Music U2 is Listening To

Hello. During the HTDAAB launch party on Sunday night, one of the questions for the band, was what music are you currently listening to and impressed with? Well, I've been trying to research and listen to some of the bands they listed, but I can't remember all of them. I know REM and Elvis Costello was mentioned. They also mentioned Snow Patrol and The Killers. Both of which I'm really impressed with.

Can anyone help me brainstorm some of the other bands they listed?

Thanks!

i'm a huge fan of the killers! i saw them in a small "club" with about 150 people crammed into this little place. they were fantastic live. i also got to meet the band and talk to them for a while (and got autographs). i spent the most time talking to the guitar player (Dave) about U2 and he said that U2 is his all time favorite band and that The Edge is his favorite guitar player. If you haven't heard The Killers album "Hot Fuss" please do yourself a favour and get it!

Thanks, I've heard some, but not enough of the Killers album. I do like what I've heard so far...

Thanks everybody. I like what I've hear from Snow Patrol, The Killers, and Franz Ferdinand. The Who, Elvis Costello, and REM speak for themselves. I still need to check out RazorLight and Motorcycle Club.

Does Larry only listen to The Doves, The Hives, Bjork, JJ72, and Andrew WK?

Liked The Edge's list the best. Some of Adam's too, but I would switch away from most of it.

I thought I read a quote where Bono was pretty complementary of Scissor Sisters - I think thier name has been mentioned as a possible opening act for the upcoming concert as well.

Bono mentioned in a interview with a Norwegian paper that he listened to Scandinavian bands sent to him by Helena Christensen, although he didn't remember any names.
