"We are the only group who did Top of the Pops and our single went down next week. At that time we were so thick we didn't get that point for a few times. We're not going to do Top of the Pops anymore. It just doesn't work for us, it's not the right arena for this group."
- The Edge, 1984

'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.
