"This is a bit of a gotcha situation for U2. There's a lot of reasons to not like our band. This is not one of them, we pay a lot of tax. And we are very proud to pay a lot of tax. Why would we be the poster child for this? Has it to do with something else?"

'40' from the War album almost was never recorded. The band (minus Adam Clayton who had left the studio) had gone over their booked studio time, but convinced the studio manager to let them record '40'. The Edge plays both electric and bass guitar on the song. It was a last addition to the album, but has closed many shows over the decades.
