"I think that, ultimately, the group is totally rebellious, because of our stance against what people accept as rebellion. The whole thing about rock stars driving cars into swimming pools - that's not rebellion. People would be very pleased if I did that, and our record company would be only too pleased to pay the bill, because we'd get in the news and sell more records. That's not rebellion."
- Bono, 1983

The versions of A Sort Of Homecoming and Bad included in the Wide Awake In America EP sound like live recordings but they were actually recorded during two soundchecks of the Unforgettable Fire tour in Europe. The audience noise was mixed in afterwards.
