What musician, album, or music genre best describes what working at Steampunk means to you?

U2’s story has many parallels to Steampunk. Formed in 1976 by four guys who had a love for music but little technical proficiency, they didn’t have a lot of success initially but continued doing what they loved and refined their art. Eventually they would find success with some help from several inspirational people, one being Steve Lillywhite. U218 is a compendium of their greatest hits and one in particular, “Pride,” exemplifies the socially conscious themes woven into the U2 fabric.
