Which band, artist or song has, in your opinion, most blatantly "borrowed" U2's sound, image or mannerisms?  8)

Watching Keane recently...I reckon they've taken a large slice of U2's sound and onstage antics (thinking of the leadman really). No bad thing though - they've got enough creativity of their own to pull it off I reckon.

As far as the most offensive misunderstanding and misuse of the "U2 vibe", I'd have to say Creed.  It sure ain't the easy, popular answer, Coldplay.

In the last few years especially, it seems every new band is compared in some way to U2.  Usually the Anthemic, soaring guitar sounds that The Edge is now famous for.  The list is endless but we all know who's on top......sorry Coldplay fans, but they even admit it!!!
