U2 Top Billboard Money Makers Chart
Irish rockers U2 made more money than any other act in 2005 - according to Billboard's Money Makers chart.
The BONO-fronted band made over $255 million (GBP141 million) from current and back catalogue album and digital sales and box office receipts between 10 January and 4 December 2005.
Sir Paul McCartney was close behind at number four with $84 million (GBP46 million), but would have only made it to number seven if not for THE Beatles 1.3 million album sales in the same time period.
In fifth place was SIR Elton John with $77 million (GBP43 million).
