I've listened to "Aching Baby" and "Joshua Tree"
Was dating a lady who told me U2 was her favorite band so I thought I'd give em a shot (she also inspired the taco-themed "With Or Without You" parody I wrote/recorded). Preferred "Achtung"- "Mysterious Ways" gets my vote for their best song. But my opinion remained the same- overblown bullshit and I just kinda hate their sound, especially the production and The Edge's guitar style.
Anyway I wouldn't say "Street Spirit" reminds me of any specific U2 song (though again, only heard those 2 albums) but it definitely embodies their spirit (not intended) and I'm sure even Yorke would admit that.
