"The reason why we put the child on the LP cover is the reason that it's not war. We're talking about War in different levels. For most the LP is not political at all, it's personal."
- Bono on War, 1983

'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.
