Who Should Sing the Next Bond Theme?

Who Should Sing the Next Bond Theme? - list of artists to potentially sing the Skyfall title song.

The article suggests:
Adele
Arctic Monkeys
Beyonce
Florence + The Machine
Foo Fighters
Guns N' Roses
Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs)
Lana Del Rey
Muse
Plan B
Rhianna
Take That
U2

U2 crafted perfect Bond song Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me way back in 1995, but unfortunately wrote it for Batman Forever. Bono and The Edge also wrote the title track to Goldeneye that same year, but gave the song to the mighty Tina Turner. So isn't it about time that Dublin's finest stopped teasing us and actually wrote and performed a Bond song themselves? Blending the band's spiky lyrics with that classic rock sound would doubtlessly result in a Bond classic, and the fusion of music's biggest band with the movies' most enduring franchise sounds like an irresistible combination.



Boom Cha!

There are rumors that Duran Duran is set to record the theme for Skyfall (their second Bond theme).

I love DD, so I'd have no problem with that.

Me too! :)

I could also see Muse do it, but they are already a bit closely associated w/ Twilight.

Florence or Adele could do it depending on the screenplay. But I'd lean toward Florence as Adele is way overdone right now.

Killers or Foo Fighters - always a good choice.

U2 have never done one, thus, they are OVERdue! Bono wrote one for Tina, but it's not the same.

Based on the pitiful and paltry song nominees for this year's Oscars, U2 definitely NEEDs to do this so something decent can be nominated in this category!

They would be great, but my vote goes for U2. I'd love to get just 1 new song from them this year.

I wouldn't have a problem with that!  I love DD too and View to a Kill is one of my fav songs of theirs.  I also think U2 or Foo Fighters would be great choices as well.

Nine Inch Nails or Marilyn Manson

I could see Flo, Adele, Muse, or Karen O doing it. U2 could do it, but they did already write a Bond theme. Not sure about Foo Fighters, but they could probably pull it off.

I thought about NIN, but then Trent just did the spectacular cover of Zep's The Immigrant Song for Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

DD already had their shot. It's definitely U2's this round. Love James Bond, love U2 = Perfect!!

Would love to hear U2 do a Bond song, but it would need to be along the lines of Stay or Two Shots of Happy.

I think Adele will end up doing Skyfall's song
