U2's 1987 classic has narrowly beaten Guns N Roses' Appetite For Destruction to the top of a new Readers Poll in Rolling Stone Magazine.
The album also beat the likes of Born In The USA by Bruce Springsteen and AC/DC's Back In Black in the poll.
Rolling Stone says that it was "a close race" ultimate won by Bono and co. They also admit that the Clash's London Calling made the grade by "the skin of its teeth" because even though it was released in the UK in December 1979, it appeared in the US the following month.
Here's the top ten:
01. U2: The Joshua Tree 02. Guns n'Roses: Appetite for Destruction 03. Michael Jackson: Thriller 04. Bruce Springsteen: Born in the USA 05. Prince: Purple Rain 06. AC/DC: Back in Black 07. The Smiths: The Queen is Dead 08. The Clash: London Calling 09. The Cure: Disintegration 10. Metallica: Master of Puppets
