U2's Joshua Tree to join US archives

The 1987 record, which spawned hits including I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For and With or Without You, is among 25 works that will join the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry (NRR).

Linda Ronstadt's Grammy-winning album Heart Like a Wheel will also be preserved, as will The Everly Brothers' track Cathy's Clown, Stephen Sondheim's cast recording of Sweeney Todd and Leonard Cohen's anthem Hallelujah.

After announcing the entries on Tuesday, Librarian of Congress James Billington said: "As technology continually changes and formats become obsolete, we must ensure that our nation's aural legacy is protected."
