U2 is your favorite band....right??

so I think the majority of the people here would say that U2 is their absolute favorite band, but Im wondering if there is anyone here who is a fan of U2, but likes another band more??

If U2 is NOT your favorite band, tell us what is! or if U2 is your favorite band, what are other bands do you like almost as much?

for me, the only band I like almost as much as U2 is radiohead, but U2 is always the best for me!

How about you?

Formerly. Not anymore though. Not by a long shot. If I have to throw a "favorite" tag out, I'd say Wilco, Radiohead, or the National. But I listen to far too many different artists, each with their own distinct merits, to label a favorite.

If you want to try Wilco, start with Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. If you want to try the National, start with Alligator or Boxer (u2popmofo will heartily endorse the former).

I can see you're a foreigner to this section of the site. I was too at exactly your age. Just the Bang and the Clatter and a lot of the people I've come to know on it have introduced me to a whole lot of great music that has come to be a huge, huge part of my life. So welcome. I hope you find something worth liking here.

And my signature is the cover art of the latest album from one of my other current "favorites," Animal Collective.

thanks impy13!

Im really looking for bands that have a really ambient, electronic, and psychedelic feel to them. Hopefully, people here will have some suggestions.

They used to be the bees knees, I'll admit I did almost worhsip the ground they walked on.

What happened?

I "Grew out" of them, and changed my tastes in music, Last Fm really was the start from me. 3 years ago, I really branched out.

These days I don't think I have one favorite artist. Just a whole damn bunch. I still love U2, its just a bit different these days.

Definitely, I'll never have the kind of emotional connection I have to U2's music to anyone else's... except maybe my own. Plus the larger than life history has them burned into me, I'm obsessed and proud of it.

U2 is my favorite band still releasing music, but the Beatles will probably always be my favorite band in general.

Who is U2?

A lot of us like Shuttlecock here, as has been mentioned. They're pretty sweet, if a bit raunchy for my tastes.

Otherwise, I'm not sure who my favorite "band" is these days... I seem to gravitate to singular artists more frequently. Fleet Foxes has been rather effectively melting my brain recently though.

I try to avoid saying what my favourite band is, I prefer to say I like a bunch of bands a whole lot. I'd say U2 would be one of them, though if I had to rank bands, no, they wouldn't be number one.
