"Hawkmoon 269 was recorded in Sunset Sound, with all that shit that happens around there going on. Search-and-destroy choppers looking for drug busts, Sunset Strip, hookers. Every neon sign advertising sex in some shape or form. You could feel all that coming through in 'Hawkmoon'."
- Bono on recording Hawkmoon 269 in Los Angeles
