"There's something about performing our songs in front of a large crowd which works. It's to do with the fact that a lot of those people at those shows are there to celebrate not just their favourite band or a favourite band, but actually part of their history and their life and the music that they have grown up with. As much as we're getting applauded, I think people are also applauding themselves and their experience and their life."

In September 1976, Larry Mullen, Jr. posted a notice on Mount Temple Comprehensive School's bulletin board to form a band. With seven responses to Larry's note, the band which were known at the time as The Hype, The Larry Mullen Band, Feedback and later U2 is whittled down to four as seen from 1980's debut Boy to the current day.
