"We don't do this for the money- we have loads of it. We're doing this for something much more worse actually. We're doing this for self respect."
- Bono on the Popmart tour, 1997
The song 4th of July is named after the date of birth of Edge's first daughter. It was recorded by accident, Adam was playing some bass lines and Edge just jumped in, both unaware that Brian Eno was recording.
