"The thing I'm holding onto at the moment is the idea of simplifying our life in U2 because when you start out in a band you have a single passion and thats to write the song you hear in your head and to take it as far as you can. Then as you get on you get all kinds of ideas, but coming thorough at the moment is a strong sense of wanting to make the record that no-one else can make -- I want to be in a great group and don't want to make it
easier for any of these whipper-snapper groups."
- Bono, Christmas 1997

Pride (In The Name Of Love) came out of a soundcheck in Hawaii, the melody and the chords. Which is also the place where the work on the album (The Unforgettable Fire) started.
