I was introduced to music (good music) by U2. Listened to a lot of stuff since then, but they're still number 1.

These days, U2 probably aren't even in my top 15 or 20 still-going bands. They're not at the top of my BEST EVAR list, either, but they're close. Something like this, I suppose...

1) The Beatles
2) U2
3) The Velvet Underground
4) Radiohead
5) Super Furry Animals
6) Talking Heads

And I don't really feel like parsing out the rest of it.
