U2 have been crowned the kings of legal Internet downloading after their hits were snapped up by fans checking out the first week of computer giants Apple's new cyber jukebox.

Apple boffins have been monitoring what has been going through their system, as a result of the creation of their own, legal downloads store, iTUNES.

And U2 lead the way with an acoustic version of STUCK IN A MOMENT, which heads up the million tracks downloaded in the first seven days of iTunes.

Three of the top six most downloaded songs at ApplesiTunes store were U2's - the other download hits are live versions of Beautiful Day and I WILL FOLLOW.
