I like different artists in different ways, I tend not to compete Springsteen, Dylan, Young, Morrisey , Buckley, Costello, Bowie , Bright Eyes against U2...cause I lump them into the singer/songwriter category ...but when I'm listening to Radiohead, Police, Velvet Underground, Smiths, REM, Wilco, Mars Volta etc.. ...at the moment I like it more than U2. The truth is I usually forget I like U2 so much or even why I like them...cause I honestly don't listen to them everyday or even every week...I've gone months and months without putting their music on...but when I do...it all comes back and then I wonder why I hadnt heard them in so long...and then the cycle continues again.

U2 is my favourite band by a mile. Like, I love them so much they're not even my favourite band, they're a step beyond my favourite band. They're a part of who I am or something.

But other than U2 I'm extra into Radiohead, Alien Ant Farm, Dredg, and Bright Eyes.

My favorites include - Pete Yorn, Garbage, Alice in Chains, Cake, Coldplay, Counting Crows, Jeff Buckley, the Pogues, and Radiohead off the top of my head. I havent really been listening to too much U2 lately.

same here actually. i dont class them as one of my favourite bands anymore as they are way more than that, and no one really comes close.
But i do like bob dylan, the beatles, nirvana, the clash, madonna, kate bush, the sex pistols, the eurythmics alot. Just not in the same way as u2.
