Rattle and Hum is the sixth studio album by rock band U2 and its companion rockumentary directed by Phil Joanou,
both released in 1988. The film and the album feature live recordings,
covers, and new songs. To a greater extent than on their previous album,
The Joshua Tree, the band explores American roots music and incorporates elements of blues rock, folk rock, and gospel music in their sound. The motion picture was filmed primarily in the United States in late 1987 during The Joshua Tree Tour and it features their experiences with American music. Although Rattle and Hum
was intended to represent the band paying tribute to rock legends, some
critics accused U2 of trying to place themselves amongst the ranks of
these artists. While critical reception was mixed, the album was a
commercial success, reaching the number one spot in several countries
and selling 14 million copies. The album has also sold over one million copies in the US, and is certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA (each unit of Rattle and Hum is counted as two copies, because it is a double album).

What other band in our position would learn the chords of ‘All Along The Watchtower’ five minutes before they went on-stage, play it live and record it ? No-one.’

— Bono
