"Rock 'n' roll is ridiculous. It's absurd. In the past U2 was trying to duck that. Now we're wrapping our arms around it and giving it a great big kiss. It's like onstage, Some of this bullshit is pretty cool."
- Bono, 1992
U2 named their How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb album like that because Bono envisioned the bomb as his father and the songs as efforts by him to deal with his father's death.
