Awesome U2 Tribute In The Latest Issue Of Q Magazine!

If you haven't already grabbed a copy of the latest issue of Q Magazine, you might wanna think about doing so ASAP.

Not only is the iconic UK music mag celebrating its 25th anniversary, it is also celebrating the 20th anniversary of U2's Achtung Baby by enlisting some of the world's leading artists to pay proper tribute to U2 by recording a new version of the album.

Admittedly, Achtung Baby is perhaps the last U2 album worth giving a hoot about and it's sorta sad to realize that U2 have been huffing along on fumes for that long, but getting to hear bands like Garbage, The Killers, and Nine Inch Nails have their way with these tunes is a total joy.

The album includes the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Patti Smith, Depeche Mode, The Killers and Jack White, each tackling a track from the classic record just for this release.

The full track listing for AHK-toong BAY-bi Covered is as follows:

Nine Inch Nails - Zoo Station
U2 (Jacques Lu Cont Mix) - Even Better Than The Real Thing
Damien Rice - One
Patti Smith - Until The End Of The World
Garbage - Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
Depeche Mode - So Cruel
Snow Patrol - Mysterious Ways
The Fray - Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World
Gavin Friday - The Fly
The Killers - Ultraviolet (Light My Way)
Glasvegas - Acrobat
Jack White - Love Is Blindness

Our personal favorite track is Jack White's haunting/possessed rendition of "Love Is Blindness".

This issue of Q Magazine is on newsstands now, so go grab one already!
