Pre U2 Hype

Before taking the name U2, the Irish band called themselves Hype. In 1977 they had a song called "Street Mission," and it will be performed by the musician-actors in Killing Bono, a film that opens in the U.K. on April 1st.

The comedy is based on the lives of two classmates who left the band that would become U2. The film chronicles U2's career from high school through their 1987 breakthrough album, The Joshua Tree. There is no word on when the film and soundtrack will be released in the U.S.

U2 will headline England's Glastonbury Festival on June 24th
