"[I]t's absurd that a singer in a rock band puts on a pinstripe suit and goes for a walk down Wall Street banging on doors. But you know what? They opened." — Bono

Black Francis (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), David Lovering (drums), Joey Santiago (lead guitar), Paz Lenchantin (bass)

Boston based rock band who formed in 1986. Their musical style combines psychedelia rock and and indie rock. The band's album "Surfer Rosa" garnered them acclaim in Europe. They opened for U2 in 1992 during the ZooTV tour and during this time experienced personal tensions in the band and went on a sabbatical soon after. They broke up in 1993 but reunited in 2004. The Strokes and Nirvana are credited as being influenced by the band.
