U2 - Fire


On this date in 1981, U2 released their sixth single, "Fire". It was backed by "J. Swallow". The A side appeared on their second album, October. The B side was a non-LP track that was added as a bonus to a later CD re-release. The single reached the #35 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The Dublin, Ireland new wave band, of course, became a hugely successful mainstream rock act by the mid-'80's and is still going strong.
