Against U2 Schlock

This is fairly moving ...

... but am I the only one who thinks we need to retire U2 as the default inspirational music for everything? At this point every inspirational clip sounds like every other inspiration clip, which tends to make things ... less inspirational. They've had a very nice run in the Aughts, but as much as Bono tries to be celebrity spokesman for the world, it would be really nice to hear something else as background music. For the 2002 World Cup ESPN used "Caught in the Sun" by The Calling, which worked just fine; surely there are other bands that could fit the bill.
