"I think this is the reason why I started to play music. The genius of Edges guitar playing on this song during the live version. The unique tuning and the ebow, blended with delay and shimmer. It's beautiful."
"We've started our album and it's going to blow your mind. It's real punk rock, with some great guitar sounds and some beautiful melodies. The band is so tight coming straight off tour."
- Bono, 2001
