"As i recall, 'Fire' was our attempt at a single. God knows where our heads were at! There was something good about it - I just can't remember what it was."
- Bono on the song Fire from the October album
The Rattle and Hum album opens with a live cover of The Beatles' "Helter Skelter". Its inclusion on the album was intended by the band to reflect the confusion of The Joshua Tree Tour and their new-found superstar status.
