I really haven't liked u2 in a long time, a few old songs here and there. I think it's gonna be a buncha bands playing 4 songs each...

u2 fans, what songs would you recommend for us to play? I'm pretty set on Bullet The Blue Sky (perhaps a big noise wank would work well in that one), but I don't know what else.

Sometimes what is fun is to look up tabs and lyrics to songs you don't know and try to sing and play them without really ever having heard them.

I'm not a big U2 fan so I don't really know what you should play.

Sunday Bloody Sunday maybe? You could rock out the chorus like Dinosaur did with Just Like Heaven. Here's a video of the song

I'd go for seeking out some very early (pre-Boy) bootlegs on Soulseek or whatever and playing some dodgy pre-fame punk stuff.

Here you go, here's a list: http://www.u2bootlegs.nl/site/index.php?early_days. Now you just need to track one down.

Haha, unfortunately we're not then...it's HARD to get gigs on saturday nights, on a 'holiday' no less...

It's kind of interesting to have a 'template' to build around...I'm digging the challenge.
