"It's the album I am very proud of. The songs themselves, the lyrics, the melodies, the hooks, we were really onto something. The name Pop is absolutely perfect as far as the artistic intent but it's the least pop in that sense. It stood the sense of time, it's really unique sounding."

In 1999, a bag holding personal papers and a laptop computer containing lyrics for the ATYCLB album was taken from Bono's car. Bono offered a reward of £2,000 for the return of the computer. An Irish man returned the laptop after having bought it for £300 thinking it was from a reputable source. He realised it was Bono's when he saw a picture of the singer's child Elijah Bob on the screen, prompting him to contact U2's management.
