"People talk about U2 being a 'live group' . . . because Bono will jump off the balcony to make a point -- but it's not me at all, it's Larry's bass drum."

The Joshua Tree Added To US National Recording Registry

@U2, April 02, 2014

U2's The Joshua Tree, their fifth studio and still best-selling album, has been added to the U.S. Library of Congress National Recording Registry.

According to the BBC, the album is one of 25 recordings added this year to the archive; some of the recordings date back to the 19th century. 

In an article from ABC News, Librarian of Congress James Billington said the recordings represent part of America's culture and history.

Nominations for the archive are usually collated via online submissions from members of the public and the National Recording Preservation Board (NRPB). It appears that U2 were chosen following numerous nominations from the public.
