Yeah I know. McCartney just barely misses out. He's had some in the 60s (Beatles), 70s (solo/wings), 80s (solo), 90s (Beatles), 10s (with Kanye West). That live version of Sgt Pepper with U2 hit 48 in 2005, so close to having one in six decades. Dance Tonight also came close but not top 40. Five out of six is impressive though.

Nope, Springsteen hasn't. He had top 40 singles in the 70s, 80s, 90s, but none since the 90s ("The Rising" charted at 52). You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I think McCartney wouldn't qualify because some of his hits came with the Beatles (not solo) in specific decades. That's why, for the same reason, Bono/The Edge's "hit" with Jay Z and Rihanna does not count, but U2's "hit" with Kendrick does count because the whole band was credited for that one.

Bit of a stretch in my view to claim this....seems the rules are very loose on this chart as all 14 songs off the album have 'charted' and for me personally a 'featuring' isn't a 'real' u2 release.

Hmmmmm record setting in music - usually a fools exercise. If records were the most important thing, 360 - not Zoo TV - would be U2s most important tour. By Grammy count, Atomic Bomb their best album (with JT in third and Achtung,Baby in fifth with just one win). If records were to be believed, U2 is bigger in the U.K. Than the Beatles because they had 34 UK top 10 hits, compared to the Beatles 26. In other words - in music, records mean nothing.
