Bands I like better than U2? Hmmm... The list isn't that long, but U2 definitely dropped a couple spots thanks to HTDAAB.

Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits + his solo work)
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Red Hot Chili Peppers
and possibly Iron Maiden, but I think Maiden is about on par with U2 for me at the moment.

Really, though... Mark Knopfler's talent leaves pretty much everyone except Queen in the dust imho.

plus the guitarists JOE SATRIANI and STEVE VAI

So many??

No, because U2 are in a special place which can't be reached

U2 is deep in my heart for the long haul, and the rest of this list can change from time to time. Right now, I'm conjuring ones with similar sustainability on the playlist of my life.

The Beatles
The Doors
A Perfect Circle
The Flaming Lips
Stand up to rock stars!

I actually don't even listen to U2 records anymore but I'm always happy to hear them when they come on (except the other day I was actually annoyed when Vertigo came on and I changed channels ) and I would still drive across many states, or get on an airplane, and stand in line from the crack of dawn for a good GA spot to see them, and I'll always love them.

But musically, I rank Radiohead, Wilco and Sigur Ros above them at the moment because I still listen to every one of their records a lot.

I can only put it in perspective of pre U2:

Led Zepelin
The Moody Blues
Pink Floyd
Bruce Springstein
Crosby Stills Nash & Young
Neil Young
The Rolling Stones

All this,
Then one day I heard... New Years Day..
end of story for favorite band, ever.

Even with the multitude of music I've love from then to now.
still, U2 is my #1 favorite
