"Discotheque, we viewed it as our response to Peter Gabriel experimenting. We wanted it to be our Sledgehammer. Imagine if Discotheque was a No. 1 pop song? Now that record makes sense. We didn't have the discipline to screw the thing down, and turn it into a magic pop song. We didn't have the discipline to make MoFo into a loud concoction of rock 'n' roll, trance crossover. We learned from that album. We'd become progressive rock! Ahhh! It's on us!"
- Bono, 2005
