"You always want to keep your hands on the wheel, you don't want God to drive. Yet all the best U2 songs have been written by accident. And all the worst have been written by us."
- Bono, 1993

'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.
