"All that shit about being the biggest, the best, the loudest is all meaningless. The biggest turnon about having shitloads of money is the ability to do what you like; you can afford independence that a lot of the so-called indie bands can't."
- Bono, 1992

In the live performance of 'The Electric Co.' from 1983's Under A Blood Red Sky, Bono sang a snippet of Stephen Sondheim's 'Send In The Clowns'. U2 had failed to get permission for this 27-second snippet and later agreed to pay a $50,000 penalty as well as removing the snippet from later pressings.
