"My heroes are the ones who survived doing it wrong, who made mistakes, but recovered from them. We are unlike all the great rock 'n roll bands in that their records generally get worse, whereas our records are getting better."
- Bono, 1989

'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.
