Most famous u2 song

What do you think that's the most famous u2 song, so also for non-u2 fans and people that don't listen to music very much. That song has to be a classic but also a song that's played on the radio very much. We, as u2 fans, can discuss what is the best song or the most classic but what is the most familiar u2 song?

In my opinion it has to be sunday bloody sunday. This song is around for 20 years or so and is played by the radio very much. Also in pubs you hear this song often.
One, considered as u2's most classic song by u2 fans, I don't think so. What do you think? New years day, Pride, With or without you, streets???

Sunday Bloody Sunday
Pride
Where the streets have no name
With or without you
One

In the U.S., it would be With Or Without You. It went straight to number one and catapulted the band into superstars.

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For. That's the one song all my non-U2 fan friends and family know.

I don't think you'll see any song off the POP album nominated here.

Cheers,

Of what I've seen, I think it's either 'Where the Streets Have No Name' or 'With or Without You'. Generally more non U2 fans seem to associate them with the Joshua Tree than Achtung Baby, i.e. 80s rather than the 90s.

Yeah, like D'oh! said... Streets/WOWY/One/Beautiful Day, it depends I guess. Their material is just too damn vast and sprawling.


by the way, at Aardvark.

all non-u2 fan people i meet always mention "One" when i mention the band.

although in a post ipod commercial era i think Vertigo would be a safe bet - is there anyone who hasn't seen that ad?!?
