Where do u2 rank in your list??

Heres a question for ya. We are all obviously here because we like/have liked u2. I realise there are likely to be people who like u2, but have other acts ahead of them in the pecking order.
So, am thinking, are u2 yer No1, if not, where do they rank in your list?

For the record, U2 are my No1 faves by some distance.....followed some way behind by James in 2nd place

Hows about you?

6th

1. Kate Bush
2. Todd Rundgren
3. The Police
4. Tori Amos
5. The Cure
6. U2

There are parts of U2's work that rank ahead of any artist but there is so much that I don't like that came out in this last decade. There isn't weakness like that in any of the artists I like above U2.

1. U2
2. Peter Gabriel
3. Yes (70's only!!)
4. Blur
5. Red Hot Chili Peppers
6. Collective Soul
7. King Crimson

U2,
Joy Division,
The Beatles,
The Pixies,
Radiohead,

At the end of the 90's I would have said this was a close contest but not anymore.

It's the exact opposite for me. During the 90s I was way more crazy about them and U2 was far and away the top band in my life. Now they're still in my Top 5 but it's not so black and white anymore. The Beatles, U2, Pearl Jam, REM, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Tori Amos are all up there but don't ask me who is #1.

Top Seven (and then some)

1) The Beatles
2) U2
3) Bob Dylan
4) Prince
5) The Police (and Sting before 1994)
6) The Stone Roses
7) Counting Crows

Runners-Up are The Byrds, Bob Marley, Juliana Hatfield, and maybe Sinead O'Connor. If you're into older stuff I love Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday a lot. Also Art Blakey and John Coltrane.

Damn! I forgot to put Michael Bolton on my list....

Hmm,

this is tough

1. U2
2. Stevie Wonder
3. Midnight Oil
4. Chili Peppers
5. The Beatles


something like that... to me U2 are a clear number one, the others can shift around alot, i like variety ie jazz hiphop folk soul electronica techno but for me an act must have staying power to be a true favorite..
