Larry cites Block Rockin' Beats by The Chemical Brothers. Adam cites Back to LIfe by Soul II Soul. Edge cites Wonderwall by Oasis. Bono cites ... er... seven tracks by seven artists.

To mark twenty years of Q Magazine the band are on the cover of the British music monthly (one of twenty covers with twenty artists) and looking back over two decades.

In 1986 Larry recalls driving a green Land Rover, Edge an 'ivory 1969 Triumph Herald', Adam ' a Maserati Ghibli... or it may have been my Golf' and Bono had 'just bought a hearse for spare parts'.

Adam thinks the first album he bought on CD may have been 'Songs to Learn & Sing' by Echo & The Bunnymen, Larry recalls buying Aja by Steely Dan, Edge bought Midnight Love by Marvin Gaye and Bono can't remember the first CD but says Santana's Abraxas was the first album he bought.

As for the songs he wishes he'd written, Bono lists: 'Brownsville Girl, Bob Dylan and Sam Shepard; Unfinished Sympathy, Massive Attack; Live Forever, Oasis; The Last Song I'll Ever Sing, Gavin Friday; Lucky Man, The Verve; Almighty Love, Emm Gryner.'
