In the post, the group shares some name ideas of its own, including “You, Too,” “Zoo Stationary,” and “Spherical.”

U2 will choose its four favorite name suggestions, and a poll on its Instagram Stories will determine a winner. The winning channel name will be revealed around the time U2’s next residency run kicks off at the Sphere venue.
