"There were hundreds of soldiers on the left side of the stadium. The rest of the crowd was made up of Croats and Serbs who had travelled to the show on trains that hadn't run since the start of the war. People travelled from all over the region to see the gig. These people were killing each other only a year before. Here they were together at a U2 gig. What an amazing thing."

Get On Your Boots is about Bono taking his family on vacation to France and witnessing warplanes flying overhead at the start of the Iraq War. The chant "let me in the sound" was developed late in the recording sessions and became a theme throughout parts of the album.
