the verve, but that has nothing to do with what U2 is or isn't doing. they've been my favourite (well above U2) since college.

Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails. NIN was my very first favorite band, but I discovered U2 and then Radiohead in the long days between The Downward Spiral and The Fragile.

Certain eras of Pearl Jam, Genesis and Pink Floyd rank up there, and most recently CHVRCHES. Converge, ISIS and Cave In.

U2 will always be my favorite band, but Pearl Jam is right up there.

U2 will forever be number 1, no matter what.

Bowie, OutKast, Destroyer, Radiohead, The National, LCD Soundsystem follow.

Neither are in my top 5, but with both releasing new music recently, I've listened to a ton of RHCP and The Killers in the past year.

Also looking forward to more new albums from each of them in the next several months. RHCP in October, The Killers in early 2023.
Really enjoying the late career renaissance for both bands.

Did you see that Ashcroft re-recorded 8 songs from Urban Hymns? I guess he wants the nine fans of his solo work to hear what those songs are like without the band that made them great. He redid everything except for This Time, Come On, the Rolling People, Catching the Butterfly and Neon Wilderness.

Don't you love our "justice" system. teenagers getting years for petty theft and millionaire lawyers running decades long tax scheme for millions of dollars gets 5 months, probably less in the end, and doesn't even need to give up any info.
I hate this country sometimes

Don’t you love just our healthcare system? The one where a Hasidic Jewish family’s copay was $5 and mine for my son was $50 because they don’t marry legally, only in the temple, so they can do things like register the mother as single and on welfare…meanwhile the father is in the picture? What a country!

oh cool i can't wait to hear new versions of a bunch of 30 year old songs remade by the artist in the way that they sound in 2022, said no U2 Verve fan ever.

At the moment, it has to be Nine Inch Nails. Ive been a fan for a very long time and the gig they performed a couple of months ago in a tiny venue in Glasgow was one, if not the best I've ever been to.

When working I tend to listen to instrumental music so they've obviously released a tonne of that over the last while as NiN and Trent & Atticus.
