"When we're in the studio we're very single-minded about things. We know what we want, we know what we don't want and we'll go to any lengths to get what we feel is right. Until we finish the album, things like singles and interviews are really the last thing we're interested in."
- The Edge, 1984

'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.
