U2

U2 are an Irish rock band featuring Bono (Paul David Hewson) on vocals, rhythm guitar, and occasionally harmonica; The Edge (David Howell Evans) on lead guitar, keyboards and backing vocals; Adam Clayton on bass guitar; and Larry Mullen, Jr. on drums and occasionally backing vocals. Founded in 1976, U2 have maintained a high level of popularity since the mid 1980s. The band has sold approximately 50.5 million albums in the U.S., according to the RIAA, and over 140 million worldwide, has had six #1 albums in the US and nine #1 albums in the UK and is one of the most successful groups of all time. Since the release of their album The Joshua Tree they have been frequently referred to as the biggest rock band in the world by fans and critics alike. The band has won 22 Grammy awards, second only to Stevie Wonder among popular music artists. The band is also politically active in human rights causes, such as the Make Poverty History campaign as well as Live Aid, Live 8, and Bono's DATA (Debt, AIDS, Trade in Africa) campaign.

Jefferson Airplane

Jefferson Airplane was an American rock band from San Francisco, a pioneer of the LSD-influenced psychedelic rock movement. The band's August, 1969 performance at Woodstock is widely considered one of rock's most memorable moments. Various successor incarnations of the band have performed under different names, reflecting changing times and performer lineups, known as Jefferson Starship, and later simply Starship before becoming Jefferson Starship The Next Generation in 1991. Jefferson Airplane was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. The band was responsible for the hits "Somebody to Love," "White Rabbit," "Miracles," "Count on Me," "We Built This City," "Sara" and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now."

U2 should be interesting in this tourney. To some people they are the greatest band in the world while to lots of others they are very hated. I don't think they are the greatest but I definitely like them and have a huge playlist of theirs on my iPod.

not a huge fan of anything U2's done in the past 10 years or so, but they should beat the Jeffersons...although White Rabbit is a great song

gotta go with the plane. psychedelic pioneers in the san francisco scene in the mid-late sixties. but if the dead went down in the first round there is no way the plane should get out either. but bono needs an enima.
