"I want to inspire people and fire up people. You know that thing: 'Lie down in your own mess'. Our music is not something to lie down to, to get out of to, to die to, to commit suicide to. It's not a soundtrack to a nervous breakdown. It's music to fire people up so that maybe they will fight back, not again, with sticks and stones but in some other way, some other channel."
- Bono, 1984
