The Achtung Baby font?

I'd like to know either what font is used for the title graphic on Achtung Baby, or something similar. Thanks in advance for any help.

The closest you'll find is called Grunge.
Its on most font websites.

And there's always my tattoo, if all you need is the "U2" part...but you probably need more than that, right?

Grunge is similar, but there's another one I found, a font called Cobb, that is more flowy and more like the AB font. It's not as rough as the one used on AB, but it's fairly close. I can send it to you if you'd like, but I have a PC, so if you have a Mac, it won't work on your computer.

They probably didn't even use a font. They probably just drew it themselves. That's what I imagine. It could have been some graffiti written one a wall in Dublin, or whatever. Who knows.

I would dig it if you sent it to me. I don't have it. My address is obiwan1126@aol.com
Thanks!
