U2’s ‘The Joshua Tree’ Has Been Added To Library of Congress Registry

By Nadia Noir

U2‘s The Joshua Tree was our jam back in 1987, but now it’s not just “the jam,” but considered a pivotal album by the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry.

The Joshua Tree was one of U2’s most important albums, churning out three hits, “Where The Streets Have No Name,” “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” and “With Or Without You.”

Other historical recordings
being inducted into the Registry are Creedence Clearwater Revival’s 1969 single, “Fortunate Son”, Jeff Buckley’s 1994 cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”, Linda Ronstadt’s 1974 album “Heart Like A Wheel” and Isaac Hayes’ 1971 soundtrack album, “Shaft.”
