In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world

The Young Gods and KMFDM, both influences on Achtung Baby. I can't think of any others.

The Associates. Bono said he copied his stagecraft from Billy MacKenzie. Bono also wrote the foreword to a book about the Associates. I think that to this day, the operatic element to U2 stage performances is still influenced by that band.

I got into HAIM via U2's track with them. I streamed their first album and really liked it.
Hold on, people! The man's talking about waste management. That affects the whole damn planet.
