"There was a mad theory at one point in U2's early days that we were so broke we would start a second band that would perform under a different name and play covers, and would actually earn a living that would support U2, who would continue to perform their own material."
- Paul McGuinness

In late 2004, "Mercy", an unreleased track taken from the How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb sessions, surfaced on the Internet through a fan who had been given a copy of the album containing the extra track. The track is of less than standard audio quality, but managed to become a favorite on fan websites.
