'''''War''''' is the third studio album by Music/{{U2}}, released in 1983. At the time it surprised many for being a NewSoundAlbum where the band [[GrowingTheBeard grew the beard]] as songwriters. Many songs, including the hits "Sunday Bloody Sunday" and "New Year's Day" were very political and directly referred to the civil war in Northern Ireland. It's widely regarded as their first classic album. The album was listed at nr. #223 in Magazine/RollingStone's [[Music/RollingStone500GreatestAlbumsOfAllTime 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time]].

* DeliberatelyMonochrome: The album cover is in black and white.**"Like A Song..." attacks this even more pointedly (see the WarIsHell quote below).



*NonAppearingTitle: "Drowning Man" and "40" (the latter being the number of the psalm it was based on).



**Also "Drowning Man":
-->The storms will pass
-->It won't be long now
-->The storms will pass
-->But my love lasts forever



* RealLifeWritesThePlot: This album directly references the civil war and religious wars that have divided Northern Ireland for decades. This was a very mature and commercially risky subject to tackle for a rock band, but U2 actually managed to get people talking about the subject. Yet, as Bono said himself on their LiveAlbum "Under A Blood Red Sky", before playing "Sunday Bloody Sunday".
