Want to feel old? U2's masterpiece "The Joshua Tree" is 25 years old

Joshua20treeI could not believe this when read this: U2's album "The Joshua Tree" turned 25 years old today.  

Next up: Nap time at 2, shuffle board at 3:30 and dinner at 4:15.

Click here for a fun look back at this ever-lasting album that included a load of hits, most notably Where the Streets Have No Name, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, With or Without You and the very underrated In God's Country.

According to that link, arguably U2's most successful album sold 25 million copies. The album was released CD, cassette and vinyl, a novelty at the time.
It included the band's first and last No. 1 singles - Streets have No Name and Haven't Found What I'm Looking For.

This album is truly timeless, and regardless of how many times I listen to any of these recordings they never, ever seem to grow old.

Unbelievable! I remember the day it was released like it was yesterday. I had been a fan for a few years when JOSHUA TREE came out, but still remember how blown away I was with the new songs.
