The title for the 1987 album The Joshua Tree by U2 was inspired the Joshua tree's etymology.
According to Mormon legend, the plant was named after the Old Testament prophet Joshua, as the tree's stretching branches reminded them of Joshua raising his hands in prayer.
The actual cover art for the The Joshua Tree was shot off of Route 190 in the Mojave Desert in Death Valley.
This guy found the tree and took some pictures.
