Interpol would easily be the best result.

Apologies to anyone who gets The Fray.  :D

aagh no. u2 have jumped on the florence band-wagon :'(. i know u2 are trying to help a european act break the states, but all i can say to those of you across the pond is: cover those ears!! Over-rated/out-of-tune singer and a one album wonder imo.

I've never listened to Interpol...I'll explore this catalogue a bit.

Yes! I'm a big fan, so if you need a nudge in the right direction; you know who to come to.  :)

I won't be able to go to the Philly show next year, so I'm disappointed I won't be seeing them.  :(

yes...but compared to Interpol and The Fray, who are both amazing, and Florence+the Machine, who is very promising, its a huge dissapointment. frankly, U2 should be recruiting newer indie bands like Vampire Weekend and MGMT to open for them. maybe Arcade Fire.

Just because you don't like them doesn't make them one-hit wonders. Look up what that phrase really means.  ;)

I think MGMT declined some time ago. They're a bunch of hacks, anyway.

Here are five songs I'd suggest (no specific order):

1. Evil
2. Barricade
3. Slow Hands
4. NARC
5. Untitled

I think they're more of an album band, so if you like any or all of those songs; look into one of their albums. You can always use youtube to search too.
