U2 is actually my 2nd favorite band, with Pearl Jam taking the cake.
Radiohead firmly holds the 3rd spot.

I don't know... maybe The Beatles, or even Oasis and Radiohead...

Probably Bruce Springsteen, he was my favorite for a number of years before I searched for more U2.

A few years ago, I would have easily said REM. Now, probably the Beatles. Maybe Springsteen.

Oasis In fact at the moment I don't think U2 are my favourite band...I think I just need a break from hearing U2 stuff.

and Matt Bellamy is absolutely gorgeous.
Mine would be Muse too I saw them in November and it was just incredible.... (and in June! Wembley Stadium!! )

(no pun intended)

I guess Springsteen.

The Beatles or David Bowie.

I'm leaning more towards Bowie at this point.

QFT!

R.E.M. still has potential for greatness though, they just haven't showed much of it since Up. Hopefully the next album will return to their mid-90's sound, kind of like I'm Gonna DJ predicts. I must say though that their Around The Sun Tour was freaking amazing, even if the album it was supporting wasn't.

The song Around The Sun opened the show I saw, and that was really incredible, and among the usual standards, they still rocked Get Up, Maps And Legends, Finest Worksong, What's the Frequency Kenneth...etc. But the Highlight of the show was definitely I've Been High, as strange as that sounds.

So, yeah, I think their next album could bring them back in a big way, but unfortunately for them Radiohead next album could potentially be their biggest yet too so...

But yeah, that's a long way of saying I totally agree.

Pearl Jam would be my favorite after U2. I also dig The Beatles and Pink Floyd.
