"Countless shows U2 have walked on to People Have The Power because it reminds us that the real action of the show lies in the hearts and minds of the people who attend it and it’s not the apparatus, however thoughtfully contrived and constructed. The lights, camera, action is the way we draw nearer, but the intimacy is always about meeting people where they are, and reminding us all that we have the power, people have the power."
- Bono in a letter to Patti Smith, 2020

The song 'The Electric Co.' is about electric convulsion therapy, which was given to mental patients in state hospitals. It happened to a friend of the band so they wrote an angry song about it.
