"One of the reason's for U2's longevity is that they are not in music for entirely selfish reasons. I don't want to make them appear as evangelists, which, of course, they were seen as by some sections of the music media in the early 80s, but I do believe that they really think what they do serves some greater purpose than simply filling their bank accounts."
- Brian Eno, 2009

U2 were supposed to play three songs at Live Aid - Sunday Bloody Sunday, Bad, and Pride, U2's big hit at the time. Ultimately, U2 just played Sunday Bloody Sunday and a very long version of Bad.
