Music Video of the Day: Sunday Bloody Sunday by U2 (1983, directed by Gavin Taylor)


This video was shot at Red Rocks in Denver, Colorado during U2’s tour supporting War.  (The album, not the concept.)  U2’s reputation has never really recovered from the Songs of Innocence fiasco but when they were a young group and before Bono’s messianic tendencies got the better of him, they were a rocking band who were responsible for some of the best songs of the 80s.  Sunday Bloody Sunday was one of their signature songs and this video captures them at their best.  And, even if modern-day Bono does sometimes seem to be too impressed with himself, no one can deny that he’s done a lot of good in the world.

The song is meant to be a condemnation of the atrocities committed by both sides during The Troubles.

Enjoy!
