"There's something about performing our songs in front of a large crowd which works. It's to do with the fact that a lot of those people at those shows are there to celebrate not just their favourite band or a favourite band, but actually part of their history and their life and the music that they have grown up with. As much as we're getting applauded, I think people are also applauding themselves and their experience and their life."
- The Edge
The song 'The Electric Co.' is about electric convulsion therapy, which was given to mental patients in state hospitals. It happened to a friend of the band so they wrote an angry song about it.
