Really diverse artists, I like. I just can't imagine the Strokes doing anything U2 though maybe Aerosmith could do Desire.

Filter are the guys that sung that song "do you want to take my picture"

They're one of the best hard rock bands around, and their lead singer is a huge U2 fan. He said their last album was even modeled as an Unforgettable Fire type of album.

Great choices on that list. Some of the best bands around. A couple of other suggestions:

SBS - Pete Yorn
Gone - Depeche Mode
I Will Follow - Collective Soul (they've already covered it)
God Part 2 - POD or Rage Against The Machine

Change is the only constant

I always thought Pearl Jam could potentially do an amazing "Out of Control." Can't you just hear Eddie Vedder's vocals screaming "Monday morning, 18 years of dawning..."

I always figured Elton for a cool version of Running to Stand Still

"You gotta love living, baby, 'cause dyin's a pain in the ass."-- Frank Sinatra

Adam: Look guys, I got a Springfield spoon for my spoon collection.
Edge: Oh boy, here we go...
Bono: Wow, how many is that now Adam?
Adam: Nine. If I didn't have my spoons, I'd go insane.
Bono: Can I see it?
*adam gives bono the spoon, bono throws it away*
Adam: My spoon!

I think that Rock groups that have had songs covered by U2 should return the favor by reuniting and covering U2 songs.

For instance,
ABBA could do "With Or Without You"
The Monkees could do "Spanish Eyes" or "Lemon"

Sunday, Bloody Sunday - Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood (Edge style from PopMart)
Exit & Loves Comes Tumbling - Pearl Jam
Stuck in a Moment - Oasis
Discotheque - Depeche Mode

These would be AWESOME!!! I am a dreamer.


Peace on Earth.

i dunno....maybe its just me.....but i cant imaine anyone else singing u2!ESPECIALLY not One or WOWY..or....anything!sorry for being so not creative and imaginative but even though i love Bruce Springsteen, and a whole load of other artists, i just cant imagine a U2 song being sung without Bono on vocals(and occasional guitar!), edge on guitar,adam on...well you get the picture!

altough,hang on,i think i could def deal with Jeff Buckley on Running to stand still(what an amazing voice)maybe oasis on something,bruce....maybe.
