"The one member of the band who believed we could get somewhere was Adam. He was always talking in terms of record deals, making albums and being on the road. To us that was a joke, but by 1980 we all recognized there was something happening. We didn't understand it for a while. You can call it chemistry, because there is no way to describe what it is when a particular group of musicians is playing together and you get the feeling that there is something special there. There was some kind of spark present when the four of us played together."
- The Edge, 1999

The song 'The Electric Co.' is about electric convulsion therapy, which was given to mental patients in state hospitals. It happened to a friend of the band so they wrote an angry song about it.
