Bono in the New York Times

Ideally one would include in any discussion of the attitudes prompted by hearing Frank Sinatra sing My Way the fact that Sid Vicious really influenced how many people think of that song. Bono did not. But there is also the fact that Bono probably drinks in places full of well off customers, so maybe the dry cynicism of Frank rather than the in your face defiance of Sid was the dominant trope.
