Musical Interlude: Bullet the Blue Sky (1987)

U2's "Bullet the Blue Sky", off 1987's "The Joshua Tree", wasn't a single per se, but rather a B-side that still got a ton of airplay on album-oriented rock radio channels. Written in response to what vocalist Bono observed during El Salvador's civil war, "Bullet" also directs a pointed message at then-President Reagan.
