"Joshua Tree" Album 30th Anniversary

They've gone on so long they are a parody of themselves and they have always polarised music fans But this song is timeless through the rare gift the band have to reinvent the key themes and images to reflect the current day context. This song, 'Bullet the Blue Sky', 'One Tree Hill', Pride etc have all had that role over time...

"Where the Streets Have No Name" U2
Live with Zoo TV 'Zoomerang' Tour 1993 Sydney Football Stadium

Perhaps it doesn't matter whether the song was inspired by a trip to Ethiopia or the way you judged someone just by their street address in Dublin... it's a special track from what even those who've gone off the band agree is a landmark creative album!!
