If there was no U2...

If U2 didn't exist, what would your favourite band be? I'm interested to find out who people's 2nd favourite band are.


Mine would definately be MUSE. This was sealed last night seeing them live. They have SUCH HUGE stage presence, and have the ability, like U2, to make songs sound even better live than they do on the album. They could easily be one of the biggest live bands in the world today!
and Matt Bellamy is absolutely gorgeous.

Definitely Radiohead, assuming U2's nonexisting doesn't have a Back to the Future-esque history changing effect on things.

Actually, I think Radiohead might actually have a shot at overtaking U2 as my number 1. But that all depends on just HOW amazing LP7 is, and it's subsequent tour...which will be mindblowing of course.

Well... technically, U2 aren't my #1 favorite band of all time. I just happen to visit a message board dedicated to them. LOL! I enjoy my favorite bands equally, I guess. My top 3, though, would be U2, The Police and probably Pearl Jam.

I absolutely love U2 but they're not my favorite band... so I guess that if there was no U2 my favourite bands (nowadays) would still be Pearl Jam, Muse and Oasis.

if it has to be bands that still exist:

radiohead without any contest.

10-15 years ago it would have been r.e.m.

Muse definately... In fact I can't chose between them and U2, it depends on my mood at the moment.

If there was no Muse and no U2 I don't know... I like a lot of bands so maybe I would have no favourite... It would be a mix of The Arcade Fire, Franz Ferdinand and maybe Queen... Weird combination...

I don't have a favourite band.

I'd say U2, Travis and Yann Tiersen are my top bands/artists but I can't pick a favourite.

Slopsy, Matt Bellamy was voted ugliest man a few years ago here. I remember a girl I knew who loved him being devastated at the news.

No U2.....I really don't know what I have would have done. They have gotten me through some of the roughest and best times of my life. I guess I would be missing a piece of me since I've been with them in the beginning. I piece of me would be gone.

(no pun intended)

King Of Leon right now, especially if this new album is as good as they say it is.
