"'Pride' is the best song we've ever written. We've done very few songs, normally we just make music. 'I Will Follow' was a song, but then the next one wasn't until 'Sunday Bloody Sunday'. It's very different from the rest of the album though - there's nothing on there as straight as this."
- Bono, November 1984

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.
