U2 releases "Discotheque" single

"Discothèque" is the lead single from Irish rock band U2's 1997 album, Pop.

A 30-second sample of "Discothèque" was leaked to the internet on October 26, 1996. By December 27, the entire track had been leaked, forcing U2 to move up the release date. "Discothèque" debuted at #3 on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart, and hit #1 the following week. It was certified Gold by the RIAA on April 7, 1997. The song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at #10, but dropped off the charts after only four weeks in the Top 40. It was also the band's sixth (and last) Top 10 single in the US. It debuted at #1 on the UK singles chart, remaining on top for one week and spending a total of eleven weeks in the chart.
