The Joshua Tree is back on the Billboard albums charts, almost 27 years after it was first released. Seriously. We had to do a double-take, too, when forum member Bill shared the news over the weekend. Sure enough, it's sitting at #47 on this week's Billboard 200. Here's a screenshot as proof:
How'd this happen? As the fans in our forum have suggested, I'd bet it's a combination of U2's Super Bowl commercial reigniting interest in the band and the fact that The Joshua Tree has been on sale recently just $$3.99 in the Amazon.com MP3 store.
Whatever the reason, pretty amazing.
