The Killers, Jack White, Depeche Mode and Patti Smith Take On U2

(Gibson) U2's Achtung Baby album has been covered by artists including The Killers, Jack White, Depeche Mode, Snow Patrol and Patti Smith in commemoration of the landmark album's 20th anniversary.

The collection, titled AHK-toong BAY-bi Covered, is the brainchild of Q Magazine. It also marks the magazine's 25th anniversary. Q Editor in Chief Paul Rees says the album sets a new standard for the growing trend of free unique CDs bundled with magazines, pointing out that it features the first new material heard by several acts The Killers, Damien Rice and Garbage in years.

"'This is an entirely appropriate way to mark Q's anniversary and that of Achtung Baby, one of the pivotal albums in our lifetime," Rees said. The magazine/CD package will be available starting October 26. more on this story
