"I was studying in college overseas in Berlin (East) in 89, hearing rumors U2 was in Hansa Studios making a new album, heard some of the Salome tracks from the a person selling bootlegs at a local flea market, such a cool moment to be in the same place as U2. Will always hold Berlin moments dear to myself."
"It's a song about uncertainty. We talked a lot about uncertainty when we were making the record. Musically, uncertainty is the antidote to complacency. As far as the song was concerned, all the ad slogans were the real breakthrough for me. My favorite line is 'We're mild and green."
-The Edge on Zooropa
U2 was the fourth rock band to be featured on the cover of Time magazine (following The Beatles, The Band, and The Who), who declared that U2 was "Rock's Hottest Ticket".
