Why is it that we want our idols to die on a cross of their own making, and if they don't, we want our money back? But you know, Elvis ate America before America ate him.-- Bono, tribute to Elvis Presley, 2004

Dublin band Hothouse Flowers formed in 1985 and were soon called by Rolling Stone "the best unsigned band in Europe." After seeing them perform, Bono was able to get the band to record a single, "Love Don't Work This Way," on U2's Mother Records label. "People," their first album, became the most successful debut in Irish history. In 2004, the band released "Into Your Heart" and also performed at the Glastonbury Festival that same year.
