"The name U2 is nothing else but a letter and a number. We just wanted to come up with a name that would people make up their own mind about the group: U2, what kind of a band is that? We could've called ourselves The Snobs or Deep Zeppelin but we wanted an original name, a simple name."
- Bono, 1983

Pop is the longest album in U2's discography (and nine seconds longer than one hour exact). With all live tracks included, Rattle And Hum is only longer.
