The 11 Best U2 Songs (80s)

Could U2 be the most successful band of all time? 25-years after their inception the band is still the number concert act in the world. They dominate the chart with every new release. They receive Grammy nominations like they were food stamps. Critics love them. Even President of the United States rocks out to U2. What other band has survived as a dominant musical force as long as U2? The Stones are still making music and selling out concerts but none of their new CDs are welcomed with the popular fanfare of a U2 release. Dylan is still a critical force but only Time Out of Mind has turned multi-platinum numbers in the past 20 years. U2 is one of a kind. And here is a look at the decade that made them the premiere act they are today.

The 11 Best U2 Songs (80s):

1. New Year's Day (War)
2. With Or Without You (The Joshua Tree)
3. Pride (The Unforgettable Fire)
4. Like A Song... (War)
5. Where The Streets Have No Name (The Joshua Tree)
6. I Will Follow (Boy)
7. All I Want Is You (Rattle and Hum)
8. Stories For Boys (Boy)
9. Sunday Bloody Sunday (War)
10. Out of Control (Boy)
11t. The Unforgettable Fire (The Unforgettable Fire)
11t. Unchained Melody (Rattle and Hum B-Side) MP3

PS. Before you blast with all the songs I missed...just remember to add a song means I have to remove one.

PPS. Yes, it's a tie for 11th...but there's no way I could exclude one of those songs.
