"You only know you have a heart when it's broken. When you are a singer in a band you stick your neck out for a living, you get used to knocks. And I've noticed that the spleen and ire of your enemy usually take them out, not you, so you don't have to do anything, almost. There is nothing more attractive than energy moving forward. Our band has it, our movement has it.. It's exciting to be on that train."
- Bono, 2009

'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.
