"We have been listening to the first three Police albums – realising that these records are minimum masterpieces. It's an influence on our album Songs of Innocence. But I think it's gonna be even more of an influence on our next record Songs of Experience."
- Bono, 2016

'40' from the War album almost was never recorded. The band (minus Adam Clayton who had left the studio) had gone over their booked studio time, but convinced the studio manager to let them record '40'. The Edge plays both electric and bass guitar on the song. It was a last addition to the album, but has closed many shows over the decades.
