I think its the fad to sound like U2 right now

A few examples
Coldplay - Talk (one of the tracks off the new album.......and very U2 sounding)
The Killers - Smile Like You Mean it

Interesting! I haven't heared those songs yet, but anyhow, I'm looking forward to hear the new Coldplay.

You picked two of the least U2 sounding songs by two U2 sounding bands.

For The Killers see 'On Top'.

Palace have you heard Talk yet?

What I mean by that song is the guitar rifts sound very U2 influenced

I don't think it's a fad, it's just reality.

U2 have done so many genres that of course they are going to have a lot of influence. As far as I'm concerned, I've never been a fan of power chords too much or cheesy solos, so I think it's great other bands use U2esque guitar work.

post-punk isn't popular nowadays with young or newly formed bands... it's prerogative of oldies

to The Killers I can add All American Rejects.

u2 are getting to the age where a lot of young rock bands grew up on them. So it's just kind of natural, imo, to sound like the band you grew up with and loved.

If I was in a rock band, I'm betting my band would sound like u2. and i wouldnt have even tried to sound like bono or edge, it would just happen.

Did someone mention Talk? The guitar riffs are indeed very U2-sounding, but for some reason that intro, it's a note-for-note copy of a NIN song.

Talk is Computer Love by Kraftwerk with an Edge flair to it....not a bad song just really a ripoff.

People would never admit to wanting to use the U2 sound though and their fans certainly wont admit to it either.
