Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" - Rated 388/500!

Universal Music and Island Records release this remastered LP to celebrate the 25th anniversary of this landmark album.

The fourth studio album by U2 was originally released in 1984. More ambient than the hard-hitting War album, The Unforgettable Fire showed the most change in direction at the time. The album contains tributes to Martin Luther King, Jr. and Elvis Presley and contains the hit "Pride (In the Name of Love). This was the first collaborative effort for Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois.

"The War album in 1983 signaled the maturation of U2 as artists, but this (album) was the real creative breakthrough." - Robert Hilburn / LA Times / 2004

"The chords came from a 1983 soundcheck in Hawaii; the lyrics about Martin Luther King Jr. were inspired by an exhibit at Chicago's Peace Museum. With backing vocals by Pretenders singer Chrissie Hynde (credited as Mrs. Christine Kerr; she was married to Jim Kerr of Simple Minds at the time), the result was the band's first Top 40 hit." - Rolling Stone
