At this week’s Q Awards, U2 were crowned the Greatest Act Of The Last 25 Years, and as part of the honor Q Magazine has just released issue #305 which hits newsstands today and includes an original CD tribute album  AHK-toong BAY-bi dedicated to the band’s phenomenal album Achtung Baby which was released on November 19, 1991 (I can’t believe it’s been 20 years).  Among the gems is a Depeche Mode cover of “So Cruel”, a version of “Ultraviolet (Light My Way)” by The Killers, and Nine Inch Nails’ rendition of “Zoo Station” with programming by Atticus Ross.  Garbage, Damien Rice, and Jack White are also featured on the album as well as other artists.  To pick up your own copy of the album CLICK HERE.
