As previously reported, UK’s Q Magazine has assembled a massive U2 tribute album to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the band’s landmark album, Achtung Baby. The compilation, titled AHK-toong BAY-bi Covered, features covers of Achtung Baby tracks by a number of music heavyweights, including Jack White, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, The Killers, and more.

So far, we’ve already heard of covers of “Love Is Blindness” by White, “One” by Damien Rice, and“Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses” by Garbage. Now, with the compilation officially hitting shelves today, a number of other tracks have surfaced, including Nine Inch Nails’ take of “Zoo Station”, Depeche Mode’s renedition of “So Cruel”, and The Killers’ cover of “Ultraviolet (Light My Way)”. Check out streams of all three tracks below.
