"As long as we were staying true to the essence of the song, we're happy to suffer the slings and arrows of fans who aren't as enthusiastic. I think some of the new arrangements are actually better. The fun was to find a song and realise it's better than you thought it was."

'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.
