"The young men who spent their whole childhoods working up to making Boy had now spent twenty-five years of adulthood working up to making Atomic Bomb. I felt we had somehow got back to the same point again, revisiting that place of youth and innocence with the maturity of a lifetime."

'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.
