"When I'm on stage I transform myself into someone else, a strange chemical process takes place inside of me. I become fearless and I come out of myself."
- Bono, 2016
Although instrumental, the song '4th Of July' was recorded on the 4th of July, it is about how they felt that day. The Edge was playing the guitar, completely unaware that Brian Eno (one of the producers) was recording it.
