    Dammit Cedars. You can't do that. If we open it up to Ireland.....where do we end it?

    Unless you want to start talking about Thin Lizzy, you probably don't need to "end it" anywhere beyond U2. When it comes to Irish bands, they're one of a kind. Let's face it, their principal competition is provided by the likes of Westlife and Boyzone! Need I say more? Besides, Ireland though independent is in the British Isles!! And Bono was even voted among the 100 Greatest Britons if I recall...

    Don't mean to offend any of our dear Irish posters, by the way!!

    FYI - If I am forced to drop U2 from my list for political reasons, I have Oasis re-formed and warming up on the subs bench!
