"The impact that David Bowie had on the culture was immense. Next to the Beatles he stands as the most influential artist of all time. He truly altered the course of music history."
- The Edge, 2016
The Rattle and Hum album opens with a live cover of The Beatles' "Helter Skelter". Its inclusion on the album was intended by the band to reflect the confusion of The Joshua Tree Tour and their new-found superstar status.
