"They were given to me by Fighting Fintan Fitzgerald. He’s the guy that kind of buys clothes for us. He found them in some secondhand store. I don’t know which came first, the song or the sunglasses."
- Bono on his The Fly shades, 1992

'40' from the War album almost was never recorded. The band (minus Adam Clayton who had left the studio) had gone over their booked studio time, but convinced the studio manager to let them record '40'. The Edge plays both electric and bass guitar on the song. It was a last addition to the album, but has closed many shows over the decades.
