If you're talking about the version on all the file sharing things, it's just the Edge singing it. the Pumpkins did cover "Stay", though. And I believe Collective Soul has covered "I Will Follow", as has Third Eye Blind, Hootie and the Blowfish have covered "Gloria" and "MLK"

Collective Soul has covered I Will Follow. I have a CD of it. Its a pretty rockin version also. One of the few covers of a U2 song that is decent IMO.

Cher on her 1999 Believe tour opened with I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For. It sounded pretty good.

A Christian Band called Caedmon's Call covered In God's Country on one of their live cds. It sounds very true to the U2 version.

A band called Mortal did Running To Stand Still, and Virtus covered that song also.

Dream Theater does "Red Hill Mining Town" and "Bad". Very awesome FULL versions!

DC Talk does "40". Full version.

Radiohead's version of "Sunday Bloody Sunday" kicks arse!!!

To my knowledge, Radiohead never actually did Sunday Bloody Sunday. The so called "Radiohead version" is the mp3 of Edge singing SBS at Pop Mart.

I was going to mention Dream Theater doing Red Hill Mining Town but someone got in ahead of me. I have heard an mp3 of it, it was quite respectable. A similar band, Queensryche, who I have seen live, has done Bullet the BLue Sky, apparently. But not on the tour when I saw them (1995)--I think it was after that.

For less well-known acts I was in a coffee shop once where some guys were playing acoustic guitar and they started playing Mothers. One of the people I was with was also a big U2 fan so we enjoyed that. And I clearly remember walking through Amsterdam and hearing a busker playing One on his guitar and accompanying himself by whistling...

Along with 'Stay', The Pumpkins did at least partial covers of 'Sunday Bloody Sunday'(And no I'm not talking about the Mexico City MP3) and 'Numb'.

Don't know about Live, but Radiohead and Sublime's versions floating around are also the Edge singing.

When Third Eye Blind covered I Will Follow Stephan Jenkins would introduce it by saying: "This is the song I used to masterbate to."

Silly Stephan.
