Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 223/500!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "New Year's Day" - Rated 435/500, "Sunday Bloody Sunday" - Rated 272/500!


Ireland's premier pop/rock band. U2 burst onto the scene in the early eighties and were dominant through the early nineties! War features such U2 classics as: Sunday Bloody Sunday, New Year's Day and Two Hearts Beat As One. A piece of '80s nostalgia.

"U2 were on the cusp of becoming one of the Eighties' most important groups when War came out. It's the band's most overtly political album, with songs about Poland's Solidarity movement ("New Year's Day") and Irish unrest ("Sunday Bloody Sunday") charged with explosive, passionate guitar rock." - www.rollingstone.com

"'New Year's Day' lifted U2 out of the rock underground for good. As he often did, Bono made up his lyrics on the spot. 'We improvise, and the things that came out, I let them come out,' he said. 'I must have been thinking about Lech Walesa being interned. Then, when we'd recorded the song, they announced that martial law would be lifted in Poland on New Year's Day. Incredible.'" - Rolling Stone
