(can he go for another Seinfeld reference???)

I say if the true writer doesn't claim it in 24 hours, it's a landrush!

Thank you, thank you.

Sounds very similar, but 409 does sound like Bono singing.

I do think 409 is spongeworthy though

(was that too much, I can never tell, )

[two movie/tv references in one post, amazing]

even more!

I love it! This will go down in U2fan folklore. Soon, everyone will be swearing they knew it wasn't them.

I feel like Britney Spears after the Matt Lauer interview

a little nauseous, bloated, sad, and have an craving for cheetos and budweiser.

It's a great sound. I don't think it's a cover of JD's Transmission...it's too different. I also don't think this is U2 at all in 409. I may be wrong. It really does sound like The Strokes clip, however, and also a lot like The Arcade Fire--it's reminiscent of their song Haiti at certain places.

The music in the Strokes clip is clearly the same, but in the "U2" 409, it really doesn't sound like the same vocals to me and I'm not sure some of the lines sung match up. I'm really confused.

Obviously, U2 and The Strokes wrote songs at the same time that turned out to be the same sound. Go figure.

Maybe Pearl Jam hold the key. They're opening for U2, while The Strokes have been opening for PJ on their current tour.

Also, Pearl Jam are a rock band...U2 are a rock band. The Strokes are from New York...U2 have a song called New York.

The Strokes are U2's youthful alteregos, like how the Dalton Brothers are U2's country alteregos.

And, in the end, all their songs sound like Coldplay because Chris Martin invented music.
