"The spirit of rock & roll is always about innovation and energy, fucking with the technology that was around. In the early days that were just this little printed circuits they overloaded and then you got distorted guitar and amplified instruments. It’s just a different kind of technology now, but I think it’s the same spirit. Our version of rock & roll is reflected in the song MOFO. That’s rock & roll."
- Bono, 1997

Larry Mullen Jr. is well-known for his dislike of the Passengers album. In 2002, when reflecting on the album, he mentioned while it hadn't grown on him, Miss Sarajevo (with Luciano Pavarotti) 'is a classic'. The song was played subsequently on the 2005 - 2006 Vertigo Tour, on the 360 Tour (2009 - 2011) and also on the Joshua Tree 2017 tour (even though it was tiitled "Miss Syria" then).
