If you like u2...

I know no band out there could be like U2. But I wanted to broaded my tastes a tad (if only to appricate how good U2 is again). So any suggestions?

Out of all the great Canadian acts you had to choose those two?

Unfortunatly even though I like other bands there is only one band I love and that one is U2...guess it has to do with the emotion and the constant outpouring of excellent music.

Same here, I've given up on listening and trying out other bands. Only U2 does it for me..

That is sad I think, considering the many great artists that are making music.

So indeed, check out the Just The Bang And The Clatter forum (which is a subforum of Lemonade Stand and where I think this thread belongs) and broaden those horizons.

BTW, artists that need a mention also include Elvis Costello and Urban Dance Squad.

Why...just because other bands nowadays don't have the same effect on me as U2? I find most of the stuff on the radio these days bland and boring, that’s why I listen to U2. I do have cd's other than just U2 such as Inxs and New order - Back in the days when super groups were around. Radiohead, Limp biscuit, coldplay don't do it for me (except for clocks). I'll stick with U2 thanks, unless a better group comes along

I agree with what Marty is saying.

There are much better bands than Limp Bizkit and Coldplay but you probably won't find them if you only listen to a popular music station that churns out the same garbage day after day. Maybe it's a silly suggestion, but, have you ever thought that bands who aren't releasing songs nowadays or who have broken up still have great songs and that you can still listen to them? People have given some great suggestions in this thread and there are some real passionate and enthusiastic music lovers on this site who are always recommending new albums/ bands to check out.
