I was in high school and it was the first big U2 album I remember going all in on. I knew War/Unforgettable but just a few songs. When WoWY came out, that was the cassette I had to have. I played it until it warped. I joined Columbia House for the umpteenth time get every U2 cassette. I tried to beg borrow and steal to go to that tour, but I was under 18 and there wasn't the internets and I didn't know when / where they went on sale and there were very few ticketmaster outlets..and I wasn't in the club.
I didn't join Propaganda until right around Achtung - so I had to sit in the nose blee
