25. U2 ($150 Million)
The Irish rock group comes in at number 25 within this list. Led by front man Bono, this band emerged from the punk period in the U.K. — and instead offered a more melodic/less ‘in-your-face’ presentation. Featuring Bono’s noteworthy vocals, U2 became super popular in Europe before crossing the pond into the U.S.
U2 has won more Grammy Awards (22) than any other band. They’ve steadily been churning out music since the ’70’s. As they continue to experiment with different styles, the core essence of what made U2 ‘U2″ still remains.
