"I think that now we’ve realised that rock ‘n’ roll is, in a way, ridiculous — and that’s part of why we’re into it. That’s Marc Bolan on Top of the Pops when I was 13 and I was turned on by him, and I’m not gay. The power of rock ‘n’ roll is this thing that’s obscene, absurd, obsessive, and now we just kinda find ourselves laughing at it."
- Bono, 1992
