U2 influenced songs/music

I have been looking for some cool songs that sound like U2. Ryan Adams "So Alive" + Coldplay "Clocks." are two that come to mind. Any others??

When Hawksley Workman's "Anger as Beauty" first came on the radio, I thought it was new U2 that I had magically not heard about.

I think it's cause he sounds so damn much like Bono for parts of the song.

Don't know if I'd say they were "influenced" by U2, but Crowded House's "Skin Feeling" sounds a bit like an early 90s U2 song.

Perhaps that's one reason why I like it so much ...

I downloaded this live version of 'Hyperballad' the other day

and I thought the drumming resembled 'Streets' a bit

probably just mere coincidence though

U2 or not?

I think coldplay's chris martin tries to emulate U2 in may of his songs.
