Forgotten Years

"Forgotten Years" is a song by Australian rock band Midnight Oil released in 1990 as the second single from their album Blue Sky Mining. It peaked at No. 26 on the Australian Singles Chart, No. 1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Chart and No. 11 on the Billboard Album Rock Chart.

The song was inspired by drummer Rob Hirst's grandfather and farther's experience of war and how they said it was up to future generations to avoid wars in the future and not to forget how horrible wars are.

The music video was filmed in Douaumont Ossuary, France.
