We Don’t Need Another Hero is the first single from the Mad Max soundtrack album, to promote the Mad Max movie with Tina’s first starring role as a main actor. The song was a massive worldwide success and Tina's first #1 in Germany. After the release, Tina added the song to the setlist of her ongoing Private Dancer Tour and performed it since then live at every concert tour. Live versions are available on the Live In Europe album from 1988 and the Rio '88 home video. In 1986, the song was nominated for a Grammy Award.
