"We wanted to be the biggest band in the world, that now seems like an innocent conceit. It did give us a healthy respect for how music can change lives and it is a rewarding irony that the success of Music Generation has been more fulfilling than any other achievement."

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, on the 360 Tour (2009 - 2011) and also on the Joshua Tree 2017 tour (even though it was tiitled "Miss Syria" then).
