Did U2 ever cover Creep?

I just downloaded a file off Kazaa called "U2 - Creep (Live Radiohead Cover)". It sounds definitely like Bono during most of the verses, but the chorus is definitely not him. It sounds a little bit like Van Diemen's Land Edge, but I can't really tell.

Is this U2? And if so, is that Edge?

I've heard it too, I'm pretty sure it's not U2. For instance when would they have covered it? In the 90's someone would have commented on it, and there would be a record of it. It's not like the early years which are poorly documented. Something like this would have gotten a fair amount of attention. Plus U2 doesn't cover any bands of recent vintage, at least to my knowledge.

I hope not Bono would seem so out of place singing those words.

Yeah, as far as I know, Bono has only done a line of the song, with the crunchy guitar part by Edge, inserted into Elevation (the song) live. If it's more than that then it must be someone else.

That was always my favorite bit of it live:

"...won't you tell me something new, I believe in yooooouuuu...

"...but I'm a creep."

*crunch*

Wel it works because of the crunch in Elevation. Fits just perfectly.

Funny thing about the crunch in Creep though is that it came about solely cause Johnny Greenwood didn't like the way the song was going so he tried ****ing it up with the crunch.
