We Don’t Need Another Hero is the first single from the Mad Max soundtrack album, released in 1985 to promote the upcoming 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. The music video includes many scenes from the movie and was available on the originally Mad Max home video release. Tina added „We Don’t Need Another Hero“ to the setlist of her Private Dancer Tour and performed it since then live at every concert. Live versions are available on the Live In Europe album from 1988 and the Rio '88 home video. The song was nominated in 1986 for a Grammy Award in the category "Best Female Pop Vocal Performance“ and for a MTV Video Music Award in the category „Best Female Video“.
