"We started out as non-musicians. We learned to play after the group was formed. I mean, we started to write our own material because we couldn't play other people's. Adam couldn't slap in time when he joined, Edge could play sort of bad acoustic, Larry had his military drumming, and I started singing 'cause I couldn't play guitar."
- Bono, 1984

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For started out as something completely different, a jam called "Under The Weather Girls". U2 kept the drums for the song it ended up as.
