"How can you claim to be uncomfortable with public attention and then spend your life playing in a rock band? There are some things about a drummer that I have never figured out. This is a man who would sing 'Dirty Old Town' and other Irish drinking songs a capella nightly in front of 50,000 people and then tell you he doesn't like attention."

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 and 360 Tour (2009 - 2011).
