"We did what we always do. We take ideas. We run with them and challenge ourselves. And then we end up putting it back within the framework that U2 can do as musicians to make it our own."
- The Edge on Pop, 2020

'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.
