With Or Without You

Exactly 25 years ago today, the first top 10 hit in U2’s illustrious career hit number one as “With Or Without You” ascended to the top spot on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart for the first week of a three-week stay.  “With Or Without You” would be U2’s first of two consecutive number one hits, as the band also hit the top in August 1987 for two weeks with “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”

Though these would be U2’s only two number one hit on the pop singles chart, “With Or Without You” and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” helped make The Joshua Tree into what has been repeatedly considered one of the greatest records in rock ‘n’ roll history, and they helped vault U2 in the realm of rock ‘n’ roll superstardom.
