List Rules Vote for your favorite U2 songs, not just singles and hits.

Here's a list of songs by Irish alternative-rock heroes U2, ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. The band, consisting of singer Bono, guitarist The Edge, bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. is considered by many to be the Beatles of alternative rock. U2's singles and best known album tracks are included here, because the real fans know there are other awesome songs to vote on other than the radio hits. Music videos and audio clips are included next to each track name, so if you haven't heard a song you can listen to it right here on this list. If one of your favorite U2 songs is missing from this poll, add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top.

This list contains songs like "One," "I Will Follow" and "Beautiful Day." If the order of this list doesn't match your favorites, then fight the system by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you prefer.
