"The album is quite literally a journey into the unknown, I'd like to say that was by design but in fact it's by accident. In a way, the album starts with birth and ends with conception. That's the truth - I wish I was joking."
- Bono on Achtung Baby, 1992

In 1999, a bag holding personal papers and a laptop computer containing lyrics for the ATYCLB album was taken from Bono's car. Bono offered a reward of £2,000 for the return of the computer. An Irish man returned the laptop after having bought it for £300 thinking it was from a reputable source. He realised it was Bono's when he saw a picture of the singer's child Elijah Bob on the screen, prompting him to contact U2's management.
