"It's about doing it live - you've got to stand in that room and when that floor is shaking and your heart is bursting, you're really taken somewhere. Then you know you're seeing the best band in the world."
- Bono, 2001
In the live performance of 'The Electric Co.' from 1983's Under A Blood Red Sky, Bono sang a snippet of Stephen Sondheim's 'Send In The Clowns'. U2 had failed to get permission for this 27-second snippet and later agreed to pay a $50,000 penalty as well as removing the snippet from later pressings.
