"I'll be honest with you: nobody promotes peace as well as me. If I don't win that Nobel Peace Prize, I'm gonna grab a big ass crowbar, and I'm gonna womp me some Norwegian skull."
- Bono during a humor skit on Conan O'Brien's show, 2005
The Unforgettable Fire album title is a reference to "The Unforgettable Fire"—an art exhibit about the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. The band saw the exhibit in November 1983 in Japan while on the War Tour.
