"In a sense we set out to do something out of the ordinary, to sort of get away maybe from some of the caricatures of us and what we do that have been going around, certainly in Europe - to bring the whole thing that we do out of the black and white and into the grey."
- The Edge, 1985

'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.
