Achtung, U2 fans: Tribute album on the way



achtung.jpgDid you know there was a U2 Achtung Baby tribute album coming out soon? Okay, so maybe it's just me in the dark. It was, afterall, a 1991 album and therefore off my radar screen.

"Dubbed AHK-toong BAY-bi Covered, the full-album tribute will be included with the December issue of Q, which will be available beginning Oct. 26 in shops and online," reports. "The collection also is meant to help celebrate the British music magazine’s 25th anniversary."

Here's the full list of songs and bands involved, according to Eyeballs:

1. Nine Inch Nails, “Zoo Station”
2. U2, “Even Better Than the Real Thing” (Jacques Lu Cont Mix)
3. Damien Rice, “One”
4. Patti Smith, “Until The End Of The World”
5. Garbage, “Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses”
6. Depeche Mode, “So Cruel”
7. Snow Patrol, “Mysterious Ways”
8. The Fray, “Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World”
9. Gavin Friday, “The Fly”
10. The Killers, “Ultraviolet (Light My Way)”
11. Glasvegas, “Acrobat”
12. Jack White, “Love Is Blindness”
