Word on the street is U2 are squabbling over the set list for their big headlining set at Glastonbury this weekend. "Everybody seems to have a slightly different opinion, which is not good news," drummer Larry Mullen Jr. tells the BBC. "There's the 'Where the Streets Have No Name' camp and then there's the more subtle approach, the Achtung Baby dynamic approach where you build slowly. Then there are those who think we should open with '40'. It goes on. There are an awful lot of opinions."

There are an awful lot of opinions, Larry. We have one, too, and we're willing to step up and resolve this internal conflict to preserve the integrity of the "best band in the world" (duh, Bono's words!). Yes, The Amp has put together the ideal Glastonbury set list for you. Feel free to use it, free of charge, boys!

"I Will Follow"
"Where the Streets Have No Name"
"Sometimes You Can't Make It on Your Own"
"All I Want Is You"
"New Year's Day"
"Boy Falls From the Sky"*
"Bullet the Blue Sky"
"Until the End of the World"
"Red Hill Mining Town"
"Staring at the Sun"
"Mysterious Ways"

*We'll even toss you guys a bone and let you promote the one awesome song from the Spider-Man musical
