"I remember Anton [Corbijn] saying, 'Oh there's the Yoshua tree'. He couldn't pronounce the J. So we stood there having our photograph taken by the Yoshua tree. We wanted to laugh but Anton would get very upset if people laughed, or even smiled. It was all very funny, not that you'd know by the facial expressions on the album cover."
- Larry on the cover for The Joshua Tree

Get On Your Boots is about Bono taking his family on vacation to France and witnessing warplanes flying overhead at the start of the Iraq War. The chant "let me in the sound" was developed late in the recording sessions and became a theme throughout parts of the album.
