"That song 'MoFo' is hardcore. If I could put my whole life into one song, it'd be something close to that. It's a funny thing to be able to say - that a song sums you up - cause maybe that means you're not that interesting after all."
- Bono in 1997
The album, The Unforgettable Fire, was named after a series of paintings made by survivors of the atomic bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
