"The song has a bit of swagger to it to sweeten the pill. It's about the reason why I'm in a band--and why a lot of people who I meet have taken up electric guitar or whatever it is. There is a hole that you're attempting to fill as a painter, or a filmmaker or a shouter in a rock group,
and that's how you turn the pain of what's happened to you in your life into some kind of blessing."
- Bono on Mofo, 1997
