Voted for U2 because they beat Creed. And it's pretty ironic that Scott Stapp's favorite album is The Joshua Tree.

But U2 isn't a modern rock band, really. If I were to judge them solely on their modern work, then I'd vote Sonic Youth. In fact, I regret my choice. U2's best stuff is 15 years old, if not more.

Oh, and above I was refering to Pop, by the way.


Like REM, U2 just barely met the qualification specs I set for this thing. The title "Modern Rock" really was to keep things seperate from the Classic Rock tourney.


What were the specs?
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

U2: Mentioned in Bloom County

Sonic Youth: Not

:-D

Seriously, though, U2 made a couple albums that people will be listening to for a long time. On to the next round...
