"U2 grew up trying to run away from hippies. There was not a lot of love on our streets where we lived. But as you get older, you realize that love and peace and understanding never comes easy for anybody, at any time. The summer of love was a reaction to race riots, assassination and war. In the world today it takes a brave man to sing a song called Flower Child."
- Adam on Flower Child

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.
