We’re the best. No, we’re the best!

Mike Mills of REM talks to MTV: ‘I’d say that U2 are probably the biggest band in the world right now. As to who is the best band in the world, that’s a difficult one. There was a time in the early 90s when we were probably the biggest band. That’s no longer the case. But it doesn’t bother us, it’s not like being the biggest band was a goal for us, it’s not something we ever strove for. But, given a choice between biggest and best, I’d go for best every time.’
