Jamming Out & Giving Back: The Most Charitable Stars in Rock

#1Rocking Out for a Good Cause

As the classic rockumentary U2: Rattle and Hum proves, the Irish rock group know how to put on a good show. The film follows Bono, Adam Clayton, Larry Mullen, Jr and the Edge on their North American tour in the fall of 1987.

Fans can relive the live show as well as classic U2 moments including performances with Bob Dylan, B.B. King and an epic live rendition of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" with a gospel choir. 

As famous as U2 are for their live shows, they've become equally notable for their charitable givings. Bono helped create (RED), the organization that has raised over $200 million to help fight HIV/AIDS in Africa while the group will donate $7.2 million to Irish music education by 2015. 

Like the foursome, other musicians have also matched their love of music with their love of giving.
